Social Enterprises and Social Purpose ventures: where do you fit? Wednesday, November 16th: 4:30-6:00 pm
Are you a start-up with a cause? Does your non-profit operate with a social purpose? Where exactly do you fit on the social innovation spectrum?
There are distinct business models emerging that enable non-profits to support themselves financially in innovative ways instead of relying solely on grants and donations.
At the same time, new business ventures are popping up that have all the money-making sense of a for-profit enterprise, the social goals of the public sector, and the mission-driven passion of a nonprofit organization. Combined, those attributes put market-based solutions to social problems, generating both financial resources and social value.
Essential to the success of these social enterprise endeavours is an effective business model. We will review a number of models to help workshop attendees determine where they fit one the social innovation spectrum, and what business model is most appropriate to power their mission.
