18 Social Entrepreneurship Guides

From Online Upcycling to Sustainable Tourism Maps

— May 15, 2013 — Social Good
The social entrepreneurship guides in this top list include two broad and sometimes overlapping types of ventures and how they use how-to methods and programs. The first has to do with adhering to specific environmental and/or social guidelines, for instance, Alternative Apparel, is a popular fashion company that has a wordy (and I mean wordy) section on their website of the vendor guidelines. The second has an even broader scope and doesn't have to do with how specific companies create their own internal social entrepreneurship guides necessarily and more has to do with fostering community and support across businesses and organizations.

Of course, guides and how-tos can only go so far. Initiatives that take on a "one size fits all" approach, even if they're invested in creating replicable models, tend to lose crucial elements between the cracks.
