Crowdfunded Social Innovator Sites

‘StartSomeGood’ Grows Purpose-Driven Initiatives

— July 15, 2011 — Social Good
It’s great to see more and more initiatives popping up like StartSomeGood that support social entrepreneurs around the world. StartSomeGood is a platform for crowdfunding that is tailored specifically toward social innovators. Because many social entrepreneurs lack the funding and resources they need for their idea to grow and become sustainable, initiatives like these are important so that we can see social enterprise, as a sector or a movement (or whatever you want to call it) prosper.

StartSomeGood’s reach is wide considering it’s partnered with some of the biggest names in social entrepreneurship including AshokaU, Ashoka’s Youth Venture, School for Social Entrepreneurs and Compass Partners. Thus, from crowdfunding to partnerships, StartSomeGood’s work is all about collectivity and networking -- and the power of working together is infectious.

The campaigns on StartSomeGood are from a diverse array of social enterprises, for-profits and non-profits that are both short-term and long-term. Furthermore, according to their website, StartSomeGood allows all social good initiatives to “stand side-by-side and raise support on the basis of their innovation and potential impact, rather than tax status.” However, StartSomeGood’s focus is on social enterprises because of their ability to create sustainable and long-lasting change. Aside from simply financial capital, intellectual capital is also available for social entrepreneurs who need professional services for their cause.

What about StartSomeGood’s own business model? To date, they are self-described as a “socially-conscious for-profit” but plan to apply to become a B Corporation in the future. Ranging from ventures to campaigns, the content on StartSomeGood contains some of the most inspiring and innovative initiatives one can come across.
