Social purpose and profit purpose define an organization’s social impact. Traditional companies occupy one end of the spectrum, with their focus on profit and asset distributions. On the other end of the spectrum, charitable organizations not engaged in trade have no profit motivation and are defined exclusively by their social mission. Impact-driven companies strike a balance between these two extremes, taking different approaches in balancing social and profit purpose.
