About organizational models


Leveraged non-profit ventures 

“The entrepreneur sets up a non-profit organization to drive the adoption of an innovation . In doing so, the entrepreneur engages a cross section of society, including private and public organizations, to drive forward the innovation through a multiplier effect. Leveraged non-profit ventures continuously depend on outside philanthropic funding, but their longer term sustainability is often enhanced given that the partners have a vested interest in the continuation of the venture”.
