Social Enterprise Acumen CIC is an inspiration to the communities within which it works by developing and delivering programmes to create an enterprising culture.
It achieves this by:
- Proactively encouraging enterprising thinking
- Acting as a positive agent of change
- Being a conduit for creative solutions
In doing this it helps to create a community culture in which everything is possible, and the latent aspirations of community members are realised.
Social Enterprise Acumen supports social entrepreneurs and new and growing social enterprises.
It is also an innovation and incubation unit for new ideas that meet a social or environmental need with a business solution and has created a bespoke model of support to test and roll out new social enterprises.
What is Social Enterprise?
UK Government: DTI (2002) definition
‘a social enterprise is a business with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners’
