Social Enterprises

Here's a fascinating news story on "social enterprises" from BBC Radio 4's programme, In Business. Though the organization I founded, BC Digital Divide, can't yet be defined as a formal social enterprise, we do try to run things in a very efficient, business-like way.

I've long pondered the idea of turning BCDD into an actual social enterprise. This would see it transitioning into a for profit company, albeit one that still gave away computers for free to those who couldn't afford to buy them. But I just have too many other things on the go these days to make this transition. One day though, one day . . . !
