At Solve Innovation Future, we know that many founders start companies because they want to make our world a better place, yet the system of entrepreneurship today is still largely driven and built for high growth companies and fast profit generation. We recognize that as for-profit entrepreneurs seek to focus on social and environmental impact, they need to reflect on key questions to better align and balance profit and purpose
We developed our For-Purpose Entrepreneurship (FPE) concept to be a resource for Founders who want to build companies that align internal systems to accelerate impact. We encourage Founders to consider seven concepts to build companies for maximum internal and external impact. While a founder can explore any of these components independently, there is synergy in using a holistic approach to company building.
This is a guide for entrepreneurs looking to build purposeful, profitable entities. Explore the following resources to help navigate the intersection of purpose and profit:
FPE Considerations and Key Questions - A simple visual guide to understanding key elements of building a purposeful business.
Podcast Series - A podcast focused on FPE case studies and business models for social enterprises.
Resource Library - Research offering guidance and strategies for building and growing companies, while aligning strategy and purpose.
