In this online session, you will find out how to design a dynamic plan-on-a-page for your purposeful business, helping you to stay focussed and maximise your impact.
Social enterprises take a business approach to achieving their mission and making a difference. To ensure lasting impact, they require a viable business model. By ‘business model’ we mean a design for the successful operation of a business. It describes how you will reach customers, give them something they value, and make enough money from doing so to achieve your social impact. A Social Business Model Canvas provides a powerful visual tool to help with planning your business.
This workshop will provide an introduction to the Social Business Model Canvas, a social impact iteration of the renowned Business Model Canvas used by start-ups and established ventures all over the world.
The Social Business Model Canvas encourages founders and managers to look at how to:
– define your value proposition
– reach your customers
– engage with key partners and stakeholders
– make enough money
– maximise impact
Social enterprises, trading charities and purposeful businesses in Oxfordshire, UK.
Early-stage social enterprises and impact ventures will be able to use this tool to help them articulate their ideas and kick-start their business.
More established organisations will also benefit from taking a fresh look at their operations and business design.
