From NGO to Social Enterprise

Why this course
Many not-for-profit organisations are looking for ways to enhance their sustainability, diversify their income sources and become less dependent on external funding. One route is social entrepreneurship, i.e. making products and services available directly to those who need them but still be driven by the mission to effect change and create a social impact. Social entrepreneurship combines a market orientation with a social purpose, generating both financial and social revenues.
