Toward a Preemptive Social Enterprise

$14.99 / On Sale

Introducing an exciting new book from Matthew Manos, on the future of business and social impact. 200 pages.

Social Entrepreneurship is almost always too late. As practitioners of social enterprise, we hold the assumption that our responsibility is to exclusively act post-crisis in order to gradually chip away at a persistent problem, or to maintain a state of peace. The art of reaction is necessary, but the expectation of post-traumatic innovation as the singular starting point for an entire industry is limiting. What if social enterprise was also responsible for preemption? What if social entrepreneurs were also futurists? This is the message of our manifesto.

Toward a Preemptive Social Enterprise features a comprehensive workbook, a series of interviews with leading futurists on the future issues that will inspire social entrepreneurship, a foreword by Stuart Candy, a visual history of social enterprise, new and revisited essays from Matthew Manos, and much more.

Toward a Preemptive Social Enterprise has been featured in Fast Company, HOW Magazine, Core77, Planet Experts, Impact Design Hub, and more.
