Emanuele Musa is preparing a webinar for Catalyst 2030, and here is the official invite to join the session 🙂The topic? The love story between corporates and social ventures!When? May 9th > 10:30 – 11:30 am CET.Where? Online. Link to the event: catalysingchangeweek.catalyst2030.net/events/the-love-story-between-corporates-and-social-ventures/What are we going to talk about?I spent the past 8 years building social innovation ecosystems, and I am happy to finally witness corporates and public institutions rushing to achieve ESGs: Environmental and Social goals.Check this out:- Even the US government shifted their transition to ESGs (KPMG)advisory.kpmg.us/articles/2021/esg-an-immediate-priority.html- How ESGs create value for corporates (McKinsey)www.mckinsey.com/~/media/McKinsey/Business%20Functions/Strategy%20and%20Corporate%20Finance/Our%2...Even traditional sectors and companies that are historically difficult to change are asking themselves how to truly create and measure impact + engage all the employees in the process.These corporates have realized that in order to achieve the ESG, the internal human resources will never be enough. They must collaborate with a completely different set of organizations, partners, and suppliers, that are aligned with the targeted SDGs. More evidence here:- How Social Enterprises Can Help Corporations Meet Their ESG Goals (Harvard Business Review)hbr.org/sponsored/2022/01/how-social-enterprises-can-help-corporations-meet-their-esg-goals- The Road to Corporate Sustainability is Through Social Entrepreneurshipwww.resonanceglobal.com/hubfs/Guides/Catalyst%202030%20-%20Catalysing%20Collaboration/Resonance_C...On the other end, there is a myriad of seed-stage impact ventures that are struggling to get to the next level of company development (growth/series A).And so, during this webinar, we will bring together these two worlds: explain which corporates are joining forces with social ventures (from tech giants to breweries) and how such collaborations are accelerating the achievement of ESGs.>> In other words, social ventures, through their products and services, foster impact creation for corporates customers. <<Instead of aiming for the individual impact, corporate and social ventures together, can achieve collective impact: the ultimate cure to all our societal problems.More on this topic in this amazing Stanford article :ssir.org/articles/entry/collective_impactSo, do you join me? 🙂 ...

Getting Ready to Change

"To the eyes of a child, the world is huge… it looks limitless, full of diversity and of differences that set us apart. With time, we learn that the world has its limits… we learn that we are not that different, as we all strive for the same goals: health, happiness,...

Crowdsourcing social innovation: Towards a more collaborative & conscious capitalism

Crowdsourcing social innovation: Towards a more collaborative & conscious capitalism

The paradox of a global economy increasingly unified, and a global society increasingly divided is the most dangerous threat that weighs on the planet, because it makes difficult if not impossible, the cooperation necessary to solve the other problems. We need a bottom up, collaborative and open sourced approach, where people can actively participate in the development, implementation and replication of social good projects. I believe such ecosystem has the potential to accelerate the paradigm shift towards a more sustainable capitalism.
