My word.....

My purpose here is to give an introductory lesson on how


to become a social entrepreneur. Let us change the society,
change the world. Go with positive spirit. Please pass this
presentation to all those who might need it. Let us spread
knowledge as widely as possible. I welcome your
suggestions. I also request you to help me in spreading
social entrepreneurship across the globe – for which I need
support of you people – not of any VIP. With your help, I
can spread the ideas – for which we stand....

Decide about mission of your
life ?

What do you want to do in life ?


We cant do everything – we have to identify some sectors
where we are capable to contribute something to the society.
This decision depends on 4 aspects : 1. our strengths (our
capabilities) 2. our passion (what really motivates us) 3. our
network (who can help us / support us 4. social demand and
supply position (sometime great ideas will fail – becuase
people dont like them)

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 3
Work with some entrepreneurs ...

Entrepreneurs are different from others – because they work


with tremendous positive spirit, missionary zeal, contagious
enthusiasm, fervour, and and urge to do something. They are
willing to take risk and are willing to try out new experiments,
even if they fail. They have a sprit to fight with the situation.
These characteristics can come in you only when you work
with entrepreneurs. You have to really break your service class
mentality (dont mind my language).

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 4
Look out of new ideas ....
People dont like new ideas - most creative and
innovative ideas are discarded by people at the
first thought – but you should PICK UP these
ideas, refine them, polish them, prepare them
again – make them work. Great ideas are
spread out all around us – but in dust bins –
just pick them up – our habits / customs and
our closed thinking dont allow us to look at
those ideas (we reject them instantly).
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 5
What type of ideas suit you ?

You can have a variet of ideas like :


Do you like advocacy ?
do you like Writing & Media related work ?
Is it any product or a service that ticks you ?
Is it the idea of sustainable development that fascinates
you?
Are you looking for some more philosophical and
fundamental issues relating to our universe ?

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 6
Try out the ideas – learn from trial
and error ...

Try the ideas – they will fail – but keep trying them. When I
started FREE PGPSE – people didnt accept the idea – the
ONLINE PGPSE Programme is yet to pick up – but for last 4
years I have been trying – I have to continue to try – People are
slaves to their thinking – they dont accept new ideas. We have
deeply inherited the easier path to follow others, to follow
brands and to follow what has already been tested out. So you
have to wait for people to try it out. ....

Prepare business plans – and
critially evaluate them...
The purpose of preparation of business plan is
to ensure that you are able to predict all the
failures that are possible. When you prepare a
business plan, you have some assumptions –
write them down- these assumptions need not
be valid – if these assumptions fail – your
business will also fail. So critically evaluate
your assumptions ... and again prepare a
business plan....
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 8
Identify social problems and
challenges ....

Some people say - “society is full of


problems”.. this is an opportunity for
social entrepreneurs – it is easier to work in a
society where there are lots of problems and
people realise that they are living in real hell.
You can bring transformation in that society
easily. ...
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 9
Why do people tolerate social
problems ....
Every person is not a social entrepreneur ...they
will face the social problem and continue to
face the problems.
Most people are constrained due to some or
other reasons – some dont have courage to
speak out – some dont have skills to present
their ideas – some dont have network for
support and some people dont have solutions in
their mind ....

What to learn and how to become
a social entrepreneur?
You have to learn a few things –
1. delearn what you have learnt so far – that we cant do
anything – we can change the world – the world is bound to be
a dirty place – people work only for money
2. learn to use resources carefully (dont waste resources – most
people waste resources these days – the more developed people
waste more resources)
3. learn to work with people & change them (the most difficult
of all)

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 11
How to prepare business plan?
1. write your assumptions
2. identify relevance of your concept / idea / product /
service & its technical feasibility
3. why should people accept your idea / product / service
(identify the benefits that you can offer – which are
superior to the available ones)
4. prepare your marketing plan
5. undertake financial analysis
6. identify the schedule
7. survey and test out the idea
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 12
How to build team ?

