An enterprise is an organization of people, money, and expertise coming together to create something of value— typically goods and services. Sometimes the value being produced has a market demand with a high enough dollar value to allow that enterprise to operate as a for-profit. In other circumstances, the good or service provided doesn’t have the same level of profitability—for example, it’s intended to serve people who can’t pay—and the enterprise that provides that good or service operates as a nonprofit (that is, subsidized by donations) or as a government agency (that is, subsidized by taxes).
Investing with the overall needs of an enterprise in mind promotes the resilience that enterprises and their leaders require to succeed. We think the best impact comes from enterprises of all types that are stable, well managed and well capitalized.
