This workshop at Catalysing Change Week 2021 will present an ongoing research project to answer the question posed in the title, and invite social entrepreneurs to provide input. We want to understand from entrepreneurs: Are you actively seeking to sell your products or services to a corporate purchasing team? If yes, what have been the results? What have been the barriers? What support do you need to make sustainable business partnerships possible? The project will create both a framework to determine when a social enterprise is ‘corporate-partner-ready’, as well as a diagnostic tool to apply the framework.
