Course Description

Special 2-Day Social Enterprise Seminar with National Author 

Monday, October 22 & 23, 2012, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Presented by Rolfe Larson, national author of Venture Forth! The Essential Guide for Starting a Money-Making Business in Your Nonprofit Organization.

Whether your organization already earns some income and wants to earn more, or you’re interested in exploring the possibilities, this in-depth workshop will show you how to plan, develop, finance and grow an effective social enterprise program. The 2-day training gives you proven strategies for maximizing the benefits of social enterprise in a manner that will actually strengthen your organization’s mission by building on its current activities, existing capabilities, and established stakeholder relationships.

This 2-day course will show you how to:

• Transform current activities, existing capabilities, and established stakeholder relationships into fresh and vital income streams.

• Open up business opportunities using your agency’s strengths.

• Guard against “mission drift.”

• Protect your IRS status.

• Evaluate social enterprise opportunities.

• Prevent diffusion of staff time and focus.

This program is presented in a very practical way, including some lecture, a lot of discussion and Q&A, and most importantly, hands-on application of the lessons, individually and in small groups.

You’ll see tangible results at each step, culminating in market research on an earned income opportunity for your organization and a mini-business plan you’ll create with a team of your peers.

Registration for this comprehensive 2-day training is $495
