We all get by with a little help from our friends. Engine for Social Innovation is one our Minnesota Rising 2011 Un/Conference Network Partners and is a great example of that. They provide a revolutionary way for talented professionals and nonprofits to work together by enhancing the capacity of nonprofits while professionals develop their skills, network and civic engagement! And now, they've got an ask for you, friends. See below for a request from Jim Delaney, who heads up Engine's efforts in social innovation.
The United Way has set out on an important and ambitious project to support social enterprises in the Twin Cities. They have asked Engine for Social Innovation to start by helping to define what a social enterprise is and then to find all of the social enterprises operating in the Twin Cities. We are working on this project in collaboration with Social Venture Partners and Social Enterprise Alliance to cast a wide net.
