Description

Common Good Espresso Cohort

Much of the map used to understand the business enterprise is drawn from mainstream economics. This is problematic for a number of reasons, particularly when attempting to understand the recent emergence of social enterprise. We will explore how theology, particularly a theology of gift, might help re-narrate social enterprise and in doing so provide the contours of an alternative economic imagination. We will consider together the implications this has for our understanding of business models, concepts of ownership, and investment. Mark is the Director of Matryoshka Haus, a social enterprise and has recently completed a doctorate in theology and economics from King's College London in this area.

Schedule: Thursday, November 7, 14, 21, and December 5 starting at 5 PM ET / 2 PM PT for 75 minutes. (Note: November 28 there will be no gathering)

Prerequisite: TBD
