Creating a business that marries your mission and making money
My guest today says, “An integrated business model rarely happens accidently – you need to design and deliberately create a business that delivers social and financial returns simultaneously.”
Joining me today is Bessi Graham from Benefit Capital.
Bessi works with Intrapreneurs and Entrepreneurs seeking to use business as a positive agent for change.
Her work allows her to design interventions, business, and financial models that free them from having to choose between being trapped by grant reliance or feeling forced to fit into a profit driven model that undermines their mission and values in the pursuit of program or organisational stability.
On today’s show Bessi is going to share:
- A new sense of clarity about how to “do good” beyond donations or giving pro bono time
- What is possible if you create a business that marries your mission and an ability to make money.
- Comfort that you are not alone!
