"This book offers a glimpse into the future. The companies it describes are pioneers, the first-movers in market shifts that will eventually become mainstream. These "hybrid organizations" - or what others call "values-driven" or "mission-driven" organizations - operate in the blurry space between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds. They are redefining their supply chains, their sources of capital, their very purpose for being; and in the process they are changing the market for others." --Book Jacket.
