There are many ways to do good. Many people do this through volunteering. While this is very commendable, indeed necessary, and personally fulfilling, real change comes through a scaleable, sustainable model which generates economic acitivty which benefits people and the planet. For this reason, I am passionate about social enterprise building as it places the social mission first and generates profits which can recycled back into the mission instead of purely to disconnected owners or investors.
This is not to denounce all investors and the investment model. That would be foolish as to achieve scale, external investment is a powerful enabler and is still a necessary part of the global financial system. The key is to transform the model to allow conscious investors to connect with conscious businesses. This has already started happening and promises to deliver immense benefit to everyone.
Key to this new model and to transforming conventional business is corporate governance. Put simply, this means implementing systems which ensure the organisation is run well, acting ethically and ensuring transparent communications with all stakeholders. I run a globally-recognised website on the subject, www.applied-corporate-governance.com (ACG), where you can find out more.
Turn your passion into a sustainable social enterprise!
Let me be clear: I can help you clarify your vision, set goals and develop a strategy to achieve them. But it is you will do it. I am but a facilitator of your own potential. The passion and desire to help others and make the world a better place has taken you this far and is the single most important thing.
Now is the time to get started in your social enterprise building endeavour, and I will be here to listen, support and where necessary guide you to success.
I have been starting businesses and helping others start and grow them for almost 20 years now, starting when I was still in my final year at university. Not all have been successful so I know how hard it can be. I also know how much determination it requires, but also that when you pursue your passion it does not feel like an effort and you are always keen to get to it!
Often all you need is someone to talk to, confide in – few people understand the mindset of an entrepreneur, and fewer still the social entrepreneur. I offer:
