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.
