Pushing Boundaries: Social Entrepreneurs’ Attitudes to Profit and Mission Lock
“Pushing boundaries: social entrepreneurs’ attitudes to profit and mission lock”
Hosted By: Tom Fox and Steven Leach from UnLtd
Friday 11th April, The Dance Studio, 11:00-12:00
“This session goes to the heart of what it means to be a social entrepreneur - why are these social entrepreneurs opting for a for-profit model, and what are they doing to lock in and demonstrate their social mission for the long term?”
An increasing number of social entrepreneurs applying for UnLtd support have set up their social ventures as for-profit companies limited by share. Critics argue that this trend is driven by investors, but new research into social entrepreneurs’ attitudes to profit and legal form suggests that this is only part of the story.
Hear from social entrepreneurs who are currently facing this dilemma, put yourself in their shoes and help them decide what’s best for their social ventures.
