Publisher's Summary

The current business-for-profit model rewards short-term thinking, narrow self-interest, and a social-and-environmental-costs-be-damned attitude. Nonprofits, while more focused on the greater good, tend to be inherently resource-challenged and rely on increasingly scarce grants and donations to sustain their existence. Social enterprise is an exciting, blended model driven by the desire to create positive change through entrepreneurial activities.
The Art of Social Enterprise is a practical guide that supplies everything you need to know about the mechanics of social entrepreneurship including:


Startup-envisioning and manifesting intention
Strategic planning-balancing social and monetary value
Maintaining an even keel despite the inevitable challenges associated with being an entrepreneur
This valuable resource also provides an unparalleled legal perspective to help you take advantage of established legal organizational forms, recent statutory creations, contract hybrids, certification programs and more.
Aimed at emerging as well as established social entrepreneurs, for-profit leaders who want to introduce an element of social responsibility into their companies, and nonprofit organizations who want to increase their stability by generating income, The Art of Social Enterprise is the definitive guide to doing well while doing good.

Ok information, too many opinions...

Couldn't finish the book. Way too much liberal opinion and new age thought for me. Would've been much better if they had presented facts and the basics. Their own ideas and language made it unbearable for me. Tried for the longest time to muddle through, because I wanted the info, but finally gave up...
