Social Enterprise, it uses business methods to solve problems in society and despite the seriousness, many are thriving with as many reporting growth last year as conventional businesses in the world.
Social enterprise is a world trend. Social enterprises are a kind of social innovation, and effectively solve social or environmental problems via a sustainable business model. The major purpose of social enterprise is to pursue public interest and solve social problems. It doesn’t rely on government grants or donations from the private sector. The development of social enterprise in Taiwan is still in the early stages but is getting wide attention. Creating a suitable social business development environment requires public, enterprise, and government to work together. Only in this way we can encourage social enterprise in continuous innovation and steady growth.
A Social Enterprise Award, open to Taiwan-based social enterprises (company limited or company limited by shares) and under the banner of the British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei Business Awards, will provide a great platform to celebrate and share the achievements and learning from organisations in this important area. This will not only leverage KPMG’s professional experience in audit, finance, tax and advisory service, but also involve the professional
consulting and incubation program via connecting our clients’ network. It can create more business opportunities to carry out the cooperation between social enterprises, profit-organizations and potential investors.
We suggest that submissions can be made in the form of a team submission, but all have to be made under the name of a specific company.
