Master course in social entrepreneurship 2.0, The term social entrepreneurship 2.0 refers to the organization of a business around a social or environmental cause, including nonprofits and charities as well as for-profits.
Unlike traditional entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs want to make a difference in the world. Often, they have a personal connection to the causes they support, which inspires the mission of their businesses.
In traditional businesses, success might be measured by market share or revenue growth year-over-year, but social entrepreneurs focus more on what they’re doing right, like creating jobs, planting trees, or giving to charities that solve the problem they’re solving.
From product development to branding, from supply chain management to financial planning, social enterprises have a core mission that influences how they’re managed.
Most social enterprises measure success using a triple bottom line instead of just earnings:
· Whether your business is designed to make a difference in people’s lives, improve lives, and develop a community in a sustainable way.
· Your environmental impact—how you help create a sustainable planet or reduce your carbon footprint (CO2 emissions).
· The goal of a social enterprise is to make money so that it can be sustainable, pay workers, and grow.
The profits of a social enterprise are allocated to creating positive change in the world, as opposed than reinvesting them in the business.
There’s a big difference between social enterprises and corporate social responsibility (CSR). “Doing good” isn’t something you add to your business model. It’s what you value most.
