Bruce Levenson, a renowned businessman and former owner of Atlanta Hawks, delved into the non-profit industry after selling the NBA franchise. He contributed the initial funds in support of the Do Good Institute at the University of Maryland. The mission of this program is to reach out to students who are pursuing their undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland and introduce them to the world of volunteering and non-profit business. The institute seeks to establish the next generation of non-profit business heads and make them competitive against their colleagues in the private sector. So far, the initiative has had remarkable success.
Speaking to PR Newswire, Levenson said that over the years, they established that different organizations were under the leadership of outstanding individuals who could not accomplish the set mission. This is because the leaders lacked crucial business skills to make such companies successful. To this end, Levenson and his wife, Karen, presented their idea to the University of Maryland. The two seeded $75 million while the state of Maryland donated $20 million towards the noble initiative. The first class was taught Philanthropy 101. The program included a lab component where students were provided $10,000 to give to a charity of their choice. The class became an instant hit in the school.
Inaugurated in 2010, the program has been gaining considerable traction. The objective of this program is to attract students who are passionate about giving back to the society. Moreover, the initiative has been successful in developing the next wave of non-profit entrepreneurs. For instance, a former student, Ben Simon, co-established the Food Recovery Network. Notably, the student-managed waste prevention movement runs under the Do Good Institute’s umbrella. In addition, Ben established Imperfect Produce, a program that offers consumers access to various products at a discount.

Jason Halpern is known as the Founder and the Principal of JMH Development, a major real estate firm based in New York. He is predominantly known for his innovative ways to renovate buildings in historic places without losing its value. Halpern and JMH contribute to nature by protecting the existing ones and reducing the harnessing of natural resources or polluting the environment.

Halpern and his team have renovated a number of projects, in which, some of them are more than a century old.
The prominent one is 184 Kent, a waterfront warehouse originally constructed in 1913. JMH Development converted this building located in Brooklyn to a 340 unit luxury apartment for rental. Halpern was very specific to retain the historical integrity of the building, and his efforts have paid well as the building is currently on the National Register maintained for Historic Places.

The Traveling Vineyard is a company that sells wine through a national network of independent Wine Guides. Each Wine Guide is in control of their business and determines how often, when, and where they work.
The role of a Wine Guide is to arrange wine tastings in a client’s home which provide them and their guests with the opportunity to try out some of Traveling Vineyard’s wine selection. After the event, the client and guests can sign up to have their favorites shipped to their home on either a one-time or regular basis.
As an independent contractor, Wine Guides are free to set their schedule and work as much or as little as they desire. While some become Wine Guides just to pick up some extra money for gifts and vacations, others make it their full-time career. An ambitious Wine Guide can even develop their own network of Wine Guide’s working for them further propelling their professional success.
When becoming a Wine Guide, the applicant receives a Success Kit in the mail which includes everything they need to get started. The kit includes sign up forms, marketing material, wine accessories, traveling containers, wine tasting glasses, and enough bottles of wine for their first two wine tastings. The Success Kit also contains a cheat sheet to the wines in order to help the Wine Guide’s knowledge about them. Traveling Vineyard also operates an online training program which not only teaches Wine Guides more about wine but also tips and guidelines to running a successful business.
