In the most recent issue of Beyond Profit’s online newsletter Radar, the issue of the importance of scale is posed. I enjoyed the quick read especially with the willingness to engage corporations in achieving true scale. One of my complaints regarding the concept of scale in social entrepreneurship is the fact that we often have a lower standard for scale with regard to social enterprises than we do for regular startups. What constitutes a success for Twitter is likely different to that of a social enterprise.
By acknowledging the need to partner with actual MNCs, the post understands that true scale must operate on a corporate scale. For that I support Beyond Profit’s stance.
I look forward to your comments.
