Explain your idea in details:

Although social entrepreneurship has been increasingly gaining momentum, determining the actual size of the social capital market is challenging. Solving the worlds problems can get expensive and it is important to have resources and connections that you can rely on throughout the life of your social efforts. Social entrepreneurship is an exciting field that is discovering new ways of making our world a better place every year. Now more than ever we are finally reaching new levels where public interest, profitability, funding sources, and most importantly, impact seamlessly align. With that being said, welcome to Pioneer Connect, a consulting enterprise that specializes in financial management and the public relations of social entrepreneurial connections. Our business model is unique because we are targeting two unique populations. The first group will contain social innovators that have sustainable and impactful business models. These entrepreneurs have the avenues to create meaningful social impact, but do not have the revenues to do so. How can such an innovative and sustainable field rely on such an unsustainable strategy to gain initial funding? The second group we are targeting contains corporations with Corporate Social Responsibility and corporations in need of positive public relations. Many Corporations have sparked scandal that has damaged their image causing them to lose revenue and tarnish their reputation. These corporations have the financial means to make an impact; however they do not have the proper channels to funnel their money into a sustainable and meaningful venture. Historically, funds from individual donors, personal relationships, and large foundations provided the means to fund social ventures. The geographic locations of these issues are occurring nationally. We plan to partner corporations and social ventures that not only align in their missions, but in their locations. How is it that an entity that has figured out how

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Our solution to financing someone who just created a sustainable business, is to connect social entrepreneurs to corporations fulfilling CSR or in need of creating positive publicity. We are creating a socially responsible consulting firm that works in the mutual interest of social entrepreneurs and Idea Number: 2 Member Type: Undergraduate Chapter or School: Florida State University Track: Mid-stage (Big ideas with a business plan) Team Fiorella Riccobono corporations alike. We are going to bridge the gap between sustainable and impactful businesses who struggle financially to companies who have the means to make said impact but do not know where to invest their CSR funds. The scale of these issues will be determined on a case-by-case assessment of how much financial aid a social enterprise needs and how much money a corporation is willing to invest. An example of a solution stemming from the unique relationship between social enterprises and corporations includes the hypothetical impact that our firm would have made on the BP company during the 2010 oil spill crisis. Even today, the media and the rest of the world look back on this crisis, which has hit BP with labels of ignorance and carelessness in regards to the environment. Had BP come to our firm, we would have been able to pair them with a social enterprise that strives to better the environment, and just needs funding to jumpstart their mission. Particularly the Gulf Coast, which was the body of water heavily affected by the oil spill. In summation, organizations would have received a benefit from our services, in which BP would receive better press for working with this social enterprise, and the social enterprise would have received ample funding for their high-impact projects. In order to minimize risk and ensure satisfactory

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Our definition of success is being able to see systemic change within the communities we create partnerships. We will measure the success by tracking how many partnerships we have created and then tracking their progress. We will also track our success by how many clients we are taking on because it proves that we are changing the norm and mentality of how corporate social responsibility is measured. Our revenue will help us hire high performers in the field and keep our organization relevant. We will measure our success annually by evaluating the norms changing and systemic change of the clients we have taken on. We will ask for a report of their success before and after they became part of pioneer connect and quantify the data to measure change and projected change. The percentage will vary by project, however we expect each social enterprise to have at least 45% growth within the first year and we expect our corporations revenues to increase by 2% by our positive public relations campaigns. In the specific cities these things are occurring in, we will measure how the city is affected by the statistic before and after these social enterprises received the money to be more impactful. Our niche enterprise would be classified into the hybrid industry, as we work with both non-profits and for-profit organizations. As stated in Brooks Chapter 4, it is imperative to identify and describe why our enterprise is such an authentic opportunity. With our enterprise being classified in a niche industry, our competition is vastly reduced and we are able to stand out to bigger companies that we would like to work with in future endeavors. As we are starting out, it is more than likely that we will have an abundance of non-profit organizations working with us,

Hello fellow passenger,

You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.

We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.

Thanks once again and all the best for the future

Best wishes for your success and thank you so much for your support on my project.

August 31, 2017 20:26

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

Hello,
Being a part of India's well-known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.

But before it's implementation, you need to do a "premortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.

Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.

Regards,
Team GreenSpace.

Hello,
I invite you kindly to comment my idea Path To Knowledge. I would be glad to hear your advice. I have written this message after I commented almost all ideas and projects and probably yours too. I am deeply sorry if this message bothered you, but everyone on this platform wants to go to the finals with his/her idea and makes all it is possible to get there. Maybe not all the actions are fair. Some participants copies the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.
Kindest regards,

I think your idea is great and you will appear on the market at the right time. There is an important demand for counseling and you have identified this need. But you have to get visibility to have important clients. How do you want to do it?
