    11. 11. Some examples of social enterprises we coached
    12. 12. An example of Oksigen Lab coaching: BeeOdiversity BeeOdiversity was founded in 2012 by 4 MBA Students Mission: generate and preserve local biodiversity‘ and food diversity thanks to bees (goal 2014: 10% of Belgian territory) Their feedback on our coaching: ‘We started out with an idea for a social project involving conserving and regenerating populations of bees, which are under threat of annihilation. By the time we had finished the coaching process, we had an economically sustainable business model involving creating and maintaining biodiversity in at least 10 percent of Belgian territory through bees. A conventional business model based on selling a product is not enough to be financially viable and work to achieve an ambitious social objective. In order to devise an alternative business model, we needed to form strong partnerships and be innovative. Oksigen Lab encouraged us to take this innovative direction and steered us towards a model that fits with our ambitions.’ BeeOdiversity team http://www.beeodiversity.Com 12
    13. 13. Key characteristics of social entrepreneurs • • La finalité sociétale au coeur du modèle. Les critères d’évaluation de la performance • • • • • L’intégration des parties prenantes et approche collaborative Réflexion moyen/long terme Bénéfices principalement réaffectés dans la mission Modèle de revenus (parfois) hybride/mixte • • • Output --> impact / people-planet-profit revenus propres + subsides + philantropie + … Capacité à penser autrement, innover, remise en cause du status-quo et des dogmes Persévérance et patience – droit à l’erreur
    14. 14. Evolution Growing interest for social entrepreneurship as win-win solution for today’s socio-economic challenges • Growth expected but scaling up (rather than small-scale replication) will be key •
