For general information on social entrepreneurship, go to the Duke Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship website.
Contact the local Small Business Development Center for information on entrepreneurship training and other resources available for local businesses. Although some aspects of business ownership will be different for nonprofit-owned companies, most will be the same.
