Rise of the 4th Sector

There is a new sector of the economy that is embracing businesses that merge mission and margin, purpose and profit. This movement within business seeks to create social and environmental impact through the powerful economic engine of capitalism. This movement is reshaping the economy, capitalism, businesses and nonprofits. This model offers businesses the opportunity to actively engage in creating value that goes beyond the bottom line.

What is the Colorado Institute for Social Impact (CI4SI)?

We are an social enterprise created to enhance and organize the 4th Sector by providing training, consultation, and awareness to social entrepreneurs reshaping capitalism.
