Social Enterprise Capitalism and the Global Good

Successful fundraising in the twenty-first century requires innovation and change which is beyond the resources and experience of even the largest nonprofit organizations (NPOs). The investment and risk required to achieve rapid and scalable communication strategies, platforms, donor management support and cloud computing are not the task or mission of even the largest nonprofits. Social Sector Ventures believes that NPOs must have outside capital that is focused on funding innovative communication resources, social networking and multichannel IT software and analytics. We provide the capital and nurture for the business models that will lead social sector NPOs to success in the twenty-first century.
