    • Illinois, the Delaware of Social Enterprise: What the Right Public Policies Can Mean for the Success of Your Social Enterprise

      Social Enterprise attorney Marc J. Lane, who drafted Illinois’ Low-profit Limited Liability Company (L3C) law, went on to draft the Executive Order creating the Governor’s Task Force on Social Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Enterprise, which he chaired, and the Ordinance establishing the Cook County Commission on Social Innovation, which he currently serves as Vice Chair. The Task Force was charged with incubating actionable, data-driven social policy recommendations for the Governor, the State’s departments and agencies, and the General Assembly. The Commission does the same for the Cook County Board and the County’s agencies and departments. Marc will explain exactly how the State and the County came to embrace their respective roles as agents of change and leaders by example; and how the Social Enterprise community and the evolving Social Impact Ecosystem are benefiting from the Task Force’s and the Commission’s innovative work as conveners, catalysts and collaborators.
