I am a shameless buzzword aggregator, touting whatever word of the week I can call my own, so "social intrapreneur" chimed with me for many reasons.
For the sake of this blog post, I define social intrapreneur as "an entrepreneurial individual, within a private company, driving the business towards making social impact while achieving it's business objectives".
It's important to distinguish a social intrapreneur from the CSR team, the sustainability lead, the community team, and the well-meaning who enjoy organising get well cards from the office.
Inclusive businesses wanting to market to low-income, rural consumers are increasingly using a village entrepreneur model for the ‘last mile’ of their distribution channel. However, although this model is growing in popularity, its use does not always guarantee success.
An inclusive business is like any other business: it needs a good business strategy to succeed. Experience from the Facility and IAP portfolios so far highlights just how much attention business plans require to ensure the business meets both commercial and social objectives. So what is different about business planning in inclusive business?
The projects supported by the Business Innovation Facility and Innovations Against Poverty are already generating a wealth of experience, lessons and ideas. We are now starting to capture this information and create materials that are accessible and useful to inclusive business practitioners.

I've been working in social business now for around fifteen years. I started out volunteering for a fairtrade social enterprise in Leeds. Except it didn't call itself a social enterprise because the term hadn't yet made it that far up north. We were a not-for-profit, and proud of it.
Are you considering implementing a programme to improve social or environmental performance of your supply chain? Are you aiming to work collaboratively with your suppliers to make these programmes effective?
Inclusive business projects, almost by their definition, tend to sit in areas outside of companies' traditional comfort zones. Whether providing economic benefits to disadvantaged people by including them in the company value chain or as customers by developing new pro-poor products or services, inclusive ventures are rarely business as usual.
If your company has created social value, and measured it, how do you get credit for it? It can be used for strategic advantage – if what you do is conveyed to key stakeholders in the right way.
To gain strategic advantage, the communication needs to be appropriate for a specific audience. For that audience we would do well to understand what makes them tick? What makes them roll over and purr as it were? Often the answer does not lie in selling details of the product, but communicating the issues and impacts that matter.
