Oak Tree PressMarch 2003
This is a planning tool to help individuals, project organisations, or groups of social entrepreneurs to achieve both the best of the world of business and the best of the world of community gain. The authors take the view that, although commercial enterprises are in business for profit while social enterprises are in business to achieve community gain, sound business principles apply to both.
