    Non-profit organizations in general and social enterprises in particular seek new methods to reach scale. To do so, they need to leverage networks, secure financing and access new markets. The U.S. consulting firm, Social Enterprises Associates, offers its new publication, Tip Sheet # 9, Resources for Scaling Social Enterprises with triple bottom line resources for social entrepreneurs and their organizations to grow.

    Download the publication from the homepage http://www.socialenterprise.net Under “New Material”
