Podcast: When the goal is going out of business

With Nick Black, co-founder and chairman of Stop Soldier Suicide; CEO and founder of GoodUnited; MBA alumnus of Kenan-Flagler Business School  
Army veteran Nick Black’s entrepreneurial journey began when he moved into live combat just seven days into his first deployment. He learned to be part of a team and accomplish what seemed impossible. But after losing many friends and fellow service members to suicide over time – more than were lost to the enemy – he founded the nonprofit Stop Soldier Suicide to get service members the support they need. Black discusses how Stop Soldier Suicide thinks about its exit strategy: to find a solution so that the organization no longer needs to exist. Hear his perspectives on learning through failure, the difference between helping and solving, and why he launched a new venture called GoodUnited that allows other nonprofits to create meaningful experiences for every donor.
