For Startups & SMEs
Find Your Purpose!
Companies of any scale or size can have a positive impact, but without focus and smart planning that impact can be difficult to realise. That’s why our bespoke package for small businesses and startups is designed to quickly identify a social “purpose” that’s a great fit with your company’s mission and that can create real shared value – for society, for business, for good. We call this “doing one thing”.
The "do one thing" package is a smart, two-week immersion that uses a three-step process and a simple, clear, outcomes-focused approach. It’s perfect for forward-thinking businesses who want to start right from the very beginning and create increased impact as they grow.
Working with a small group of your key team members and stakeholders – management, employees, clients, and whoever you think is important in the process – we undertake a half-day workshop to explore and identify key areas where your business can make an impact. In the session we’ll cover your areas of operations, human and community impact, possible risks and, most importantly, your mission and beliefs. By the end of the session we will have identified two to three potential impact areas.
Taking the potential impact areas we’ll apply our expertise in corporate responsibility and social development to create a range of strategically smart ideas that your business could take forward as socially responsible initiatives. Understanding the limitations, financial and otherwise, on startups and SMEs, we'll focus on creating an impact strategy appropriate to the size of your business that can scale over time. The strategy will combine innovative, smart ideas with pragmatic implementation and partner identification.
Once your team is in agreement on the strategy we take it to the next level and create a roadmap for you to implement the concept yourselves or with a partner. We’ll provide you an action plan with targets and milestones and a starter pack of advice and templates to ensure that your impact strategy creates a measurable difference on ground. We can even check in with you for regular review sessions.
