Professor Michael PorterBishop William Lawrence University Professor at Harvard Business School

Page 25: Exploring Social Finance & Social Enterprise

“In recent years business increasingly has been viewed as a major cause of social, environmental, and

economic problems. Companies are widely perceived to be prospering at the expense of the broader

community...The solution lies in the principle of shared value, which involves creating economic value in a way

that also creates value for society by addressing its needs and challenges…The purpose of the corporation

must be redefined as creating shared value, not just profit per se. This will drive the next wave of

innovation and productivity growth in the global economy.

Page 26: Exploring Social Finance & Social Enterprise

”The concept of shared value recognizes that societal needs, not just conventional economic needs, define markets. It also recognizes that social harms or weaknesses frequently create internal costs for firms—such as wasted energy or raw materials, costly accidents, and the need for remedial training to compensate for inadequacies in education. And addressing societal harms and constraints does not necessarily raise costs for firms, because they can innovate through using new technologies, operating methods, and management approaches—and as a result, increase their productivity and expand their markets.

Page 27: Exploring Social Finance & Social Enterprise

MOTIVATION

Opportunity:Social enterprise and social finance strategies present an opportunity to leverage your assets and effectively complement existing work to support community housing development, provide opportunity, and reduce poverty.

BACKGROUND

Page 36: Exploring Social Finance & Social Enterprise

BACKGROUND

Social enterprise is not for every organization.

It presents an opportunity for an exciting and important hybridization of the work of social good organizations,

but it may be reckless for some organizations to start a business or enterprising activity that forces them to

drift from their core mission and ability to achieve positive impact.

Page 37: Exploring Social Finance & Social Enterprise

BACKGROUNDSocial finance is an investment approach which aims to solve social or environmental challenges while generating financial return. This includes investments that range from producing a return of principal capital to offering market-rate or even market-beating financial returns.
