Det är som ett förtroendeuppdrag, jag har mandat att förvalta mitt eget liv, kan jag det?

Kanske livet är en förtroende fråga?

Kan jag lita på livet? Kan jag lita på mig själv?

Det är som ett förtroendeuppdrag, jag har mandat att förvalta mitt eget liv, kan jag det?

Hybrid non-profit ventures

20130824_060747

“The entrepreneur sets up a non-profit organization but the model includes some degree of cost-recovery through the sale of goods and services to a cross section of institutions, public and private, as well as to target population groups. Often, the entrepreneur sets up several legal entities to accommodate the earning of an income and the charitable expenditures in an optimal structure.
