How to Navigate

  Starting a social enterprise, just like starting a business, requires some level of planning, regardless of the size of the enterprise you're looking to launch. It requires knowing what skills and resources you already have, and what you need. You will gain skills to reflect on the knowledge and abilities that you and your teammates have, and be able to assess the resources at your disposal, such as financing, money, equipment, intellectual property, and more.  For those who have an enterprise idea, this session is great for mapping what you have and what you need in order to move your idea forward and closer to launching. You'll leave with a clear understanding of the gaps you need to fill to move closer to success!

  Social and entrepreneur go hand in hand; social entrepreneurs want to take action to solve social and environmental goals using efficient business tools.  However, balancing social and entrepreneurial goals can can be in opposition. One of those areas is in Sales. Socially-minded people do things because they care, not for profit, and sometimes sales can be seen as a dirty word. However, income from sales is the life-blood of a social enterprise; it's necessary for its survival.   Sales is misunderstood and much reviled. That needs not be the case. This course is designed to help socially-minded people "sell" or as we like to say "add value" to others' organizations and lives in order to generate revenue for the social enterprise. We'll cover myths about sales, the 3 key ingredients to an effective selling approach and finally, we'll discuss the basics of a sales strategy so that you can earn more revenue in the most effective way talking to the right people.   This course will introduce you to a sales approach that is less about selling and more about building relationships. We hope you discover your new-found love for sales! .helpButton { display: none; } body.bg { opacity: 0; -moz-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -webkit-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -o-animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; animation: cssAnimation 0s ease-in 2s forwards; -webkit-animation-fill-mode: forwards; animation-fill-mode: forwards; } @keyframes cssAnimation { to { opacity: 1; } } @-webkit-keyframes cssAnimation { to { opacity: 1; } } @import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Fjalla+One|Raleway); @import url(https://socialenterpriseinstitute.ca/styles/learnUponMin.css); Read More
