Social Enterprise and Purpose
“Please accept my resignation. I don’t care to belong to any club that will have me as a member” Groucho Marx
Our problem was the converse, having joined a club that told me our work was beyond their focus.
We needed support because we were taking a stand against #corruption and were already seeing #fakenews from detractors claiming that we were a business masquerading as a charity. To us #socialenterprise was a business for #socialpurpose, using its profit for the benefit of the community, we called it #profitforpurpose.
I wrote recently of how founder Terry Hallman died in the trenches, calling for support from #USAID and others.
Today his argument that #capitalism should be reformed to pur people before profit it being re-iterated by the #BritishAcademy and featuring large at #Davos
Is it not time to show #inclusion?
