Social Business Earth - Switzerland
Social business Earth: Tackling Society’s Urgent Issues through Social Business.
Our goal is to create sustainable social businesses to solve social and environmental challenges across the world.
The most relevant issues:
- 2/3 of the word population still lives on $1 or $2 a day in abject poverty
- There is a huge gap between the social entrepreneurs and the funding community
- A lack of infrastructure to support social business ideas
- Development funds are often mishandled and invested in projects that are not sustainable
- Social entrepreneurs need coaching and training to implement their social venture
Our proposed solutions:
- Identify new social businesses and support them through training, capacity building and mentoring.
- Create partnerships with private companies, NGOs, foundations, government entities and philanthropists to create a Social Business Fund. The Fund will allow to reutilize the initial investment and reinvest it in another social business.
- Select the most viable social businesses with high impact and foster their implementation.
- Consulting and advisory services
Some socio-economic issues we focus on:
- Poverty eradication
- Access to education
- Environmental urgency
- Access to healthcare
- Integration of marginalized communities
- Access to funds and financial services for social entrepreneurs
With our projects we have already managed to create 600 jobs and served 300,000 customers and patients with an impact on 1.2 M people.
Creation of Social Businesses through SBE:
As social business entrepreneurs we leverage any investment to create positive change with dignity and through sustainable economic models. We believe that people who are dedicated to social justice should know where their social investments go, that is why our social business model ensures transparency and allows you to choose from a list of several projects giving you the chance to select which one you wish to support.
Our promises to you:
When you become a Social Business Investor – at any financial level – we make this promise to you: 100% of the money you invested in Social Business Earth will go where you want it to. We will keep you updated and inform you on the progress and social impact of the social business you funded. You will receive our annual reports if you request them.
Our investment strategy:
Every day we hear of new innovative non-profits and social enterprises that claim to have the smartest technology, the coolest ideas and the best strategies to solve social problems. Unfortunately, not every effort brings equal results. In times when financial resources are scarce, we need to be extra careful and invest funds in projects that have the potential to generate large-scale and lasting solutions to the world’s biggest problems. At Social Business Earth we identify and support those initiatives that really do have the potential to change the world and we are grateful to you for selecting us to improve the lives of those who need it most.
