This Social Business top list of international development innovations suggests an increasing and curious crossover between that one field—as academic interdisciplinary field and also as industry—and social entrepreneurship. Increasingly, business is considered the (quick) fix to international development plagues even amidst a reliance on donations and aid-based relief that is at once ephemeral and eternal.

From green power microlending to youth-oriented finances and impact measurement for creatives, these international development innovations take the triple bottom line into consideration for their use and reuse of some familiar and unfamiliar ways of creating change. Whether or not there’s a reciprocal relationship between the two or rather, one is pulling on the other, is hard to tell but over time, the spaces will carve itself out.
