Set during the years surrounding the market crash of 2000, Entrepreneurs Foundation (EF) is a strategy case that discusses a number of challenges facing non-profit managers, including 1) establishing a sustainable and self-supporting operating model, 2) generating corporate-sector support, and 3) managing through a financial crisis. The case begins in the boom times of the late nineties, and describes EF's innovative and profitable operating model based on leveraging stock appreciation in technology startup companies to fund community service programs. The case continues through the market crash of 2000, the near collapse of EF and its portfolio, and the restructuring led by EF's management in 2002.
