DOING LAB | Write the Business Plan for Social Enterprise

Interested in starting a social enterprise, or seeing if your idea could be the next great revenue source for your nonprofit? This is the lab for you. Over three sessions, we'll build a business plan for your social enterprise, with the goal of providing unrestricted income for your organization through the sale of a product or service. Business plans are your roadmap for determining the feasibility of your idea, the steps for starting the social enterprise, and the capital you'll need to make a go of it.

Bring board members, key staff, or your team of two to four for this lively, hands-on course. Templates and materials will be provided. Homework between sessions will be necessary.

May 5 Class: Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, this class will be offered online via Zoom. Registrants will be emailed the day before their class with detailed instructions and the Zoom meeting link. Please note the time for the Zoom classes will be provided in the email.

GCN is actively monitoring information from the CDC and health department and we understand that the situation is fluid, so we plan to be in contact with any changes.
