RISE

 

 

RISE - ReDesign in Social Enterprise is a training programme which has been developed over two years as part of an ERASMUS+ project and represents the latest, cutting-edge entrepreneurial approaches based on design thinking and applied within a social enterprise context, together with Action Learning Lab coaching and one-to-one mentoring.

Long are gone the days in which business planning was the only tool available to entrepreneurs and businesses to create a sustainable competitive advantage. While providing guidance for well-established organisations, business planning, a managerial tool, lacks the flexibility, and the plasticity required in setting up a new venture.

In the last ten to fifteen years, a new set of tools and practices have emerged in the business world which are more appropriate when creating and validating a new business idea.

 

The following training modules introduce these new tools

MODULE 1 - THE VALUE PROPOSITION AND THE DESIGN BRIEF

AIM: to introduce social entrepreneurs to the concept of the Value Proposition and the Design Brief as a first step in starting a social enterprise.

MODULE 2 - RESEARCH

AIM: to introduce social entrepreneurs to the two main types of research (qualitative and quantitative), their primary functions, how do they differ, and how to implement them.

MODULE 3 - BRAINSTORMING AND CREATIVE SESSIONS

AIM: introducing the concepts and the practice of creative thinking to social entrepreneurs setting up a new business.

MODULE 4 - PROTOTYPING/TESTING

AIM: introducing the concepts and the practice of prototyping and testing to social entrepreneurs setting up a new business.

MODULE 5 - THE BUSINESS MODEL

AIM: introducing starting entrepreneurs to the concept, role and the practice of business modelling. This module also highlights the importance of the process of validating a business model before getting started with business planning.

MODULE 6 - BUSINESS PLAN & FINANCE

AIM: to introduce social entrepreneurs to the concept of the Business planning and the financial projections needed in starting a social enterprise.
