Why Nonprofits Should Think More Like Tech Companies
"Social entrepreneurship is a new form of creating social change," said Social Startup Success author Kathleen Kelly Janus. "It used to be about checkbook charity . . . Bill Drayton, the godfather of social entrepreneurship, says, 'It’s no longer about just giving a man a fish or even teaching a man to fish. We need to revolutionize the fishing industry'.”
"That’s exactly what social entrepreneurs do," Janus said. "They’re thinking about how you can solve the underlying problems of, say, homelessness, so you don’t have to just give a man a bed, that you can prevent homelessness from happening in the first place."
Janus explains on the latest episode of Recode Decode.
