Succeeding with Partnerships and Collaboration In Social Impact Ventures | Episode 50

Season #3

Being financially sustainable is essential to a social enterprise. Having products and services that create value is as important, if not more important, than raising funds, getting investors, and making an impact because as a social enterprise, you have to succeed as a business first before you can make an impact. In this episode with our guest, Erica Castner, we explore ways in which you can build relationships organically and collaborate with others to market your products and services as an alternative - or supplement - to advertising. We also discuss how to set financial and impact goals and reverse-engineering your process to get you to your goals so that you can then identify concrete action steps that will get you moving towards - and accomplishing - your goals.
