“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” George Washington Carver

What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.
I personally “Believe in Kingdom Transformation” because I know there is only ONE “Life for Significant”.

Align Social Purpose, Audacity, and Market Place!

Right folks, this is your turn to create your own version of the Big Society. Here’s a set of ideas to kickstart it!

What if…

1) you called 20 other people who share the same job title, background and objective as you, and started a lobbying group, a think-do tank, or a learning group… to bring yourself closer to your vision?

2) you started an almost-self-sufficient micro-economy of experts, with identical values, fair-trade supply chains and work ethos, in order to get better clients/investors/supporters?

3) you dropped your workload for an hour, a day or a week, and went to shadow the boldest activists and be inspired? Talk to the winners of the Ogunte Women Social Leadership Awards 2010

4) you started a social trading space that suited all your needs…
I personally found something very suitable in this initiative called Third Door Office and Playspace:
Third Door combines professional, flexible, co-working office space, a communal social area and fully equipped Ofsted regulated childcare for pre-school children…

Thanks to Patricia van den Akker, from Germination, for the tip!

The Ogunt礙 Women’s Social Leadership Awards 2010

The Awards were a great celebration of women’s outstanding achievements, bold initiatives and courage to bring about solutions to pressing social issues. Dr Rachel Armstrong, guest speaker, encouraged women in the audience to define their vision and to never be put off by people who impose their “norm” and tell you how or where you “should” be.
This event celebrated women who had gone the extra mile to challenge and overturn inadequate policies, inequalities and unfair laws, and who were capable of demonstrating their social impact.
