Echoing Green is looking for their next crop of early-stage emerging social entrepreneurs. Are you thinking of starting a new project? They offer a helpful grant and plenty of support. Check out your eligibility. They do not support faith based initiatives but your social enterprise can have a spiritual base.
I had the privilege of being one of their Readers this year and read through a selection of amazing applications giving some thumbs up when I thought appropriate. I also attended The Feast Conference along with a few friends last year in New York - a fun and exciting one-day event for social entrepreneurs. The next one is Oct 14-16. I cant make it coz I will be in Cape Town, South Africa but I do highly recommend it.
