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.
