"I’ve met several people recently who had something in common. All were building collaborations to address big problems. All were experiencing genuine success. Yet all felt somehow "odd" because the way they were addressing the problem did not fit the typical nonprofit-leader mold. To each of them, I’ve said the same thing: There’s a name for people like you, and it’s "system entrepreneur." - Jeff Walker
"It’s one of the perennial questions facing the nonprofit world: Why, despite the sector’s collective resources and best efforts, do so many social problems remain so persistent?"
