A weekly(-ish) roundup of what what’s new or newsworthy with us, our clients, our partners and friends. Mostly professional, some personal – with a focus on the positive.
1. L3C interest ebbs and flows – this month it’s flowing. Based on the number of downloads of Who is the L3C Entrepreneur? and inquiries to interSector from folks hoping to start an L3C, we know that interest in this LLC-based structure for social good is here to stay.
2. A new book to support the above point. From our good friend and leader in the entrepreneurship, social enterprise and impact investing space, Marc Lane brings us his 35th book: The Mission Driven Venture: Business Solutions to the World’s Most Vexing Social Problems.
3. And further evidence – wait, perhaps this is a themed Five for Friday, after all – Emily Davis & Associates Consulting hosted Alternatives to Nonprofit Creation at Impact Hub Boulder and led a lively discussion with Rick Zwetsch from interSector, Amy Rosenblum from Cultivation Center and Margaret Katz from The Community Foundation Serving Boulder County.
4. It’s not just talk, either. Art Restart, a social enterprise of The Gathering Place and graduate of the Colorado Nonprofit Social Enterprise Exchange had a very successful launch season and is now hiring a director. Let us know if you’re interested.
5. Develop your social impact knowledge and skills. Early bird registration deadline for the Social Enterprise Alliance Summit is next week. Join us in Denver next September!
