When we think of a social enterprise, we often think of a nonprofit business that is operating a for-profit subsidiary.  End of story.  In reality, there are several legal structures from which to choose, and no one size fits all.

Tune in as  Erirca Spangler Raz discusses social enterprises, the various legal structures, and the pros and cons of each.. Erica Spangler Raz is a Staff Attorney for The Law Project and works primarily in the Nonprofit Support Program. She has counseled hundreds of nonprofit organizations and regularly presents seminars on board responsibilities and fiduciary duties, startup nonprofit business planning, income tax exemption, financial distress and dissolution, and general nonprofit governance and compliance to community groups, nonprofit consultants and attorneys.
