Editorial Reviews


"Finally, sound and genuinely useful guidance for social entrepreneurs serious about delivering meaningful results. Scaling Your Social Venture offers a model that's as practical as it is motivating, providing leaders with what they need to build stronger, better organizations - organizations able to scale their impact!" - Sally Osberg, President & CEO, Skoll Foundation

"There is a growing movement worldwide to create entrepreneurial ventures that have impact on some of our societies' most difficult problems. Yet precious few ventures live up to those expectations. Too many fall far short of attaining their goals—not because they are not passionate enough, or ambitious enough—but because the complexity of scaling a social venture is fraught with multiple and simultaneously appearing challenges. Paul Bloom has written an enormously useful book that is essential reading for those social ventures that dream big." - Dr. Pamela Hartigan, director, Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, Said Business School -The University of Oxford

"Scaling up a social enterprise is difficult, and doesn't always succeed. It takes a lot more than hard work and passion. That's why Paul Bloom's practical, step-by-step process is so valuable. This book is pragmatic, useful and on target for moving up in the world and creating positive social change." - Bill Novelli, Professor, Georgetown University and former CEO, AARP and President, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids

"Paul Bloom has written the most important work of the year on the most important question facing anyone engaged in social change: How do I create the social change we need? The book could not be more timely or accessible, and is a must read for those of us who want to change the world." - Dr. Paul Light Paulette Goddard Professor of Public Service, Wagner School of Public Service, New York University, founding principal investigator of the Global Center for Public Service

"Scaling our operation was our biggest challenge and THE major factor of our success or failure at One Laptop per Child. Dr. Bloom's SCALERS model clarifies what we must focus and execute on to continue our growth and sustainability." - Charles Kane, former president, current Board Member, OLPC; senior lecturer, Finance, MIT Sloan Graduate School of Management.

"Paul Bloom's Scaling your Social Venture is a reader-friendly guide for practitioners  - both new and seasoned. Those hungry for real examples and pragmatic advice will find this book offers a feast for students of social entrepreneurship and practitioners alike." - Diana Wells, president, Ashoka
