“Tony DiMarco has done an outstanding job in preparing our students for the 2019 NY State Business Plan Competition. Thanks to his hard work and our students' creativity and professionalism, five winners at this year's regional competition were from SUNY New Paltz! Congratulations to our 14 entered teams and to Tony for his fine work!”- Ms. Kristin Backhaus, Dean of the SUNY New Paltz Business School

 “I am so pleased to be able to collaborate with GCSEN Foundation and its 4P Social Entrepreneurship framework. It is palpable, it is real, it is compassionate, and it is possible to move our world to a better place via universities, as vital place-makers in the local economy.”- Ms, May Kate Naatus, Dean, Saint Peter's University, NJ

 “It is great to see the progress Vassar College students made through GCSEN's self-paced internship program, supported by coaching. We are pleased that four students represented us with social ventures they created through the program, and we’re especially proud to see one student's social venture take first place in the NY State Business Plan Regional Competition in the Products and Services category. GCSEN's program has been a great way for our students to take a structured approach to making a meaningful social impact.”- Ms. Stacy Bingham, Director of Career Development, Vassar College; President & Executive Chair, Liberal Arts Career Network

"What a great report and what great presentations Mr. DiMarco's SVI students created! This partnership, and how quickly we collectively have advanced the topic of Social Entrepreneurship at Vassar College is just short of amazing. Thanks to him and Mike Caslin for going above and beyond and looking forward to keeping this effort moving forward." - John Bradley, Executive Director, Vassar College Urban Education Initiative

 “I wish you all the best in this endeavor. It is definitely a great cause and I fully support it.”— Prof. Jay Rao, Babson College

 “Babson College has had the benefit of Michael Caslin’s energy and counsel as an adjunct faculty member for years and I have personally witnessed his impact on students in teaching the Social Entrepreneurship course. He has served a valuable advisor to many before the creation of the Lewis Institute and campus wide initiative. As a National Board Member for NFTE, I can appreciate the magnitude of the challenges he faced over 20 years as the organization’s CEO…the reputational capital that was built far exceeded the formal resources they had available to them.” — Observations by Dr. Len Schlesinger, Babson College, President
