Social Enterprises

Social Enterprises apply market based strategies to achieve positive social outcomes whilst still meeting their financial targets. A key aspect of this model that OHO emphasizes is the transition from the ‘just-for-profit’ approach of shareholder driven businesses, to the ‘profit-for-purpose’ approach by businesses that are accountable to their broader stakeholders, including the community at large. Truly ‘mission driven corporations’, Flexible Purpose Corporations, Bcorps and some co-operatives are all examples of business that ‘do well by doing good’.
