What is now defined as the social sector is big business. In the United States alone some 1.5 million nonprofits have combined revenues of $700 billion and control assets of $2 trillion.
But what many call “Social Sector Enterprise” is expanding the definition of what is and what is not important to the social sector as for profit businesses join nonprofits in their mission to change the world.
Social Sector Ventures is unique in its belief that supporting entrepreneurs who develop new innovative ideas and communication technology is the best way to fund the initiatives and systems that will empower Nonprofit Organizations (NPOs). We believe these systems will unleash donor generosity in ways that are scalable, efficient and in tune with changing donor preferences.
The Three Sectors of the Twenty-First Century Economy
1. The Public Sector: Business, Commerical and/or Financial Entities
2. The Government Sector
3. The Social Sector: Nonprofit and/or Nongovernmental Organizations
The Social Sector Ventures logo reflects these three sectors and highlights the enlightened role of the Social Sector.
