Session 4: Promoting Impact Through Hybrid Structures

This session will cover how organizations can maximize impact through hybrid structures. A diverse panel will discuss how for for-profit businesses can utilize a .org to expand market share as well as how non-profits can leverage a for-profit affiliate to reduce dependence on grant funding. Speakers will share stories on how these hybrid structures have improved business models and will answer questions from those considering a similar approach.
