Hello Ministry Incubators community!

We’re rounding up another great week of posts and resources from within the social entrepreneurship world! Take a few minutes to peruse some articles, read about some great change-making organizations, and get excited about how these might help your own team get started.

  1. Everything you ever needed to know about forming an organization and a corporate structure. Don’t snooze on us yet – this article breaks down all the misconceptions around LLCs, non-profits, hybrids, and everything in between. A great skim of the trade-offs that exist between all the available options.
  2. How our experiences can shape transformative ideas. An inspiring story from an Echoing Green fellow who launched a social enterprise targeting race and injustice.
  3. Stretch your creative muscles and join the OpenIDEO workshop on how economic opportunities might be expanded for youth in East Africa. A great opportunity to practice the skills of design thinking in a cool context!
  4. Praxis Labs is an incredible organization supporting a network of Christian social ventures in both non-profit and for-profit capacities. Check out this short article on their leadership and projects!
  5. All the excitement for a small innovation firm in Detroit, Michigan looking to redesign Health and Human Services benefits programs. Check out Civilla’s podcast here!
