The Process

Social enterprise development is a complex business process. We provide consultation and development services to charitable and non-profit organizations whether they are just beginning to look at potential SE opportunities, are conducting the feasibility and market research on the way to developing a full blown business plan, are looking for funding and/or partnership opportunities or looking to expand an existing enterprise through a number of the new structural and legal options that have recently become available.

Do you have a ‘Future Plan’?  Have you conducted a needs assessment and created an asset map? Have you formed a social enterprise committee to help guide the process? Have you done the feasibility and market research? Have you applied for funding from any of the numerous groups that help non-profits to examine social enterprise opportunities? Have you created a financial model of your existing or proposed enterprise? Have you researched non-traditional funding opportunities or begun the process of seeking out corporate or institutional partnerships?

These are some of the questions that we  ask when we begin to look at the potential for social enterprise development (or expansion) within an organization.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Or call Joseph MacLean at: 778-835-5801.
