Details about this lecture: 
Nonprofits are generally conceptualized as a net-zero operation and sell their programs through “stories” on an annual bases in order to ensure annual fund raising and grant awards. The nature of the domain makes it such that competition in the sense that we imagine in the for-profit domain is nonexistent. In this talk, Dr. Minutolo presents work underway that argues for the re-conceptualization of nonprofits as either creating or destroying social profit. The re-conceptualization suggests the creation of a market valuation of the amount of social profit created that becomes marketable and, perhaps, even tradable. Ultimately, the creation of social profits is something that is transferable to for-profit organizations and may form the basis of competition.
