Social Innovation Networking

The Skoll Foundation Fosters Entrepreneurs Worldwide

— October 3, 2010 — Social Good
In 1999, former eBay President Jeff Skoll envisioned a nonviolent, sustainable and thriving world. With that vision in mind, he created the Skoll Foundation, based in Silicon Valley, California, with a stated mission “to drive large-scale change by investing in, connecting and celebrating social entrepreneurs and other innovators dedicated to solving the world’s most pressing problems.”

The Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship, which are accorded annually, provide financial support for social entrepreneurs worldwide. In 2003, the Skoll Foundation launched the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, which focuses on research and education and is a vital network for social entrepreneurs to connect with each other.

The Skoll Foundation focuses on a wide range of crucial social problems and issues, including peace and security, economic and social equity, tolerance and human rights, health, environmental sustainability and institutional responsibility. “I want to live in a world where healthy communities flourish and where individuals are given the opportunity to use their talents and abilities to achieve their full potential,” says Jeff Skoll.

One of its most practical programs is Social Edge, an online community where social entrepreneurs and philanthropists can network, share resources, discuss social innovation issues and inspire each other to evoke change in the world.

The Skoll Foundation also promotes social entrepreneurship through media content. It has partnered with media organizations including the Sundance Institute, the PBS Foundation Social Entrepreneurship Fund and Rockhopper TV to allow journalists and filmmakers to showcase stories of social innovation and ensure public awareness of this growing sector.

The Skoll Foundation’s comprehensive approach has allowed it to become one of the pioneers of social entrepreneurship worldwide.
