|Replication and Scaling for Impact: What are the options? Does Social Franchising have a competitive advantage?
In this first webinar of the Social Sector Franchise Initiative 2018 Webinar series we will explore a variety of issues and questions about scaling social enterprises. There is an urgent need to scale promising social enterprises that can meet vital human needs. But are we making headway in identifying the most effective pathways to scale? What do we know about the various options for scaling social enterprises, in terms of their relative abilities to reach significant numbers of customers while holding true to their social mission? Why do many social enterprises fail to scale? What are the roles of industry facilitators and service providers in enabling scale? We often assume scaling equals replication—what are other routes to scale?
Bill Maddocks the webinar moderator will explore these issues and more with our four guests who represent a wide range of experience in scaling and replicating social enterprises around the world.
