Welcome to Flourishing Business
Our vision is that a successful business creates tri-profit: financial rewards, social benefits and regenerates the environment. It does this by sustaining “the possibility for human and other life to flourish on this planet forever” – an idea first put forward by MIT Scholar John Ehrenfeld. As our contribution to this audacious goal we want our Flourishing Business Canvas to be used widely for both non-commercial and commercial organizations. Therefore, ultimately it will be released under a creative commons license without usage restriction. The canvas is a key component of our forthcoming Flourishing Business Innovation Toolkit, which will be simultaneously released with the canvas in book and other forms. But in the mean-time we would love you to:
- Experience the Flourishing Business Canvas – come to one of our workshops
- View current schedule of talks and workshops
- Use the Flourishing Business Canvas in your organization – join our “First Explorers”
- Contribute to its further development – financially or in-kind – join our “Marquee Supporters”
- Undertake research using it – join our community of researchers
To explore how these possibilities can help you reach your goals please contact us at inquiry@FlourishingBusiness.org
