Cooperative Impact

Creating an environment that encourages new connections between the makers. Programs to reconnect people with their humanity so they care about people more than profit. As we build a pipeline of inspired community members it organically induces a specific type of new ideas. Rather than productivity tools we think of ways to make the quality of life better for all residing in this great nation. Connecting these budding social entrepreneurs with mentors is an imoprtant step in the process of blending a sustainable revenue model with their community-based idea. Impact investors are waiting in the wings.

In the early stage of developing a social enterprise ecosystem it is easiest to describe it as:

“Local community members who work cooperatively to create business models that tackle social problems like inequality and climate change. Members are assets to one another as they share resources, insight, and advice from respective industries.”

Society for Benefit Cost Analysis

The Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis (the “Society”), founded in 2007, is an international group of practitioners, academics, and others who are working to improve the theory and application of the tools of benefit-cost analysis. Although these tools have gained wide acceptance in many countries, ongoing work is needed to continue to improve the tools, their application, and the institutional settings in which they are applied.

Benefit-cost analysis (BCA), also known as cost-benefit analysis, aims to inform the decision-making process with specific types of information, namely measures in monetary terms of willingness to pay for a change by those who will benefit from it as well as of the willingness to accept the change by those who will not benefit.

The use of monetary terms provides a common metric. Its purpose is not to price everything, but rather to order choices in a way that informs decision-makers about social factors.
