"While most for-profit companies start with product and then subsequently segment customers based on profit potential (higher lifetime value and lower acquisition costs), the most successful nonprofits commit first to reaching an underserved population, which often includes higher acquisition costs and lower lifetime value. This unwavering focus on an underserved market segment, even when there are others who could benefit from the nonprofit’s programs, drives all aspects of the organization’s strategy, pushing successful nonprofits to design the best solutions for that customer’s situation.Trechos retirados de "What the Best Nonprofits Know About Strategy"
Compared with for-profit products and services, which are often proprietary and protected with secrecy, nonprofits frequently share data, processes, and ideas in ways that spark multiplier effects for the greater good. Open-source and volunteer models can be interpreted as weaknesses, but sophisticated nonprofit entrepreneurs turn this to their advantage.
For-profits embrace selling as an important aspect of financial sustainability. Nonprofits often view fundraising with dread, wanting instead to focus on fulfilling their mission. However, the most successful nonprofits think of fundraising like sales: They’re as thoughtful about the benefits to the funder as about those to the beneficiaries they serve, often creating mission-aligned products or experiences tailored to a specific type of funder. This is hard to do. Most for-profits are lucky if they can find product-market fit, and nonprofits need to find that fit for every new source of capital, without drifting from their mission. When done well, finding a sustainable funding source enables mission-minded leaders to focus on impact rather than an exit."
