Database of Social Entrepreneurs From Social Edge
Posted by Allison Fine on February 23, 2010
Exciting news over at Social Edge. They have just released a widget for a searchable database of vetted social entrepreneurs. I imagine happy chirty sounds coming from Lucy Bernholz’s boggy part of the world! According to the web announcement:
“This open source database is available to anyone who wishes to query, syndicate, or republish the data on their own websites. To make it super simple, we have created widgets so anyone can search and add a real-time list of social entrepreneurs to their webpage.”
A few things of interest in this announcement. A group of funders working together to share their databses of people and organizations in whom they’ve invested is a welcome development. Making the database sharable through the widgets is a great idea. And enabling social entrepreneurs to connect with one another by geography or issue area is an important step in the creation of a more cohesive field.
