Community Activist Feminist Environmental Entrepreneur Program
- Enjoy Business with Aloha as a CAFE Entrepreneur!
- Live Actively and Pleasurably through Conscious Capitalism!
- A community model for social entrepreneurs in the city or in the country!
A C.A.F.E. Entrepreneur embodies community, activism, feminism and environmentalism as part of their business plan to create a product or service that, in a concrete way, improves society or the world we live in.
There are many who would like to start a business and work in alignment with their values. Hedonisia has developed a model of urban or rural community living that allows you to do just that!
Here is how we apply the CAFE Entrepreneur model at Hedonisia Hawaii:
- Community: Hedonisia Hawaii is a community based business that does not have employees. Our social entrepreneur business model attracts like minded people creating a free floating community of volunteers and interns who come to Hawaii and contribute to our eco-tourism work and portfolio of CAFE Enterprise web projects that we manage in our 'community of individuals'!
- Activist: An activist entrepreneur works to change the law as part of their business activities. They can do so through lobbying or other forms of political engagement. However, they can also be political by creating products or services that challenges unjust laws. As Hedonisia, we are active in working through the local political system to create a legal foundation for sustainable communities in Hawaii and a precedent for others to do the same elsewhere.
- Feminist: It is a truism that women are often more unfairly treated than men in the vast majority of companies. So a CAFE Entrepreneur feminist principles as a core part of their operations. At the Hedonisia Community, we implemented policies and practices incorporating social justice, equality for women through our community business operations as described in our Eco-Feminist Community page.
- Environmental: A CAFE Enterprise should try to reduce, reuse and recycle at every level it of its business practices. Not only is it good for the planet but it is also good for the bottom line! Our community derives most of it income through eco-tourism and we adopt environmental principles at every stage of our business operations.
