Welcome to Social Business

Welcome

Welcome to Social Business: a Sustainable Way to Face the Most Pressing Needs of Our Time

This course is about learning what a Social Business is, as well as the philosophy behind the concept. It is about learning how to measure the positive impact that social business can have on society and how to start visualizing which variables you should take into account in order to create a sustainable social business.

The course is organised in four weeks, in which we will cover different topics:

  • First, we will clarify the concept of Social Business and how it differs from other similar concepts.
  • Second, we will identify different social needs that can be covered through a Social Business.
  • During the third week, we will visit the basic concepts to understand how to measure social impact and which instruments are available for that purpose.
  • Finally, in Week 4 we will learn how to design a sustainable business model.

We encourage you to participate in this journey, discovering existing social businesses and sparking ideas for new ones!
