In March of last year, one Social Business published an interview with the Executive Director of Global Goods Partners, Jennifer Gootman. In it, she discussed a bit of what the day-to-day is like as a social entrepreneur based in New York, as well as her inspiration sources, career path and creative rituals.
SocialBusiness.org is long overdue for a business profile of this registered non-profit organization. Essentially, the idea and working of this business model is simple. Through a website and online store, Global Goods Partners allows women in various countries around the globe to sell their handmade and fair trade goods. The website was founded in 2005 and is part of a larger community and business initiatives, like Barb Stegemann's The 7 Virtues for example, that melds social business, women and international development.
