Where We Live: Deb Heinrich
17,000 non-profits in Connecticut and one non-profit liaison to the Governor
Our recent conversation with Robert Egger, the social enterprise pioneer, got us thinking more about the role of non-profits in the state. In fact, he thinks Connecticut has a leg up in the way it thinks about the non-profit sector, having appointed Deb Heinrich, a former state lawmaker, to the job as “liason” earlier this year. We sat down earlier this week with Heinrich to talk about “social enterprise” and the scope of her work for Governor Malloy.
