Advancing Social Enterprise
How can social enterprise build economic opportunity in our community? This was the question leaders from our member organizations challenged us to explore.
This past year, based on member input and a $500,000 grant from the Northwest Area Foundation, we created a Social Enterprise Development Network (SEDN). The SEDN pulls together expertise, resources, and technical assistance to help our members take their social enterprise ventures and ideas to the next level.
The SEDN will build partnerships with our member organizations and outside partners and the community; inspire new ideas through thought leadership, provide technical assistance and capacity building, and develop common language and tools to focus our members’ work on social enterprise.
We meet members where they are in their social enterprise journey to provide innovative solutions to help them achieve success.
