The market for social enterprise remains under-exploited, and a significant impact gap sits at the intersection of corporate strategy, alpha-seeking capital providers, and emergent social ventures.
EC recognizes that economic and social value creation are co-dependent—commercially viable social enterprise must mitigate risk and sustain economic success for all stakeholders: investors, employees, consumers, partners, and government. By facilitating commercial engagement directly with underserved and excluded constituencies (including BoP communities), EC helps unleash the power of entrepreneurship, while addressing real development needs at scale. Through alignment of the mission and total return objectives of corporates, policy makers/regulators, investor capital and social value enterprises, EC identifies targeted opportunities and new growth markets that drive significant ROI across all intended impact objectives.
Opportunities for the underserved to generate income and increase welfare are greatly enhanced when they are more informed, better connected, and engaged market participants.
 BOP = “Base of the Pyramid,” or approximately 2.9 Billion global poor living at $2/day or less
