Around Europe there is an increasing demand for social impact at scale, from funders, from intermediaires and from social enterprises themselves. But how to asses a social enterprises’ readiness to scale?
We’ve developed some questions for SESOs that will help you engage in a readiness conversation, especially focused on internationalisation. For COPSE members, this is also a great way of assessing if it is worth engaging with the COPSE connector service.
This form has been designed to help you dialogue with a social enterprise willing to engage in transnational scale-up. The questions are designed to tease out any issues but also to provide the key information the COPSE team needs to find relevant partners in destination countries.
These KPIS are designed to capture the value created by the SESO (Social Enterprise Support Organisation) and the impact it has on its beneficiary; the SE (Social Enterprise). It it NOT designed to capture the impact created by the SE. The detail gathered will be aggregated for all COPSE members. Please refer to the COPSE survey for a full list of question you can use to survey impact of your SEs. NB: these KPIs are work in progress and might evolve over time. Any comments are welcome, email: info [at] copse.eu or lw [at] oksigenlab.eu
The tool enables SESOs to facilitate one-hour sessions based around a specific theme for organisations to source tips, solutions, or avenues to explore in relation to a particular burning issue that they are having.
