We therefore organised our event “Let’s Go Social” which took place the 15th of September. Around 120 people from a wide range of organisations attended the event to celebrate Sinzer’s 2nd anniversary with us.

Hoe zet je als social enterprise impactmeting strategisch in?

Posted by Emma Verheijke on 24 June 2016

De Social Enterprise monitor 2016 laat zien dat het goed gaat met de Social Enterprise sector: de sector groeit, is minder afhankelijk van subsidies en heeft minder moeite dan voorgaande jaren om financiering aan te trekken. Daarnaast geeft 60% van de ondervraagden in de monitor aan dat zij op enige wijze maatschappelijke impact meten, bijna 10% meer dan in 2015. Goed nieuws, want om je onderneming te laten groeien is een goed begrip van je maatschappelijke waardecreatie cruciaal. De uitdaging voor veel van deze sociaal ondernemingen blijft echter: hoe kun je met beperkte middelen maatschappelijke impactmeting zo inzetten dat dit je zowel stuurinformatie oplevert, als informatie om verantwoording af te leggen aan investeerders, potentiele investeerders aan te trekken en klanten aan je te binden. Waar leg je de focus?

How can corporates integrate social impact in their core business?

Posted by Marlon van Dijk on 30 October 2015

The connection between business and society is a popular topic. The social and environmental issues we face on a global level are becoming so significant that there are plenty of business opportunities in contributing to solving them.

Bridging the reality gap: how to get from theory to practical impact measurement

Posted by Emma Verheijke on 22 October 2015

Last week’s “critical mass” event in London – organised by Social Value International and Good Deals collaboratively– brought together a unique blend of social entrepreneurs, impact investors, public servants, government officials and everyone “in between” to discuss how social value can be created, leveraged and be accounted for. Or rather: how critical mass – enough supporters and practitioners to sustain a movement - can be achieved for social value and social value creation.
