Weekly Social Impact Roundup: January 16, 2018

I’m thrilled to begin a regular series updating you on the top stories, news, and trends in the world of impact entrepreneurship. Give me your suggestions and comments on what to share in future instalments!

1. Tell your story to the world 

Next Billion, one of the most read blogs in the industry and they want your stories. Prep your story and make sure you add a link to your website, and I’d include a video if you can too. Submissions go to James Militzer <jamesmil@umich.edu>, and I’m happy to review anything before you share. James says any one organization can submit up to four stories per year, and I recommend making a habit of sharing updates with the press when you can, as press leads to awareness, and awareness leads to investors and customers.

2. Publications to stay current on all things impact:

Adding to Next Billion, a couple of publications that should be on your radar if that aren’t already would include Conscious company and Stanford Social Innovation Review. If you want a sample start-up disrupting investigative journalism, it’s worth looking at Discourse Media and their approach to the Canadian market. 

3. Impact Company profile: Thrive Studio

Thrive Studio is a global organization supporting female artists as they navigate the path to making a career with their artistic gifts. Mastermind groups, events, and Thrive Talks form the foundation of the support they now provide to over 140 artists around the world. Their next intake for Mastermind is open now.

4. Free webinar on funding non-profits from Stanford Social Innovation

Funding a non-profit social enterprise can be as hard, or harder, than funding a startup. This interactive session on January 31st will be great opportunity to get up-to-date learnings and trends in an interactive online session. Details and sign-up HERE.
