Social Innovation Forum

There’s an enormous ecosystem of Boston-area entrepreneurs who are launching or scaling social enterprises, whether non-profit or for profit. Today, I had lunch with the Social Innovation Forum, an organization with accelerator programs for both non-profits and for-profit social enterprises.

The accelerators give a ton of support to each cohort, including pitch coaches, consulting, executive coaching, board training and, of course, introductions to funders of various sorts. Some of the support is through their staff, some from volunteers and some through the events they host, which bring that whole ecosystem together. Cool program, which I might try to get more involved with. I would start with their Social Innovator Showcase on May 2, although right now I have a few conflicts for that date. It’s also pricy, but I’m pretty certain the funds will be well used.
