Finding Investors for your Social Enterprise (Nonprofit or For-Profit)
Starting a social enterprise (nonprofit or for-profit)? How do you find startup investors for your idea? Here are a few social enterprise investors who may be able to help. #Entrepreneurship #SocialEnterprise #Nonprofit
Whether you’re starting a nonprofit or a for-profit business, a social enterprise business model may be a promising approach to generate sustainable revenue and scale. Did you know there are investors and funders out there who invest specifically in promising social enterprise organizations?
I now work full time for the 501c3 nonprofit I started many years ago and love seeing the social impact we make in our community as we grow. As we’ve grown, we’ve incorporated parts of a social enterprise business model. I’ve also known many people who started with social entrepreneurship (vs a traditional nonprofit route) and are making an incredible impact on the world!
In this video I share a list of social enterprise investors out there and how you might approach getting investment loans or grants.
