Sustainability should be a top priority for social enterprises — what do you think?

Daniella Genas

We’re always keen to hear the lessons that young entrepreneurs have learnt at first-hand — especially where they may say something about changing attitudes in the social enterprise sector.

Well, today we have a guest piece kindly written by Daniella Genas, a serial entrepreneur and social entrepreneur.

If you are unable to generate revenue for your business then you are just social without the enterprise — Daniella Genas

While Daniella acknowledges that not all social enterprises can generate revenue at a level that enables them to become financially sustainable, she also thinks that many can — except for the fact that they don’t make achieving sustainability a big enough priority.

Read her piece and see what you think.

We thank Daniella for making this contribution.
