Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The non-profit corporation has been the traditional structure for new, small theater companies for 50 years or more. With the rise in social enterprise businesses, could a for-profit social enterprise model be a better fit? In this session, I'll describe what a social enterprise is, some problems in the non-profit model, and why social enterprise could work for small theaters. Discussion with attendees to follow.
