Join this webinar to learn how to create value for your company through social innovation.

The authors of "Innovating for Shared Value" (Harvard Business Review; 2013), studied more than 30 companies and discovered that firms consistently rely on the same five mutually reinforcing ingredients:

1) Purpose 2) Defined need 3) Measurement 4) Co-creation 5) Innovation structure


Our panelists will discuss how visionary companies apply these ingredients to overcome hurdles to solve social problems.

Featured Experts:

  • Mark Thain, Vice President, Social Innovation at Barclays
  • Riikka Timonen, Director, Corporate Responsibility at Kemira
  • Marc Pfitzer, Managing Director, FSG
  • Valerie Bockstette, Managing Director, FSG

What You'll Learn:

  • How the five ingredients work together to create the optimal innovation structure (Marc Pfitzer and Valerie Bockstette)
  • How to create an enabling environment for shared value, what support should be put in place beyond money, and how to leverage foundation or CSR-money to successfully embed innovation back into the mainstream business (Mark Thain) 
  • The criteria needed to launch an initiative, based on a clear social purpose, deep understanding of the targeted social problems, and mastery of the competencies to solve them, and how to build a business case that meets or comes close to achieving the normal ROI targets (Riikka Timonen)
