Part 4 of 10 – Mark Zornes, Founder of Winnow Solutions
Research suggests that, relative to commercial entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs stand at a disadvantage in acquiring resources through traditional financial institutions. Yet interest in social entrepreneurship appears to be at an all-time high as social innovations have potential economic and social impacts. Consequently, we see social innovations developing across the public, private and third sectors, presenting investment opportunities in each. The challenge is to apply these innovations inclusively inclusively. The NESTA paper, “In and out of sync” describes the different ways in which social ventures can increase their impact for instance, via campaigns, franchise models and networks, ‘good incubation’ and organisational growth.
