We are excited by, support and seek to partner with Social Enterprise by enabling and supporting leaders that want to do good in the world and for the world (Stewardship). At Next, we define Social Enterprise as:
“An organization that applies commercial and entrepreneurial strategies to maximize improvements in the financial, social, physical, mental, and environmental well-being of the communities they serve. Mission is at the centre of the enterprise, with Margin (income generation) playing an important supporting role.
A social enterprise's main purpose is to promote, encourage, and make positive social change.
A successful social enterprise is one that skillfully balances the tension between driving the social mission of their organization while maximizing the productivity of their business to ensure sustainability.”
