graphic showing web of people connected Have you ever thought about the different kinds of people and organizations that are directly and indirectly affected by your work? By creating a visual, colour-coded stakeholder map, you can quickly see the “ecosystem” within which you work, who your main collaborators and partners are, and where you have your greatest impact. You can also use the information to develop collaborative capacity and shape social impact arguments. In this hands-on workshop, you will construct a stakeholder map for your own organization and then consider its implications for stakeholder engagement, capacity-building, Theory of Change planning, and evidence-gathering for evaluation.

Facilitator: Margarit Roger

Non-profits and social entrepreneurs are increasingly considering social enterprise – a blended value model where business methods are put to work achieving social impacts. This workshop will explain what social enterprise is and what it’s not, then lead participants through an overview of the typical steps in an enterprise’s early development. The facilitator(s) will introduce participants to tools for deciding if you’re ready to take on an enterprise, how to clarify your idea, test its feasibility, plan the business model including legal and financial considerations, start-up and then evaluate and strengthen.

Anyone curious about social enterprise will benefit from this half-day session. Non-profit organizations considering the model and economic or business developers wanting to expand their knowledge are particularly welcome. All participants will receive a copy of Using The Business Model Canvas for Social Enterprise Development, a great tool to help you think about your enterprise idea.

Facilitator: Frank Atnikov
