Impact to Last
Impact to Last: Lessons from the Front Lines of Social Enterprise is a series of in-depth case studies, a full report, and an executive summary commissioned by REDF that profiles a diverse group of high-performing social enterprises from around the country that together employ more than 10,000 people each year-people and generate over $150 million in annual revenue.
This research reveals a compelling alignment of core drivers of success: a set of five common practices on the journey to achieving scale. By exploring these drivers, Impact to Last highlights the ingredients necessary for success at a field level. REDF looks forward to joining with our colleagues in the field to apply this learning, and working together to build an ecosystem to support the growth and impact of social enterprises nation-wide.