The most difficult question. Finding people who are


willing to work with you as social entrepreneur – is the
most difficult task – I have not been able to build a team
so far - as most people fail to understand the ideas that I
stand for ... I believe that this is the most essential part of
social entrepreneurship – look out for those people, who
have faced tragedies in life / real problems in life (they
have a greater urge to bring about social transformation
and have a passion to work for a noble cause).

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 13
How to raise money ?

Dont raise money in the beginning – work with your own


money – once you have framed a team and established systems
- go for raising money
you can contact funding agencies / venture capitalists /
supporters for funding ...
Those who give money – would like to take something back –
what would you be able to give ?
Once you become establish - people will freely donate – but
there is a long time till than ..

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 14
Establish your brand ...
People have herd mentality – they follow the
established brands and established
organisations....
If I try to conduct a workshop on social
entrepreneurship – I have to make a lot of
efforts – if a professor of an established
business school tries – people just run after him
– so this is the fact of life – you also have to
establish your brand ...
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 15
Learn from the best in the
world ....
Your life should be a continuous journey
towards learning – continue to learn and
transfer your learnings to others ...
whenever you get a chance to learn – try to
grab every opportunity that you can get to
learn
delearning and constant self introspection are
equally necessary
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 16
Some good institutions in social
entrepreneurship ...

TISS
SKOLL FOUNDATION
XIM
and there are many more
ours is a very small one and will remain the
smallest one ...
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 17
Start with small initiatives ....

Dont wait for large resources to come to you –


start with what you have - if a baby waits to
grow up to learn to walk , it will never walk ...
so just take up your little steps – whatever you
can do – do – and wish for the best – most
people will criticise you – but a few will
appreciate you also - that is the best time that
you can have – so just go ahead ....
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 18
Go for lean organisation ..

SPIC – MACAY still has only one paid


employee – surprised !!!
so dont wish to make a government kind of
department with lots of Babus and clerks ...
just have a lean organisation .. with as many
entrepreneurs (no employees) as are
available ... (entreprereneurs are scarce, clerks
are in plenty) ..
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 19
Read success stories of social
entrepreneurs ....

When you read success stories of entrepreneurs


– it wil inspire you (you need it badly – if you
really want to succeed)
there is one book I suggest you to read :
HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD
BY : DAVID BORNSTEIN (PENGUIN
PUBLICATION)
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 20
The inner power – the best power
for social entrepreneurship ...
Social entrepreneurs are made from inner
power – not from a degree from a premium
business school
can you harness that inner power in you ? ? ?
if a person has suffered a lot – there is a great
possibility that the person can become a social
entrepreneur – because there is a possibility of
a great will power and a high level of tolerance
for problems / sufferings ....
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 21
Can you believe it ?

Jagdish Bhai Patel couldnt see, couldnt walk


properly (half body paralysis), yet he created
one of the best institutions of our time –
BPA. ..
how ? ? ?

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 22
Can you believe it ? ? ?

Ila ben Pathak setup AWAG – but today the


workers in AWAG are more vocal on issues
relating to women then Ilaben – for the
workers - AWAG is their own organisation –
they are not employees, they are the true
owners of this organisations ...

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 23
Time for society – no time for
self ...
Vipin Bhai Shah (career consultant and
founder of Sarvottam Karkirdi Margdarshan)
rarely gets time for play or for entertainment –
as he has to give career guidance to thousands
of students of Gujarat (so he cant spare
time).. ...
social entrepreneurs have to spare time for
society - not for self. ...(so be prepared for it –
although you may not like it)
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 24
How will you scale up your
work ?
Plan for it ...
how will you spread your work
how will you spread your work in other
places..
how will you provide your knowledge and
skills to others ...
how will you become a model organisation or a
training & development centre for others ...
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 25
Models for development...

You can read Model of Social innovation


prepared by me on social institution, which can
help you to create your own model of growth
and development.
