Good Business Creates Good Business: Southwest Creations Collaborative (A) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

Southwest Creations Collaborative (SCC) was a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to promoting the employability and fiscal autonomy of underprivileged settler women in the Albuquerque, New Mexico. It sought to complete its assignment by providing part time and later full-time sewing and handwork jobs in a contract manufacturing business. SCC also provided many social program tasks for employees, including health education, English lessons, onsite childcare, and computer classes. The financial support of the organization came from a combination of grant financing and contract work.

Both cases stretch through the life of SCC, from its inception in 1994 through the middle of 2008. Case (B) starts where Case (A) finishes and concludes with choices in 2008 about whether or not to enlarge the business in order to become more economically self sufficient and less reliant on grants and donations, and whether to increase its impact by marketing its way of employee social programs to local companies and other organizations.
