Lately there have been some interesting connections with projects on social entrepreneurship and I wanted to drop three links here. Yesterday I met with folks at the Rainer Fellows program in San Francisco. They provide a formal framework, training, and mentorship for young social entrepreneurs engaged in health and conservation.
The National Peace Corps Association recently started a podcast series with the SocialEdge (a Skoll Foundation program) focusing on social entrepreneurs who served in the Peace Corps. Great interviews with former PCVs doing everything from transportation to civil society to conservation. The March 26th interview with Carl Pope, director of the Sierra Club and former Peace Corps Volunteer in India (1967-69) is engaging.
The Kiva.org folks are featured on the New York Times. Check out the Nicholas Kristof NYT video.
