The Social Enterprise Alliance North Texas Chapter convened entrepreneurs, nonprofit executives and social enterprise practitioners in June to learn about new legal and tax structures for social enterprise organizations. New hybrid organizations are adopting emerging social enterprise models, employing innovative strategies, and creating business alliances to drive positive social change. This interactive presentation helped nonprofit leaders and social entrepreneurs understand a myriad of legal, tax, and governance challenges in the Fourth Sector and learn ways to overcome them by using business efficiencies to achieve nonprofit goals. Marc Lane, a national-recognized expert on social enterprise law, led the discussion and offered his practical advice and answered questions about these issues and others:
The L3C business model and how social enterprises are already benefiting
Relieving legal tension between financial and social objectives
Understanding social enterprise legal issues
· Reducing the risks and financial burden of earned-income social ventures
· Leveraging foundations' "program-related investments" to attract private-sector capital for earned-income ventures
Converting nonprofit funders into social venture capitalists
