"Social Return on Investment" (SROI) has been called a boon and a bane in the evaluation world. As an analytical tool, it tries to measure the social value produced for every dollar invested in an initiative targeted at social change or improvement. On the one hand, it attempts to describe the critical social value that arises from work being done often by community organizations in a way that other sectors might quickly understand. On the other hand, many feel it can be reductionist and prone to misunderstandings and financial manipulations. So, how do we as community developers decide if it's right for us and when to use this particular tool?

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 facilitators 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 the Canadian Guide on Social Enterprise, developed by Enterprising Non-Profits.

Facilitator: Frank Atnikov
