Agreed. It is an exciting turn of events in philanthropy and agreed that we need a "new" model of philanthropy to achieve sustainable results. But, as far as my research has taken me to date, I see this being merely a concept, a "mot de jour" that sounds interesting, different and trendy. But, where is the business model? We need a business model to move this from a concept phase, where it is currently, to a framework that works!
