A social enterprise is a business with specific social objectives such as affordable housing or job creation in disenfranchised markets. Social enterprises seek to maximize profits by maximizing benefits to society and the environment.
Profits are primarily used to fund social programs or create new social systems and opportunities that benefit the masses.
Social enterprise views communities in need, not only as beneficiaries of economic support, but as the very people that should be part of any solution that can help improve their lives
or immediate circumstances .
In other words, when given the opportunity to increase their quality of life themselves, most people take advantage of it.
Every business is empowered by the number of customers they can serve. The more value they can bring to the customer, the more customers they generate.
As a social enterprise business model, the people we serve have
a double incentive. Creating their own pathway to better circumstances and lighting a pathway for others to follow.
Our approach to economic development is based on creating opportunity from the bottom up. We call it “Trickle Up Economics”. 3-DEDC helps create new pathways for our target markets to improve their own circumstances.
For example, digital gig market opportunities are exploding around the globe. New innovations and automation has created a fast growing digital economy that is changing the social landscape.
3-DEDC designs the infrastructure, so the disenfranchised can more fully participate on the digital playing field of opportunity. This is part of a comprehensive system to help this market move up the economic ladder to a more stable quality of life.
Digital gig market opportunities, opens the door for participants to build a revenue stream on their terms. Efforts large or small in the digital arena, generates a revenue stream that supports entrepreneurial training, apprentices, livable wage employment, social services and much more.
It is our directive at 3-DEDC , to continue to develop, fund and manage the digital infrastructure necessary to bring all of the moving parts together in the new economy. Forging a bold path of self-reliance for the people we serve.
