This research is exploratory in nature, purporting to develop a conceptual framework for not-for-profit startups that use intervention programs aimed at empowering at-risk inner city populations. The Timmons and Moore models of for-profit entrepreneurship were applied to our sample of four well researched not-for-profit startup case studies that met the necessary requirements. The Moore model was found to be more useful in considering the phenomenon of social entrepreneurship. The danger of falling into the trap of a hand-to-mouth existence due to a financing and staffing "treadmill" effect was observed. Issues for further research were identified and discussed.
