In the late 1990s, Karen Mahlab AM decided she needed a change. After running a publishing company for 10 years, she felt the process of business for the sake of profit no longer inspired her.
Inspired by the growth of the internet, she wanted to create an online business that could bring together community and make a difference. Taking the Guide to Giving, which she had started under the Mahlab Group in 1990, as a ready revenue stream she created what she called a “social purpose business venture”.
She added Pro Bono News, which is now the number one news outlet for Australia’s social economy and has published over 15,000 articles.
