64 Ethical Enterprise Networks

From Parisian Discount Supermarkets to Co-op Consultancies

— July 31, 2014 — Social Good
From Parisian discount supermarkets to co-op consultancies, these ethical enterprise networks are committed to fostering a sense that you're not alone. Often times with social enterprises, it's difficult to get started but also to galvanize the kinds of advice you need from not only the crowd, so to speak, but also experts and your peers. Both formal and informal networks -- which foster networking opportunities such as socials, conferences, workshops, pub nights, coffee dates and more -- can help not only to make individual ideas stronger but also impact the sphere of social entrepreneurship as a whole.

They say that you're only as strong as your weakest link and with ethical enterprise networks, everyone is pretty capable of strong changes.
