It's never to early to start measuring and communicating your social impact in your social enterprise. In fact I encourage you to do it from day one. In doing so you will know whether you're delivering what you aimed to do, you can start communicating what impact you're having , and you'll be in a stronger position in 6-12 months time when you come to look back on what's been delivered, what you’ve achieved and it will be much easier to collate in to a report.
Learning from other people’s mistakes can avoid you making them and save you time (and money)! So in this blog I share 5 common mistakes I see social entrepreneurs (new and emerging) making all the time. I share these with you so you can make some changes to how you run your enterprise and speed up your growth and development.
…you’re not the only one. It makes sense to look around and see how other social enterprises are measuring their impact before you start writing your own. But the reality is there’s not that many social enterprises who measure their social impact (yet) and even those who do aren’t always great at sharing the evidence on their website.
