What is a Flourishing Enterprise?

A Flourishing enterprise “does good to do well”. It does this by generating tri-impact: co-creating financial, social and environmental value for all stakeholders. The ultimate goal is to sustain the “possibility for human and other life to flourish on this planet forever” (Ehrenfeld, MIT, 2000).

Who are our stakeholders?

Entrepreneurial enablers: Accelerators, Hubs, Incubators, Co-working Spaces, Corporate Innovation Labs and University Entrepreneurship Centres.

What we do

We draw on the strengths of the encouragers existing programs and infuse the Lean4Flourishing approach to enhance outcomes for entrepreneurs.

The Lean4Flourishing approach builds on the proven value of innovative processes, methods and tools such as Lean Startup, design thinking, systems thinking, co-creative leadership and business modeling powered by a new generation of fit-for-purpose tools, such as the Flourishing Business Canvas and the Future Fit Business Benchmark.
