recent years the world has witnessed a trend whereby corporations have
moved from ad hoc sponsorship arrangements with non-governmental
organisations towards coherent community engagement programmes. More
recently, there has been an increasing number of strategic, long-term
sustainable partnerships. Entrepreneurs are looking to create profit
not only at the financial level but also at the social level.
A Social Venture is a
growing, profitable and so sustainable business, with ambition that is
not only driven by revenue and profit maximisation but also by its
social good. The Social Venture Forum was started as the socialventureforum.com with the objective to inform, inspire and encourage acting in favor of harmonious development through Social Ventures in China.
