#29: Non-profits vs. for-profits with Sabrina Konzok from Kiron Digital
April 21, 2022
As an entrepreneur, why would you want to have both a for-profit and non-profit organization?
It makes complete sense in many scenarios.
One of them is when a part of your company focuses on solving social problems.
Our guest - Sabrina Konzok, Managing Director at Kiron Digital Learning Solutions - knows the non-profit - for-profit transformation secrets as nobody else.
Together with her team, she started Kiron as a non-profit organization offering free online learning opportunities to refugees and underserved communities.

In the latest episode of the Founding Impact podcast, @Sabrina shared the story of this transition.
Together with Kasia and Maciej, they discussed how impact-driven organizations can follow this pattern and convert non-profits to for-profits (or the other way round) and explored the biggest challenges and possibilities.
