写得很具体:

What is a Social Entrepreneur?

A social entrepreneur is a different kind of social leader who:

  • Identifies and applies practical solutions to social problems by combining innovation, resourcefulness and opportunity.
  • Innovates by finding a new product, a new service, or a new approach to a social problem
  • Focuses first and foremost on social value creation and in that spirit, is willing to share openly the innovations and insights of the initiative with a view to its wider replication
  • Doesn’t wait to secure the resources before undertaking the catalytic innovation
  • Is fully accountable to the constituencies s/he serves
  • Resists being trapped by the constraints of ideology or discipline
  • Continuously refines and adapts approach in response to feedback
  • Has a vision, but also a well-thought out roadmap as to how to attain the goal

What is Social Entrepreneurship?

  • Describes an approach to a social issue. It is not a field of discipline that can be learned in academia.
  • An approach that cuts across disciplines (medicine, engineering, law, education, investment banking, agronomy, environment, etc.) and is not confined to sectors (health, transportation, finance, labor, trade, and the like).
  • More related to leadership than to management

写得很具体,简单来说,社会企业家是关于:

  • 实效
  • 创新
  • 开放
  • 行动力
  • 承诺
  • 跳出框架
  • 持续改善
  • 关注"如何做"(而非空有理想)

什么是社会企业家精神?

  • 关注实现的方法而非理论
  • 跨域创新的能力
  • 领导而非管理

刚刚在Nextbillion网站上看到这篇文章《Book Review: Paul Polak’s Out of Poverty》,下面这句话值得记录:

One must "go to where the action is" and "talk to the people who have the problem and listen to what they say," while also pursuing only approaches that "can reach at least a million people and make their lives measurably better."

说得多好呀,要实干,真正地倾听,但也要有雄心,要规模。一个项目,如果不能(也没有考虑过)影响到百万甚至千万以上的人群,基本上还属于一群人自娱自乐的阶段。

一百万,也是我们考虑项目的门槛。一百万学生在中国农村(考虑到我们服务的主要是村小和乡完小),大概是5000-10000所学校的规模。服务一百所学校跟服务一万所是完全不同的两个概念,前者只需一到两名全职就足够,而后者需要的是系统、流程和文化,两者是完全不同的定位、模式和资源配置。

能创造出一种模式,为更广大的人群服务,是一件很好玩的事情。
