Join Community Resource Center as we celebrate the kickoff of our newly acquired program, Colorado Nonprofit Social Enterprise Exchange (The Exchange).
The Exchange is where innovators, creatives, social entrepreneurs and visionaries come to learn about, share, enhance, develop, finance, and launch sustainable revenue projects and businesses for their nonprofit organizations.
Founded in 2013, by Caryn Capriccioso and Rick Zwetch of InterSector Partners, and Julie Voyles of JVoyles Nonprofit Consulting, the Exchange has worked to create a resourced ecosystem of social enterprise nonprofits, venture philanthropists, and foundations to support Colorado communities. The Exchange has graduated 21 organizations who have successfully launched 12 social enterprises, with another 4 in development. Participating organizations have raised over $1.5 million in start-up and initial capital, and created 28 jobs in the community.
