About the Author:

Jane Wei-Skillern is an Assistant Professor of Business Administration in the General Management Unit and Social Enterprise Group at the Harvard Business School. She teaches her MBA elective, Entrepreneurship in the Social Sector at Harvard Business School and the Kennedy School of Government. She also teaches in the HBS Social Enterprise executive education program, Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management (SPNM). Professor Wei-Skillern earned her B.S. in Business from the Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley, an M.A. in Business Research and a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior, both from the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University. Prior to joining the faculty at Harvard, she was an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at London Business School.

Professor Wei-Skillern′s research is focused in the field of Social Enterprise. Her research has examined the topics of nonprofit growth and management of multisite nonprofits, and most recently has been focused on nonprofit networks. She is currently studying how building a range of strategic networks can be a powerful lever for nonprofits to achieve greater social impact. A strategic network is distinguished from traditional partnership approaches in that it entails a shift in mindset from the organization as the hub for social value creation, to the organization as a node within a larger network of critical and complementary entities that must work collaboratively to achieve mission impact. Her research explores how trust based strategic networks that leverage resources in innovative ways to achieve mission impact can be created and managed.

"The past thirty years have witnessed a remarkable revolution in which entrepreneurs - people like Bob Swanson at Genentech, Steve Jobs at Apple, and Meg Whitman at eBay - have transformed the business landscape around the world. A parallel revolution of at least equal importance has taken place in the social sector in which tens of thousands of organizations have been created with social missions ranging from curing disease to improving education to alleviating global warming. But, how do these social ventures get going? How do they attract capital to launch and grow? How do they measure their performance? In short, how do they accomplish their mission? In Entrepreneurship in the Social Sector, Jane Wei-Skillern, James Austin, Herman Leonard, and Howard Stevenson provide insights into these issues by combining powerful frameworks for decision-making with detailed case studies on important social ventures. The book is helpful to those launching or managing such organizations and to those who support their efforts through donations and board membership. Society needs these ventures to succeed - all involved would benefit from reading this book."--William A. Sahlman (03/31/2009)
