The RISE Social Venture Rubric is a diagnostic tool that was developed at Columbia Business School to aid the in-class evaluation of social ventures. It was designed to stimulate for discussion and to help a student, entrepreneur, investor or consultant identify points of relative strength or weaknesses of a social venture.
The Rubric encourages the assignment of rankings to different aspects of nonprofit and social ventures, but should not be considered a rating mechanism. The goal is not to compare different ventures but to break down elements of a venture into parts and explore how well they combine into a coherent vision and implementation that can create long-term value.Author(s): Cathy Clark
