  • Haven 710 West 35th Street Austin, TX, 78705 United States (map)

Intro to Social Impact Models: For-profits, non-profits, and everything in between 

Net Impact McCombs and Impact Haven are partnering to bring you a diverse panel presentation on the different ways to structure impact-focused organizations. At this informal event we’ll be keeping it real and learning from experts as they delve into the variety of options for social impact professionals. Should your organization be a non-profit or a for-profit? What about a B-Corp or a Public Benefit Corp? And what is a “social enterprise” after all? Our diverse panel will present their perspectives and field questions from the audience in this interactive session. 

The Panel of Experts: 

Kristin Scheel  
Business Transactions Attorney + Sustainability, Scheel Legal  
Social impact legal expert

Michael Willard
Former CEO of Austin Habitat for Humanity
Nonprofit veteran

Dawn Perkins
Small business advocate

Who Should Attend:

• Entrepreneurs who are starting an impact-oriented venture and are weighing different models (for-profit, non-profit, B-Corps)

• Entrepreneurs who might be interested in “baking in” a social aspect to their new venture

• Anyone who want to work in the impact space or is interested in learning about the landscape
