Value News Network
- I have greatly enjoyed being a member of this listserv. I have replied to other members� messages over the past three years, but never directly reached out and asked for advice.
A group of us have created a magazine Value: Tomorrow�s Markets, Enterprise & Investment and a web portal, http://www.valuenewsnetwork.com/ to address the cross-cutting themes across the value spectrum from corporate for-profits to the social enterprise sector�nonprofit earned-income initiatives as well as the �not only for profit� entities such as Newman�s Own, Stonyfield Farm and ourselves�to socially responsible investing and philanthropy.
The convening editors are John Elkington of www.SustainAbility.com and Jed Emerson who has put forward his thinking at www.blendedvalue.org
Our editorial mission statement:
Value believes that investors, business and--ultimately--society will benefit from a more rigorous examination of how real value is created. That is what we are dedicated to providing. But expect a challenging ride. Investment approaches and outcomes vary widely--and value itself clearly consists of more than economic value. We will focus on the best thinking about value; what works, what doesn't and the best strategies for maximizing social, environmental and economic returns.
Hugely ambitious I must admit, but now for the first time I really would like to get feedback from the group on this social enterprise initiative:
