Social entrepreneurship business plan model: how to make an investment presentation for socially innovative startup business

You could even use this as the slide order–using one to three slides on each component. Ideally as few as possible to communicate your idea in an emotionally compelling way.

1. Mission
2. Big Idea
3. Impact
4. Behavioral Mapping (kind of reverse engineering the process in some ways. its certainly design thinking in action)
5. Interventions
6. Route to Scale
7. Impact Model

Here is the explanation of the 13 point (social innovation/social entrepreneurship/social business/business plan/business model-thingy) checklist from their website which is basically a business plan model of sorts. Its called Design Lasting Impact Goes to Scale.

Here is an unpacking of the 4 core components (link)

1. Does the project have measurable and proven impacts?
2. Are the impacts cost-effective?
3. Will the impacts be sustained?
4. Can the project be replicated and taken to scale?

This 4 part model was featured in the MIT Journal Innovations theme issue for Summer 2011 (the other info for the article is: Vol. 6, No. 3, Pages 179-184)

PS. I recommended printing this out….but also the worksheet, which is a blank version of the former. At a minimum, this is worth bookmarking and starring for thinking reflectively about impact. Kevin Starr calls their model, “do-able but rigourous.”

Incidentally, here is a list of the organization that the Mulago Foundation funds. Its a whose who of high impact organizations.

You can read more articles by Kevin Star at the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) here or you can read more of Mulago’s publications and thought leadership here (at their website under the Ideas tab).
