Jeff Sheinbein has over 12 years of experience in social enterprise management in the U.S. and abroad. He is the Founder and CEO of Social Imprints (SI), a full service custom printing company located in San Francisco, California. His mission at SI works towards providing higher paying professional jobs to at-risk adults including ex-offenders, recovering drug addicts and economically challenged individuals. While most social enterprises focus on offering lower-paying transitional jobs in production and assembly, Jeff created a company that provides high-functioning at-risk applicants with white-collar career opportunities in management, sales, marketing, and customer service.
He is the former managing director of AI, a non-profit screen printing and embroidery company that continues to hire from the same at-risk adult population as Social Imprints.
Under Jeff's leadership, that organization became one of the country's most successful nonprofit enterprises of its size, and one of the most profitable businesses in the screen printing industry. It gained significant publicity through coverage by TV, newspapers, and magazines, including KRON-TV, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Impressions magazine.
Leveraging his success with non-profits, Jeff was hired by the Community Action Network in London to replicate his successful business model there. While in the UK, he traveled throughout the country, holding social enterprise workshops for hundreds of aspiring young British social entrepreneurs.
Jeff has had a successful second career as an independent consultant, helping nonprofits and social enterprises grow. His clients include Golden Gate Community Inc., The Body Positive, ShareForward, East West Holistic Center, and the Borders Books Free Classes Program.
