In 1982, Paul Newman founded Newman’s Own, a for-profit corporation created to sell food products and donate 100% of the profits to charity. What started as a boutique operation has grown into an international business with over $350 million in revenues. Many people consider Paul Newman to be one of the original pioneers in the area of social enterprise, and now others are following his lead by applying business strategies to achieve social purposes. The social enterprise model has become increasingly popular and successful over the past few decades, but what should such an entity look like? During this webcast, our speaker will discuss the three common corporate forms for social enterprise activities and the pros and cons of using each.
