Innovations in Corporate Social Impact: Solving Business Challenges with Social Entrepreneurship

Overview

Companies of all types are taking a fresh look at the broader impact of their work- how their employees, customers, and their communities are impacted by what and how they produce.  While increasingly desirable for leaders to make sure their company has a positive societal impact, it is not often clear how that is done at scale, especially in a way that supports the business goals and financial targets.  Enter social entrepreneurship.

 

One of the most rapidly growing areas within the field of entrepreneurship is that of for-profit social entrepreneurship- innovative, for-profit businesses designed to simultaneously drive a social or environmental impact.  The Bay Area is fortunate to be home to the largest concentration of these for-profit social impact startups, many of which are already collaborating with larger traditional companies who are their customers, suppliers, and go-to-market partners.

 

ONE WORLD’s third Innovations in Corporate Social Impact program will focus on how organizations are solving their business challenges by leveraging social enterprise start-ups.  

 

The main themes of the program include:

  • Attracting and retaining talent - How are organizations such as Box and Cooley leveraging social enterprises to create a unique employee value proposition, and increase employee engagement?

 

  • Increasing revenue - How are organizations such as Cisco and Pearson utilizing entrepreneurship to drive into new markets?

 

  • Reducing costs - Which start-ups, such as Headspace and Meru Health, are helping to reduce corporate healthcare costs while simultaneously increasing worker productivity?   

 

What’s Unique

  • Innovative Start-ups - The program will provide exposure to many of the Bay Area top startups helping mid to enterprise size organizations address core business challenges.

 

  • Participants - Attendees from a variety of corporate functions, including executive office, product and service line leaders, Finance, Marketing & Sales, HR and Operations.

 

  • Focus - The program is focused on corporate initiatives where both financial and social goals are achieved simultaneously

 

  • Local - Part of the goal is to foster stronger connections among the local Bay Area ecosystem of professionals in companies
