"Scaling and Measuring Social Impact" Workshop

A workshop on Scaling and Measuring Social Impact will be held on Monday, April 20, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m., at Landrum Bolling Center - Room 124. This session addresses two of the essential elements defining social business: the ability and option to scale and the need to measure impact. How much social value can your business create? Are you scaling deep, scaling up, or scaling out? Who are your stakeholders? How are you evaluating ROA and SROI? Addressing these elements early can significantly increase the impact of your social business and should be looked at as you create your business plan.
