"We use a business approach to produce innovative and strategic, yet affordable, solutions so our non-profit clients can increase revenues with optimized costs" is the value proposition of Social Focus Consulting, a Toronto-based social business with an eye on helping non-profits become more entrepreneurial and business-like.
The company's blog is particularly intriguing and offers insight into everything from "Turning a crisis into opportunity," insights from Schulich's Board Governance and Leadership Conference to "What your cause can learn from a poutine/pizza place." Yes, really!
When non-profits pull from perhaps unlikely spaces and places, there exists a true opportunity for social innovation and the creation of a sustainable organization that can focus on the cause at hand.
