I love markets. Seriously, I love everything about sales and marketing. I think it goes back to the days working in my grandparents store, learning about customers, sales and service.. and also about staying out from underfoot!
What about when it is more than about sustainability but that you do the work of the gospel through the business. That is how I see social enterprise... A vehicle, as powerful or more so than the church in certain contexts, to deliver the gospel in Action.
All too often aid to the poor and marginalized has kept them poor. But what does it look like when we create businesses not to exploit but to share resources?
I have been so excited to be a part of the conversations and communities exploring the re-emergence of Social Enterprise in the West. I hope that you will read some of my thoughts about Social Enterprise in this section.
