Trust is an essential quality in building partnerships, especially when it comes to doing business for good. Sharing a proposal for #socent development with more than one agency of government we'd discover that we needed to pay to be part of it. http://www.p-ced.com/1/node/521

When academics and business leaders speak of a new form of #capitalism they often emphasise the need for a new model where business contibutes to society more than it extracts from it. The Pollinators vs the Predators. Increasingly it becomes hard to distinguish as predators don new clothes, to talk the walk. http://www.p-ced.com/1/node/503 #purpose #Unilever #Virgin #Nesta

You won't hear a lot about socialism or social enterprise at Davos. Or will you?

There are two types of people who decide to become entrepreneurs, some who join for the promise of wealth or power and others who are more interested in creating something of their own and watching it grow.
A few years into this profession, each and every entrepreneur will face these 5 truths at some point and learn from them

The term #wetiko is gaining traction as meme for extractive #capitalism based on #greed. There is however another mindset, that of people-centered business:

"Dealing with #poverty is nothing new. The question became ‘how does poverty still exist in a world with sufficient resources for a decent quality of life for everyone?’ The answer was that we have yet to develop any economic system capable redistributing finite resources in a way that everyone has at minimum enough for a decent life: food, decent housing, transportation, clothing, health care, and education. The problem has not been lack of resources, but adequate distribution of resources. #Capitalism is the most powerful economic engine ever devised, yet it came up short with its classical, inherent profit-motive as being presumed to be the driving force. Under that presumption, all is good in the name of profit became the prevailing winds of international economies — thereby giving carte blanche to the notion that greed is good because it is what has driven capitalism. The 1996 paper merely took exception with the assumption that personal profit, greed, and the desire to amass as much money and property on a personal level as possible are inherent and therefore necessary aspects of any capitalist endeavour. While it is in fact very normal for that to be the case, it simply does not follow that it must be the case."

Without hesitation, I would say, by being the change you wish to see in the world. Even Henry Ford, as hard nosed a capitalist as he was, said "you can't build a reputation on what you are going to do". Someone will always try to build a reputation on what others have done.

Build the company that you wouldn't sell 
At the age of 23, Zach sold his company Vimeo. But as soon as he sold his company, he wanted nothing more than to have those wings again. He missed it. He realised he wanted to keep flying.

After the Babele and Bridging The Gap workshop on turning an NGO idea into a valid social business model, another interesting project emerged: CINCI LEI aims to work with local young homeless to build a day center to empower and educate them. Have a look and help them better build this idea into a self sustainable project.

There's a voluntary code of practice for #socent in Scotland which highlights the distance between the support network and the practioner.  Our founder died trying to leverage investment  to help #children abused in care. http://www.p-ced.com/1/node/453
