Today on CauseTalk Radio, Megan and I talk to Kathleen Janus, social entrepreneur, author and lecturer at Stanford University, about a great, new book: Social Startup Success: How the Best Nonprofits Launch, Scale Up, and Make a Difference.

On the show, Megan, Kathleen and I discuss:

Kathleen Janus, Author

  • You’ve written a book called Social Startup Success - can you tell us what the book’s about and what compelled you to write it?
  • You interviewed a huge numbers of nonprofits. Can you tell us what characteristics the successful ones share?
  • What lessons did you learn about nonprofits and corporate partnerships?
  • A big theme of your book is experimentation and testing. Why don’t more nonprofits take calculated risks?
  • You’ve written extensively about millennial and social causes. What can you tell us about millennials and the workforce when it comes to social good work?
  • What can companies learn from your work and this book?
  • Who do you hope reads your book? Who has the most to gain from reading it?
  • Corporate partnerships aside, can you give us a few examples of nonprofits doing just really innovative work?
