It is well understood that Social Enterprises work at some of the most pressing problems we have as a society and country. They have a clear aim to maximize impact and social sustainability while being sustainable themselves. If the need to bring about positive impact among underprivileged populations is at the core of a social enterprise’s reason to exist, how is this then measured?

Are numbers the best way to measure impact? Have numbers served social enterprises well in their journey? Should we tell stories and not focus on the numbers? What does BIG data say, or not say?

How much impact, along the value chain, can a social enterprise claim for? Can a farming livelihood enterprise extend its impact to say it has been responsible for its stakeholders sending their children to private schools to be educated? How can impact be communicated?
