Navigating social and commercial objectives in social enterprise

Navigating social and commercial objectives in social enterprise

Social enterprises have to find ways of having a big social impact on people and the planet while also running a good business. How is this done, and how do you get over the tension between commercial and social objectives?

Join the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP) for this ESRC Festival of Social Science workshop! The CUSP team will draw on their research to help you understand the tensions you might face and find a way to navigate through them. This includes thinking through challenging issues such as:

  • Should a social enterprise grow its business if it is not its core social mission?
  • Should we hold onto knowledge about our innovations or share them broadly?
  • Should we employ experienced and highly skilled staff or employ those needing the experience and skill development?
