At the risk of sounding like a nerd, I found myself taken this weekend by an article in Stanford Social Innovation Review on impact measurement.  It is entitled, The Next Frontier in Social Impact Measurement Isn’t Measurement at All”.

As the application deadline approaches for  communityBUILD’s Social Venture Pipeline  (April 15), I am having more calls with ventures asking about whether they’re  a social enterprise.   I find that I know a social enterprise when I see it.  This means that I see that the mission permeates the culture of the enterprise and informs decision-making.  However, it doesn’t overwhelm decision-making. The strongest social entrepreneurs are painfully aware of the balancing act they must master between the demands of running a business in a competitive marketplace and pursuing impact.
