ClearlySo Newsletter | August 24th 2012
Twitter Facebook LinkedIn
Dear friends,
You could say that 2012 has been a PR disaster of sorts for the social enterprise sector; with A4e making the headlines for all the wrong reasons and corporate tech giants Salesforce persistently trying to take our name in vain.
As these stories rumble on, we’re taking an optimistic outlook at ClearlySo. We recently wrote about an inspiring social enterprise called Vi-Ability that is training young football enthusiasts in the commercial management of a club.
We’re also trying to put a positive spin on the back to school blues, asking whether the social economy can present new untapped opportunities for graduates looking for work.
All that plus the other stories making the headlines, events and jobs in the sector: it’s the ClearlySo newsletter.
Have a great weekend,
The ClearlySo Team

The debacle surrounding Salesforce’s attempt to trademark the term “social enterprise” rumbles on, with Social Enterprise UK now fighting the corner for our sector. Rodney Schwartz updates us on recent developments in the debate.
The footy may be back on our screens but as an industry that employs thousands of people, are unsustainable financial practices acceptable? One social enterprise, Vi-Ability, is trying to tackle the culture of irresponsible business in the sport from the ground up.
Over the past month, students everywhere have been anxiously receiving the exam results. For those who don’t have another academic year ahead of them, the prospects can often look bleak. Can social enterprise plug the gap?

Another of the big sector stories of 2012 continues, as welfare-to-work company A4e are told by the Advertising Standards Authority that describing themselves as a ‘social purpose company’ is misleading amidst claims of fraud at the firm. This article from The Guardian has the details.

The £10m Investment and Contract Readiness Fund, being delivered by The Social Investment Business on behalf of the Office for Civil Society with support from Deutsche Bank has trebled its capacity with the announcement of 12 new approved providers of investment and contract readiness services.

Ambitious social ventures looking to raise new investment or compete for public service contracts can apply for a grant between £50,000 and £150,000 to partner with specialist providers of a range of professional services including law, financial management, corporate finance and public service commissioning to become investment or contract ready.

How many of us turn off our screens when we get up to make a cuppa? What about during lunch? How many of us even leave our monitors (or worse, PCs) on overnight? Your computer screen uses energy when left on, even when it’s not receiving a signal. This free app from Ecobenefícios turns your screen off when you walk away from your computer by accessing your webcam; potentially saving you and your office from wasting energy.
