Who is the L3C Entrepreneur? - UPDATED Fall 2012

Published Fall 2012

There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all who profit by the old order, and only lukearm defenders in all those that profit by the new order. This lukewarmeness arises partly from fear of the adversaries, who have law in their favor and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have actual experience of it.

~ Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince 1513

The Future of Philanthropy - Hybrid Social Ventures
by Roxanne Phen

“While business advertises, charity is taught to beg. While business motivates with a dollar, charity is told to motivate with guilt. While business takes chances, charity is expected to be cautious. We measure the success of businesses over the long term, but we want our gratification in charity immediately. We are taught that a return on investment should be offered for making consumer goods, but not for making a better world.”

-Dan Pallotta, Uncharitable
