Whether to reach new markets, follow through on sustainability commitments, or develop and retain talent, a growing number of companies are turning to “social innovation” - looking to develop profitable new products, services and/or business models that also create value for society.

With Barclays, Pearson and Cemex, Business Fights Poverty is launching a new Challenge that will help to ensure that employees have the know-how they need to bring their social innovation ideas to fruition. The Know-How for Social Innovation Challenge will unfold in two phases:

In Phase I, we will engage employees from Barclays, Cemex, and Pearson and members of the Business Fights Poverty community to understand what skills employees need most to transform their ideas into positive results for their companies and for society.

In Phase II, we will work with expert partners to develop a series of skills-focused webinars and tip sheets that intrapreneurial employees – who are often engaging in social innovation on top of their day jobs – can use to come up to speed.

Have you developed a profitable new product, service, or business model with social impact - or would you like to?
