What is this LIVE Social Enterprise Business Case Competition?
As businesses operating in the marketplace, social enterprises face the same issues that every business deals with: financing, production systems, customer service, marketing, and human resources, etc. Social Enterprise Heroes is designed to assist social enterprises address their most critical business challenge or opportunity by awarding financial support or providing in-kind consulting services.
In the realm of Social Enterprise Heroes, we call their business challenge “Kryptonite”. The social enterprise might be in need of strengthening and improving their business operational systems, enhancing their marketing strategy and brand, exploring new products or services, or improving their financial reporting and analysis. One or a combination of donated consulting hours, grant funds, and other supports will be bestowed upon each presenter. In the realm of social enterprise heroes, we have coined these rewards “Superpowers”.
