How do social enterprises balance the pursuit of a social mission with market realities? This session will explore overall trends in the affordable housing social enterprise sector, including common obstacles and success stories. Come and hear successful social entrepreneurs discuss how they identified a market need that was most appropriately addressed by a social enterprise and how their organizational structure and business model responded to that market gap.
