Normally on Social Business we feature businesses with a clear business model -- and by business, usually that means profit -- however, Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital (AJEH) is an example of a middle ground so to speak. In an article called "Out of London and New York" in the Spring 2013 of the Stanford Social Innovation Review, writer Manju Mary George discusses different ways to make social impact through innovation.
George touches on AJEH, which is a hospital that works to eradicate blindness in Bihar, India. More specifically, she questions the relationship between impact investors and philanthropy and ways to disrupt the current models that lack capital.
