Social entrepreneurship refers to the practice of combining innovation, resourcefulness and opportunity to address critical social and environmental challenges. In application, we identify social problems and apply business acumen to resolve them. Instead of using a venture solely to make a profit, we aim at simultaneously impacting a society and regulating positive change through humanitarian strategies. The success of such an endeavor is, therefore, measured not just on the basis of balance sheets, but on the effect it has had on a community.
Our social entrepreneurship service model focus on transforming systems and practices that are the root causes of poverty, marginalization, environmental deterioration and accompanying loss of human dignity. In so doing, we create innovations by finding a new product, a new service, or a new approach to solve a social problem. In VADO, we work with enterprising young people who we empower through our partnering enterprise academy to provide start-up support, investors and linkages to resources. We believe in the application of entrepreneurial skills to achieve social benefits.
