About Bubble Chamber

Bubble Chamber is a social enterprise that is completely focused on helping other social enterprises achieve the clarity they need to grow. They offer clear practical ways to create an enterprising culture, scale-up, maximise resources and grow social impact.

Business coaching, a unique video curriculum, a Learning Management Platform and Peer to Peer Groups are tools used by Bubble Chamber to help create truly great social enterprises.

The B Corp model is a great one to ensure that we are living up to our own mission and that we are continually improving and being socially accountable.

The Change We Seek®

Bubble Chamber believes passionately in the opportunity for Social Enterprise to create a unique Fourth Sector of the economy, one that that doesn’t suffocate enterprise, as the public sector so often does, that doesn’t put shareholder value before everything else, as the private sector does, and that doesn’t suffer from the cultural confusion over enterprise that can paralyse so many charities.

Social Enterprise recognises that business often creates most value by focusing on a triple bottom line where the investment made by financial capital, employee capital and social capital are considered of equal importance and are therefore entitled to an equal return.

Bubble Chamber believes that clarity is the basis for the enterprising culture that is needed to achieve the scale of growth that Social Enterprise requires to offer a legitimate Fourth Sector of the economy.
