The goal of Progress Through Business and the Center on Business and Poverty is to support innovative writing for Progress Daily and community projects related to employers who participate in social enterprise. The Center on Business and Poverty is an initiative of the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Letters and Science.  While the Center on Business and Poverty is a university-based group (the think tank), Progress Through Business is the organization that accomplishes our work (the do tank)

The mission of both organizations is focused on:

  • Writing guest editorials for Progress Daily and other online publications about social enterprise
  • Posting daily articles for our website Progress Daily
  • Through syndication and copying, our pieces are seen weekly in as many as 30 periodicals
  • Helping run online financial literacy and free tax preparation programs for employers
