Recently, Eli Malinsky shared five predictions for the future of Social Entrepreneurship (SE). His first, the title of this post, doesn’t seem to hold true for the Jewish nonprofit sector.
Young SE organizations like PresenTense, Joshua Ventures, Bikurim, ROI etc. have only grown in their acceptance and size. Recent examples include a Schusterman $250k grant to Ashoka Israel and the Israeli Government’s RFI to create an SE Fund (Hebrew Link).
The future of Jewish SE lies not on its disappearance as a distinct discipline, but rather in veteran institutions’ willingness to work directly with these newcomers to (hopefully) keep up with the changing times.
