1. Trade-off Analysis/700 points Due: No Later than midnight on Sunday July 24th.
We have now learned that there are specific trade-offs inherent in most social enterprises – between maximizing social impact and maximizing financial returns. For this assignment, you will find two non-profit social enterprises anywhere in the world (ones that haven’t been discussed in class or in the readings). You will submit a ‘one-pager’ for each enterprise.
NOTE THAT IN ORDER FOR AN ORGANIZATION OR PROGRAM TO QUALIFY AS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT, IT MUST BE:
(i) A NON-PROFIT
(ii) WITH A MISSION-BASED EARNED INCOME STREAM
(iii) NOT TOTALLY RELIANT ON DONATIONS. NOTE THAT THIS REVENUE STREAM MUST REPRESENT A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE OVERALL ORGANIZATIONAL BUDGET.
PLEASE TRIPLE CHECK THAT YOUR ORGANIZATION MEETS ALL THREE OF THESE REQUIREMENTS. IF YOUR PAPER IS TURNED IN AND THE ORGANIZATION DOES NOT QUALIFY AS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE BASED ON THE DEFINITION ABOVE, YOU WILL GET NO CREDIT FOR THAT WRITE-UP. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
Each one-pager (350 points each) should include two sections:
A – A brief description of the enterprise and the social problem it is designed to address (100 points)
B – Brief descriptions of two trade-offs that you believe the enterprise must be facing between maximizing social impact and and maximizing financial returns. (125 points for each trade-off)
This will not be easy to confine to one-page each (12 pt Times New Roman or a similar font, with 1” margins, and 1.5-spaced). Feel free to use bullet points. Also be sure to note the grading point split between each section above and allocate space and thought accordingly.
