Ashoka's Roundup of Social Entrepreneurship News

Each week, the blog team at Ashoka posts This Week in Social Entrepreneurship, a roundup of articles about “individuals and organizations creating systematic and lasting change through social entrepreneurship and enterprise.” This week’s column includes information about the 2010 Echoing Green fellowship recipients; a nonprofit highlighting local changemakers in Haiti; and, in the midst of World Cup fever, the Changing Lives Through Football competition, among many other great links.

We’ll be following this column closely because when we launch our brand new website this fall, social entrepreneurs will be able to create accounts and begin listing job opportunities, resources, and much more. Idealist has long been a place that welcomes nonprofits and community groups to post their opportunities for action. We recognize that nonprofits are not the only outlet for creating change these days, and we are looking to expand the scope of our site and the opportunities available here. We see social enterprises as a great way to start. Expect more details as the launch date gets closer…
