Social Entrepreneruship

The companies that are capable of managing this most effectively are able to strike a balance between benefiting society and drawing a profit. Unlike a non-profit that is fully focused on philanthropy or a private enterprise that’s main objective is to derive profits, social entrepreneurship inherits the philanthropy of a non-profit with the profitability of a private company. It is striking this balance that ought to be reflected in the business plan. Therefore, a professional business plan will communicate how the company will strike this balance through its business model, marketing strategy, and financial projections.

Business Model

Social entrepreneurship is an increasingly common business model with now niche investors seeking to support such companies. The best approach to creating an effective business model for social entrepreneurship is to structure it in a way such that the philanthropic element supports the company as a whole. For instance, some sustainable sourcing practices are promoted to sell more products. However, the business model ought to not sacrifice its profitability for this positioning, but rather structure its philanthropic initiatives in a way that supports its overall performance.




Marketing Plan

The marketing section in a social entrepreneurship business plan is designed to find ways of leveraging the philanthropic aspect of the company. For instance, a marketing plan that communicates the key advantages of the company through public relations to a targeted audience may be an effective strategy. Many private companies and non-profits are more interested in forming strategic partnerships with social entrepreneurs because it makes their company appear more ethical and socially responsible. In all instances, the customer acquisition should be calculated relative to the value generated, measured as its impact on both society and the profit margin.




Financial Projections

Even though a social entrepreneurship business plan may be targeting investors interested in philanthropy, it is still not likely an excuse to be unprofitable. It is held to the same terms of profitability as all other for-profit companies in most cases, and the financial projections should reflect this profitability in a way that is not founded upon speculations. Professional financial projections will be founded upon reliable third-party market research, comparable companies, and reasonable assumptions about the impact of the strategy in the next three to five years.
