Free tools and resources to help you solve problems that matter. Downloadable worksheets, video content, articles, books, and events.
Your social enterprise idea shouldn’t leave you broke, burnt out, and isolated… we’re here to work alongside you and cheer you on!
This free healthcheck and scorecard is designed to help you baseline where you’re at, reflect on how things are going, and suggest some things to think about doing next. You’ll instantly receive your personalised report.
You can get through the healthcheck in under five minutes but the process of reflecting is as valuable as the score, so take your time. 33 questions in five key areas:
- Mindset & Wellbeing
- Purpose & Vision
- Workflow & Momentum
- Customers & Market
- Solution & Business Model
Note: While this scorecard is focused on social enterprise ideas, it’s equally relevant to any startup or product design and development process – especially if you want to take a human-centred design approach to innovation.
Resources to help you look after your wellbeing while you make a positive impact.
Mindset, personal sustainability, and happiness habits are key things you need for success… but are often neglected. I strongly recommend starting here to build and maintain positive practices.
Resources to help you get clarity of purpose and a create a compelling vision.
A clear purpose and vision gives you a filter to assess and prioritise options and makes decisions easier. A meaningful driving “why” will help you persevere as you face challenges.
Resources to help you get into your rhythm of prioritising, planning, reviewing, and building momentum so you can move forward with confidence.
When working with complex problems, you need enough certainty and structure to guide you and sustain momentum, without it being too rigid and getting in the way of progress.
Resources to help you achieve sharp clarity on the real problem to solve with an understanding of the systemic root causes – based on evidence, insight, and meaningful empathy.
Build deep empathy with the people you hope will use and pay for your solution – how they experience the problem, the context they experience it in, and how they currently solve it.
Resources to help you do the detailed design, build, and launch your idea in a way that reduces the risk of overinvesting time, money, and energy in a solution no one will use or pay for.
Rapidly learn and refine to create a solution that people want, that’s financially sustainable, and that you can make happen.
