Making a Profit and Doing Good – VWISE

We give so much, sometimes to our own detriment. What if we could empower ourselves and others to make sustainable improvements to our communities? What if we could make a profit and do good?

You can. We can.

But how?:

Should I form a nonprofit to make a difference for the military community? Are entrepreneurship and advocacy compatible?

In this VWISE session, I talk about business entity types, business models, revenue models, and impact models, examine some case studies and explore strategic factors for sustainable social impact.
