New Direction

May 24, 2011

Changing some of the directions for this site. I’ve been interested in the development of Social Impact Bonds in the US for a couple of months. The SIB is being primarily driven by the Nonprofit Finance Fund and a group of other foundations. The company I work for is very likely a good candidate for this kind of funding because we have easily measured impacts that also have a defined monetary value. Therefore, on top of continuing a discussion about developing experiences, I’m also going to focus fairly heavily on the development of the SIBs but also on how small to medium size nonprofit organizations and social enterprises scale. Some of this is probably old hat, or crowded with professionals, but it’s interesting to me and will likely be helpful with my professional career so it’s worth doing.
