In October, I participated in a marathon of virtual summits including 4 days at the Social Enterprise World Forum.

Here are some of my top pick of resources that I discovered that I’m sharing with you.


Talkin Bout A Revolution is a conversation with Jacqueline Novogratz (Acumen Fund) and David LePage (Buy Social Canada) – learn how your social enterprises are part of a revolution in new economic models that can change our world for the good.

Crowdfunding for Impact Projects & Organizations presented by Tom Dawkins (StartSomeGood) shares top myths, mistakes and tips for a crowdfunding campaign. Look for his 5 Hooks in Crowdfunding [39:13].​

The Pingree Mayor, Detroit’s First Sneaker is a new product made from leather reclaimed from the auto industry and manufactured by Veterans. I met the folks that are reviving Detroit with a hip new product. I’ve got to get me a pair!

Congratulations Cathay Clark (CASE) named a Social Innovation Thought Leader of the Year by the Schwab Foundation. We use the CASE curriculum in our Investment Lab for Social Enterprise course.

​I also shared a Virtual Marketplace Booth with Social Enterprise Alliance (US) and gave a talk on 5 Prerequisites Before You Seek Capital.

If you are interested in that topic, email me back and I determine when I can send a recording or recap.
