Shared Value Initiative
Enable social innovation at your organization. Join this webinar to learn how to create value for your company through social innovation.
The authors of “Innovating for Shared Value” (Harvard Business Review; 2013), studied more than 30 companies and discovered that firms consistently rely on the same five mutually reinforcing ingredients:
1) Purpose 2) Defined need 3) Measurement 4) Co-creation 5) Innovation structure
Our panelists will discuss how visionary companies apply these ingredients to overcome hurdles to solve social problems. REGISTER
