Within CSR and social entrepreneurship, we offer a broad scope of applications:

We can assist with putting in place the basis of your social responsibility initiative. Key to this is ensuring that any programme your organisation embarks on is informed by and reflects the core competencies and business strategy of your company.

We will use forums such as community readiness programmes and workshops to identify the key stakeholders of your planned initiative – while Theory of Change workshops help ‘prepare’ your organisation for the journey ahead.


A key approach that sets Behold apart is our formalised Impact Measurement tool based on Social Return Of Investment (SROI) Methodologies. This is our framework for measuring and accounting the value generated from your CSI involvement – allowing you to evaluate success in very concrete, real terms:

A scientific approach - Change is measured in ways that is relevant to the people involved and the organisations. This is achieved by looking at social, environmental and economic outcomes – which is translated into a monetary value. The net result? We can calculate and give you, in real terms, a simple ratio of BENEFITS TO COSTS.
Understanding what has happened - Evaluative SROI lets us look at the returns of a project retrospectively and based on outcomes that have already happened.
Examining what lies ahead – Forecast SROI lets us predict how much social value will be created by a project.

From human dignity to community health, we are able to express these criteria in terms of a monetary value and a narrative or ‘story’.

We originate our own CSI ‘ideas’ or initiatives – developing them into viable projects then pitching them to the right partners to bring them to life. We work with social entrepreneurs to help them realise their vision and translate it into a viable business plan.
