Outlook/Perspective
I’ve always loved the passion in mission-based work, especially when nonprofits demonstrate impact and innovation in the community. To support nonprofits, we don’t just provide a workspace, training and services to nonprofit organizations, we coach and mentor them. We work one-on-one with nonprofits to help them create the business model to be sustainable so that they can fulfill their mission and ensuring they use good business practices needed to serve the community. My advice to nonprofit start-ups is simple: find your niche and know your competition. Consider the option of incubating your program idea within another organization, because there is much to learn from people with the experience of operating a public charity.
