Innovation in Social Enterprise — Elan Babchuck, Rabbi & MBA, Glean Network

In this webinar, Elan Babchuck shares reflections, insights, and gleanings from his two decades of social and commercial entrepreneurship. Specifically, he focuses on sharing tools around:

  • How to best identify the real needs of individuals you seek to serve (using Jobs-to-be-Done theory)
  • Why removing barriers is more important that any marketing you’ll ever do (using Competing Pressures theory)
  • Why rule-breakers are the most important constituents (using Bright Spots methodology)

Elan Babchuck is a rabbi and an entrepreneur, and spends much of his time exploring the rich intersections between these two traditions and the abundant possibilities therein. He is the Founding Director of Glean Network, an incubator and network for entrepreneurs who are building new ventures and communities in light of their faith, and Director of Innovation at Clal, a think-tank focused on the future of faith in America.
