The Social Enterprise Program Case Series

Columbia Business School graduate Andrea Wenner was at a crossroads in the fall of 2008 as she and her board considered the longer-term agenda for their successful social enterprise program, Out2Play. Out2Play had raised $17 million, enough to finish construction of 40 playgrounds and permit another 40 to be built throughout the five boroughs of New York City. In this case students consider the options for Wenner and Out2Play as she faces the classic phenomenon known as "Founder's Dilemma."
