Drawing on both her extensive experience founding and directing social enterprises and her interviews with sustainability leaders, Melissa Scanlan provides a legal blueprint for creating alternate corporate business models that mitigate climate change, pay living wages, and act as responsible community members. This book reveals the power and potential of cooperating as a unifying concept around which to design social enterprise. Place a hold on a copy in our catalog.
