What exactly is a non-profit or social enterprise?
Traditionally, a for-profit business’ mission was simply to make money. On the other end of the spectrum, there were the philanthropic non-profits that carried out their mission with funds donated to the organization and overseen by a board of directors.
Over the last decade, a continuum of options has evolved in-between these two ends of the spectrum. Now, there are for-profit businesses that actually have the look of a non-profit business and fund a social good.
Take your passion and add this entrepreneurial background to it. For example, maybe you are a music major who could create a social enterprise that benefits underprivileged children. You could make a living and cultivate your passion for music.
Take your passion and apply it in a business that makes a positive impact on your community. Promote economic development in the Northern Arizona region and beyond.
