Business Development/Developing Sustainable Models

The transition away from grant funding is challenging on many levels, especially as it demands a more business-focused mindset. Developing a sustainable business model requires looking strategically at pricing products and services, identifying return on investment, and considering the financial viability of all endeavors. This segment of AF4Q programming provides resources on how to foster this business mindset and tools for reaching financial sustainability.
