“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”.

The Government and Social Enterprise
Chris White
Chris White MP 
The Government has certainly talked the talk on social enterprise. Will it be able to offer anything more concrete? We’ve been taking a close look at some of the issues raised.   

As amendments to Chris White’s ‘Social Value’ Bill remove mention of social enterprise, Rodney Schwartz asks if we should be worried.  

News that the Government may cut Feed in Tariffs has caused a landmark social investment deal to stall. Tom Cropper examines some of the implications and whether, when it comes to social enterprise, we can take the Government at its word?  

Social enterprise and the feral youth 
The face of youth? 
According to Barnardos, half of us believe our children have turned feral. It’s not an image Rodney Schwartz recognises. He’s dedicated his debate on Social Edge this month to the question of the plight facing young people.  

Meanwhile, our interns at ClearlySo have been investigating ways in which we can better engage with young people. Katrina Cruz has produced this excellent blog reporting on their work so far.  

ClearlySo Gem: Claire Young

Continuing the youth theme, our interview this week features former Apprentice finalist Claire Young. This month she launches a brand new project to kickstart entrepreneurism with young people. She’s been telling us all about that and how she made the transition from the shark tank of Alan Sugar’s boardroom to the wonderful world of social enterprise. Head to our blog for more.  

Social Enterprise Vox Pops

voxpopsWant to know what Darth Vader thinks about social enterprise? Then check out this video. As part of their project on youth outreach our interns headed out into the city, armed with a microphone, a camera and a lot of questions. Their mission: to see if the youth of Britain had caught the social enterprise bug. A great little video made all the more entertaining by an impromptu appearance from everyone’s favourite Sith.
