Problem

In the past 50 years fewer than 200 non-profits crossed the $50M revenue barrier.

There is a social stigma to profit from helping others. It's 'ethical' to take a smaller paycheck to direct more funds to the needy. There is a $300,000 pay gap between private sector and non-profit executives. This creates a perverse choice between doing well for yourself and doing good for the world.
Philanthropists prefer their gifts go to the needy. It’s a difficult problem explaining that marketing benefits the needy. A donation that grows an organization can help tens, hundreds, or thousands more.
Risk is also heavily scrutinized. A Hollywood movie can cost millions and flop at the box office. If a charity CEO fails to deliver a return in a short period of time they may lose their career. Without the ability to take risks, entrepreneurs cannot generate innovation in the space.
Startups can take years before providing a return to their investors. Non-profits cannot pursue plans that effectively scale their organizations. If a non-profit project would take years to establish before funds would get to the needy you can anticipate character assassination.
Charities need funding to keep their organizations running but don't have access to traditional capital markets. They don't have access to funding required for innovation or taking risks. The non-profit sector is cut out of the multi-trillion dollar capital markets.

The way we think about charity is dead wrong
