About Social Entrepreneurs, Inc.

Like the organizations that we support, Social Entrepreneurs, Inc. (SEI) is mission-driven. In all aspects of our practice, we seek to improve people’s lives by helping organizations realize their potential. For more than 20 years, SEI has empowered service organizations, partnering with them to build their management and operations systems to better serve their constituents and communities. We serve nonprofit community service providers, state and local governmental agencies, foundations, and associations throughout the United States.

SEI’s experienced project managers invest in creating lasting relationships and developing a clear understanding of a client’s needs before moving forward with any project. In this way, we ensure the outcomes and final products are tailored to each client’s unique situation and presented in actionable, digestible formats.

SEI approaches each project with a focus on quality, continually striving to bring our clients the best practices from the nonprofit, public, and business sectors.

Our guiding principles are at the core of our practice. Clients see these principles in action in the way they are treated, in the high-quality services and products they receive, and in the significant value that each team member actively seeks to add to every interaction. We take great pride in the impact our work has on the lives of children, seniors, families, and entire communities.

SEI’s guiding principles:
• Maintain the highest standards of integrity and professional ethics,
• Uphold every commitment made by a SEI associate, every time,
• Set the standard for high-quality management support, and
• Ensure that clients receive significantly greater benefit than what they invest in SEI.

SEI has worked on over 675 projects and assisted over 225 nonprofit service providers, state and local governmental agencies, foundations, and state and local associations.
