Making the Law Work for Social Entrepreneurs
Min Pease, Echoing Green
Social entrepreneurs and impact investors need sophisticated legal practitioners who understand the nuances of the impact economy, particularly as they’re starting up. At every stage, social enterprises benefit from strong legal foundation and focus on governance as a tool for impact. Emerging companies face particular challenges when launching. The cost is high, they work across borders, and they straddle for-profit and nonprofit worlds. As they grow, enterprises struggle with mission-focus in the face of investment, and investors need mechanisms for impact measurement and reporting. Echoing Green and its Legal Advisory Group highlight learnings at the intersection of law and impact at the early stages and de-mystify the social enterprise/impact investing legal landscape.
