Fourth Sector/ Social Enterprise

Fourth Sector/ Social Enterprise

Social Enterprise and Social Entrepreneurs, sometimes referred to a “fourth sector” of the economy (added to the private, non-profit, and public/ governmental sectors) consists of private business enterprises that serve primarily social or public purposes. This is a growing segment of the economy, and a newly developing field of the law.

Consistent with Ms. Barnhart’s commitment to client and community service, a part of Barnhart Law PLC’s practice focuses on serving socially responsible, sustainable, and community service oriented businesses – primarily in the technology (including information, communication and health care technology) and renewable energy sectors. This includes social enterprise entrepreneurs, companies serving charitable causes, and companies in the emerging “Fourth Sector.”

For news and updates on this emerging Fourth Sector, as well on non-profit and corporate social responsibility (CSR) developments, please see our PublicPurposeBusinessLaw Blog.
