Why Invest in Social Enterprise?

Investment in social enterprise is philanthropy at its highest value by funding sustainable businesses focusing on alleviating social ailments. Investors receive two sets of returns: financial return, expected to be modest but reasonable—and social impact, measured as alleviation of social problems like chronic unemployment of disadvantaged individuals, food insecurity, and access to healthcare.
