  • Create—creativity, opportunity seeking, courageous, bold, risk taking-this is looking at old problems in new ways, finding new solutions. This is at the heart of the entrepreneurial mindset.

  • IBM identifies the next generation of consumer as those in developing countries; tailoring its business in developing markets. Consider its first research Lab, recently founded, focusing on issues of sustainable urbanization, water management, etc. Recasting need as opportunity.
  • IBM,Terracycle, Frog – identified need, made it an opportunity. Saw the developing world as developing markets, saw an opportunity to good and do well. Social and market realities. Differing definition and dynamics of need.

  • I’ve been here for five months, and I can tell you that Kosovo doesn’t need another coffee shop—service is a saturated market, so lets reexamine needs and build sustainable models to address them.
  • Opportunity to do things right from the outset—new norm entrepreneurship. Part 2: Marketing perspective: It is widely recognized that, even value-conscious consumers in the developing world will prioritize brands that are perceived as creating social good. This is becoming institutionalized in sourcing and supply chain.

  • Social Entrepreneurship Defined • A Textbook (if unsatisfying) Definition • Functional Definition
  • Martin and Osberg define social entrepreneurship as having the following three components: 1. Identifying a stable but inherently unjust equilibrium that causes the exclusion, marginalization, or suffering of a segment of humanity that lacks the financial means or political clout to achieve any transformative benefit on its own; 2. Identifying an opportunity in this unjust equilibrium, developing a social value proposition, and bringing to bear inspiration, creativity, direct action, courage, and fortitude, thereby challenging the stable state’s hegemony; and 3. Forging a new, stable equilibrium that releases trapped potential or alleviates the suffering of the targeted group, and through imitation and the creation of a stable ecosystem around the new equilibrium ensuring a better future for the targeted group and even society at large.
