Social Enterprises' Analytical Model
The “Social Enterprise Analytical Model” workshop introduces an analytical process specific to social enterprises and is intended for financiers, analysts, coaches, consultants and fund managers who want to have a better understanding of the special features of these enterprises and make informed decisions on financing.
For readers at-large, page 14 offers an aerial view of the entire structure of a model social enterprise in context: operations, market, human resources, financial resources -- and the elements that make up each.
In 2007, the Chantier de l'économie sociale (Montréal) and six partner organizations, with the assistance of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, worked together to tap Québec's expertise in social enterprise for the benefit of the rest of Canada. This project, "Financing for Social Enterprises and the Community Sector: Transferring the Lessons of a Decade of Innovation in Québec" was completed early in 2009. It presents a process through which financial officers, analysts, activists, consultants, and fund managers can make a more thorough understanding of these enterprises the basis for investment decisions.
This is the second resource in a three-part series:
