Non-profits and social entrepreneurs are increasingly considering social enterprise – a blended value model where business methods are put to work achieving social impacts. This workshop will explain what social enterprise is and what it’s not, then lead participants through an overview of the typical steps in an enterprise’s early development. The facilitator(s) will introduce participants to tools for deciding if you’re ready to take on an enterprise, how to clarify your idea, test its feasibility, plan the business model including legal and financial considerations, start-up and then evaluate and strengthen.
Anyone curious about social enterprise will benefit from this half-day session. Non-profit organizations considering the model and economic or business developers wanting to expand their knowledge are particularly welcome. All participants will receive a copy of Using The Business Model Canvas for Social Enterprise Development, a great tool to help you think about your enterprise idea.
