Introduction to Social Impact
With over 15 years building social enterprise organizations, join Jonathan Liebert as he provides an overview of the importance of the 4th sector (a new sector of the economy that merges mission and margin) and how this will reshape capitalism and the nonprofit world - in collaboration with Southern Colorado Small Business Week! We will discuss social impact, measuring the sector, and the trends we see shaping the future of our economy. This movement is reshaping nonprofits, creating new funding opportunities, and creating sustainability and stability. Learn how to incorporate this into your existing structure, start one from scratch, or just get better informed about how the sector could impact you! Attendees will also hear from a panel of social impact business owners on how they started their businesses, lessons learned, and how they are impacting our local communities.
