"Blueprints for Social Enterprises - How should we be organized?"
Presenter: Noel Fleming, Partner, Conley Fleming LLP
It's not your father's nonprofit world. The rules, the players...even the structures are changing. The burgeoning field of social enterprise raises many important strategic and operational issues that must be considered in the early stages of forming such ventures. Chief among these is identifying the type of legal structure that should be used to maximize a social entrepreneur’s vision.
“Blueprints for Social Enterprise” will survey some of the various options available to social entrepreneurs for structuring their social enterprise ventures. The presentation will highlight some of the advantages and disadvantages of each type of structure to give the audience a better sense of which structure might be suitable in various instances. Armed with this information, attendees will be better equipped to understand how social enterprises should be structured to maximize value from both a profit or nonprofit perspective as well as from a “mission” perspective.
