Transcript of Social Enterprise: Make A Change

..so what could be the solution? What caused it? Social Business & Social Entrepreneurs SOCIAL BUSINESS SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS Social business is composed by actual companies that have a social (or environmental) goal but that aim to achieve it through competitive business models present on the market without the requirement of public funding or private donations (excluding the start-up phase) 'Unreasonable' people who persist to bring forth a new economic idea, where capital is a tool to be used to produce social and environmental wealth on their territory. In this time of struggle being faced by markets and of deep credibility and planning crisis within public administration, a part of society is trying have a helpful and productive impact on it’s country, without the necessity of political action, but through social business. But what is the
definition of a
Social Enterprise? Social enterprises are not-for-profit private organizations providing goods or services directly related to their explicit aim to benefit the community. They rely on a collective dynamics involving various types of stakeholders in their governing bodies, they place a high value on their autonomy and they bear economic risks linked to their activity. But what criteria does a social enterprise have to fill? Definitions and approaches: the EMES definition and compass What is it and who are they? Opportunities presented by 'The Social Enterprise Way' Opportunities for third sector actors to increase their sustainability and long term effectiveness

Opportunities for stakeholders involvement in broader community development , participatory governance, hybridization of resources, mobilization of social capital Addressing social, economic and environmental challenges in innovative ways (i.e. production models, quality and variety of services and products)

Triggering empowerment trajectories for disadvantaged groups in society based on production activities

Complement (not substitute) public and third sectors in the provision of social services as well as in employment generation and self-employment through financial inclusion “whenever I wanted to deal with a social or economic problem, I tried to solve the problem by creating a business around it" But how big can Social Enterprise become? IS THE SKY THE LIMIT? We believe the bigger Social Enterprise can become, the the future will be. Ok perhaps a little too big... Let's stay focused... Social Criteria 1)An explicit aim to benefit the community
2)An initiative launched by a group of citizens
3)Decision-making power not based on capital ownership
4)A participatory nature, which involves the various parties affected by the activity
5)Limited profit distribution Criteria: ECONOMIC CRITERIA 1)A continuous activity, producing and selling goods and or services
2)A high degree of autonomy
3) A significant level of economic risk
