Twelve Echoing Green Fellows and WNYC Radio’s Jami Floyd, host of All Things Considered, discussed the intersection of race and tech, justice, healthcare, and employment.
The Rise of the Hybrids
Echoing Green partners with researchers Julie Battilana and Matthew Lee from Harvard Business School on the first large-scale, quantitative study of emerging social entrepreneurs. Today, Stanford Social Innovation Review released an article on the rise and challenges of hybrid social enterprises that combine aspects of nonprofits and for-profits.
The article examines the work of Echoing Green Fellows David Auerbach, Jane Chen, Majid El Jarroudi, Jessamyn Rodriguez, and David del Ser, and identifies four unique challenges to hybrid oranizations:
1. Legal Structure
3. Customers and Beneficiaries
4. Organizational Culture and Talent Development
We encourage you to read the full article at Stanford Social Innovation Review, and add your thoughts to the conversation.
Identifying key trends affecting today's social entrepreneurs will help build out critical support.
Echoing Green’s annual gathering brings our global community together in Atlanta for a week of actionable programming and dialogue.
