Here are some definitions, for those new to the scene.
While at the Harvard Kennedy School in the fall of 2017, I was working on the project to move it from a back-burner into a real state of motion. I am building the model, the description, and the research to be able to pitch it to some social venture funders.
In working with Carl Byers, Associate Professor and instructor of MLD-829 (Entrepreneurial Finance) at the Kennedy School, I have developed the idea further. The main suggestion he has had is to split the property management company from the real estate holding company. That way there could be more of a for-profit side managing things and the non-profit side would hold the properties in trust, and/or acquire and receive them.
