Business Legacies Project

72% of business owners are looking to transition in the next 5-10 years. Non Profits are increasingly operating social enterprises. What could a transition to social enterprise look like? The Business Legacies Project is looking to answer that question.

  • Build a model that is replicable, viable and scalable
