There is a need for revolutionary enterprises to step into the chasm between the non-profit and for-profit business models, to form a new model. One that is bold, resourceful, industrious, socially responsible, and fiscally viable.
In order for this new model to be achieved, there needs to be more cross-pollination of ideas between the non-profit and for-profit sectors, and academia. Unfortunately these areas of expertise often operate in isolation. Each has strengths and best practices to bring to the table, think of the potential that could be harnessed if all three got together to dream up a new model. Who will take that first step into the chasm to encourage the birth of a new model and revolutionary ideas? Or will we all be content to continue on the current path?
