Book Synopsis

Today's economy has forced many charities to cut back on their service. Charitable giving is also down, and federal and state governments are pulling back on their support of the social sector. This trend has dramatically changed the business model for many nonprofit organizations, requiring them to become innovative and entrepreneurial in order to survive. For many, this means engaging in "social enterprise," and defining their success in terms of both financial and social returns. In addition, many for-profit businesses are also finding they can generate significant revenue while addressing social needs.

Social Enterprise: Empowering Mission-Driven Entrepreneurs provides comprehensive information and resources from definition to implementation.   This book is the complete legal guide that describes the special legal considerations facing for-profit, nonprofit and hybrid social enterprises addressing how to:

  • Create and develop a business model for the social enterprise with due attention paid to the relevant legal issues
  • Understand the details involved in funding, organizational structure business models, governance, and tax treatments
  • Organize and run the social enterprise
  • Effectively measure the social enterprise's impact

The future demands an entrepreneurial approach to business if social enterprises are to survive. If you run a social enterprise, are considering launching one, or advise social enterprise clients, this book is the essential guide to successfully navigating the state and federal rules facing social enterprises.
