Four Patterns for Building a Social Enterprise

Purppl is testing the assumption that sustainable business models can add predictable revenue into community driven social enterprises.

We believe this will help organizations implement long term solutions to our communities’ toughest challenges. It’s a test. But it’s starting to work. We are already seeing positive social and business outcomes,

Some clear patterns are emerging…listen, all the time, so you know what to build. Commit to your purpose and know your purpose because building a business is hard.

And partners, both internal and external will help you survive as well as scale your impact.

Our work, right now, is a humbling journey of patient urgency.
