The Colorado Nonprofit Social Enterprise Exchange has spent the last few months promoting the 2015 Social Enterprise Cohort, reviewing applications, and working with a volunteer selection team of community nonprofit experts to choose the 2015 Cohort. Prior to the application deadline, we worked with number of organizations to help them determine if they were ready and had the capacity to apply for the 2015 Cohort or whether they should further develop their internal capacity and readiness over the next year and apply in 2016.
Following several months of engagement with our nonprofit community, we are excited to announce the 2015 Colorado Nonprofit Social Enterprise Cohort starting in January:
We believe the variety in types and sizes of organizations and the challenges inherent in such a diverse mix of organizations will maximize the benefits of and outcomes from our peer-learning environment. Their interests in developing sustainable sources of income and creating jobs for their clients and communities are a common bond that we look forward to helping them develop over the next two years on their way to launching their new social ventures.
