Michel Bauwens: The Emerging Fourth Sector « Public Intelligence ... | Social Innovation in China | Scoop.it
I really like this article! With China's third sector development still in its nascent period, and based on what I'm hearing from the current Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau leadership, it would seem at least in this city, the growing momentum is towards developing a 4th sector: They spur innovation, reward entrepreneurial effort, provide a return on investment and constantly improve their performance responding to market feedbacks. They draw on the skills, effort and ingenuity of individual ...

While many innovative solutions have been deployed, the most important challenge now is identifying the very best of these practices and programs and replicating them to achieve global scale. This McKinsey research article points out four major opportunities into the path forward to scaling the most promising solutions which include cross-sector collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Social Entrepreneurship in China: A Resource Guide | By Xing Hu

Social Entrepreneurship in China: A Resource Guide | By Xing Hu | Social Innovation in China | Scoop.it
At the (past) Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations at Harvard University, where I manage the Nonprofits in China program, I am regularly approached by students who are interested or already involved in “doing good” in China. One Harvard international student from China sees his involvement in volunteering and starting nonprofits since high school in China as key to his admission to Harvard. Speaking of the amazing personal and professional growth he achieved through his experiences, he once said to me, “The water of doing good runs deep!” He is right. It takes courage, perseverance, empathy and compassion, a sense of responsibility, and openness to learning to be willing to volunteer or create something new. In the context of China, an understanding of the burgeoning sphere of doing good is also important. In this section, I would like to guide you through the most common approaches to doing good in China and introduce you to resources for becoming involved.

movashaka's insight:
In my experience, even local Chinese nationals have a hard time trying to register a non-profit when it's still at the ideation stage. I have observed that non profits run their programs to establish a track record before attempting legal registration.
