Entrepreneurial Solutions for Nonprofits
With Jerr Boschee

The pressures confronting nonprofits today are daunting:

  • Operating costs continue to climb
  • Traditional sources of financial support are increasingly unstable
  • The number of nonprofits competing for funds has risen dramatically
  • Demand for services is increasing
  • Donors are requiring greater levels of accountability

Fortunately, during the past few years, nonprofits throughout the country have been responding to the pressures by adopting entrepreneurial strategies that emphasize a "double bottom line": Helping the organization expand its impact and simultaneously increase its financial self-sufficiency.

Jerr Boschee has long been recognized as one of the founders of the social enterprise movement worldwide. To date he has delivered seminars or conducted master classes in 41 states and 13 countries, and his presentation will cover the following topics:

  • Why nonprofits are becoming more entrepreneurial
    (historical context, driving forces and five potential outcomes)
  • Examples of successful social entrepreneurs
  • Eight basic principles of social entrepreneurship
  • Fifteen critical success factors for nonprofits adopting entrepreneurial strategies (identified by the pioneers in the field)

Jerr Boschee has spent the past 25 years as an advisor to social entrepreneurs in the United States and elsewhere. To date he has delivered seminars or conducted master classes in 41 states and 13 countries and has long been recognized as one of the founders of the social enterprise movement worldwide. Nonprofit Times recently named him to its nonprofit sector "Power & Influence Top 50" list. He also served from 2001 to 2004 as an advisor to England's Department of Trade and Industry and is currently teaching a series of master classes throughout England, Scotland and Ireland. Mr. Boschee is the former President and CEO of The National Center for Social Entrepreneurs and is one of the six co-founders of the Social Enterprise Alliance.
