Today, I’m adding a new category, “SoCent Central.”
I have about 6 weeks of scouting left and my number one task is to discover more social companies. We ask everyone we speak with – entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, academics, NGO staff, government officials, and many others – to recommend companies. Some of the companies that we have been referred to in the past and many of the companies that we will be recommended in the weeks to come will be featured in this category.
In addition to asking friends and fellow socent enthusiasts for recommendations, I’m taking my search to the internet. Over the next few weeks I will pour through lists of competition winners, databases of green companies, and pitch websites for Turkish socents – and occasionally, a regional socent that is too interesting not to feature.
Wish me luck and enjoy!
