Understanding and inventing business models for social change
Tremendous amount of work is being undertaken in understanding business models in the corporate world. At the same time to invent new ones. Invention comes from understanding what’s currently out there.
The question for me is “what about the social sector?”. Where are places where we know the business models of the top organisations in this space? I am not talking of “funding models” here. How they raise revenue? That is only part of the business model. How do they create value? How do they create change? What has worked? Are they specific delivery mechanisms that can work in this space?
A dream for me would be to document the business models of various organisations all over the world and understand them. Then describe them and then we can start inventing new ones.
