The goal of Progress Through Business and the Center on Business and Poverty is to support innovative writing 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 is a university-based group (the think tank), Progress Through Business is an NGO and is the organization that accomplishes our work in communities (the do tank).

The mission of both organizations is focused on:

  • Writing guest editorials for Progress Daily and online publications about social enterprise
  • Posting weekly articles for Progress Daily.
  • Helping run online financial literacy and free tax preparation programs for employers
  • Supporting companies assisting low income employees in inner cities around the world
