Nonprofit leaders must connect their social impact work with the right business model to achieve sustainability. With finite resources and limited staffing, developing the most appropriate business plan can be a challenge for many nonprofits that are more focused on the immediate needs than their sustainability over the long haul.

This course teaches nonprofit organizations, social entrepreneurs, and social change leaders how to use financial modeling and creative approaches to market-based funding to scale the impact of their work. This course will be valuable for organizations of all shapes and sizes, and particularly useful for those in the early stages of development.
