On 31 May at 17.30, you are warmly invited to a great seminar on measuring social impact. In the context of social entrepreneurship, we’ll be looking into why and how to measure social outputs & outcomes, and how to value impact in monetary terms.
We will explore various methods for measuring social impact including, Social Return of Investment (SROI), a method applied for measuring social and environmental values currently not reflected in conventional financial calculations, and Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI), a tool used to measure poverty levels of groups/individuals and changes in poverty levels over time.
This seminar will support you in developing a deeper understanding of the impact your work has on the society and the environment, and therefore allow you to more effectively communicate the beneficial value of your work to clientele, investors, entrepreneurs, governments, public servants, and public at large.
The event will feature an array of experts specializing in various methods of measuring social impact, as well as investor perspectives with real case examples.
In addition, we will have 6 brilliant entrepreneurs, who are graduating from the SE Outreach Accelerator Program, pitch their startup ideas. In the last two months, each of the 6 entrepreneurs brought in a different perspective and approach into the work of poverty reduction while addressing social or environmental challenges in emerging markets and taking large steps towards reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
We will start and end with an opportunity to mingle and network! We look forward to having you, and celebrating the Graduates of the 2012 SE Outreach Accelerator!
The event will be held in English.
