To mark our 30th anniversary, we’re taking stock of lessons learned, how these insights inform our work, and ways we can contribute to social transformation over the next 30 years.
Summer of Social Entrepreneurship
Wow, we collectively thought, social entrepreneurs have been quite busy this summer. It seems like everywhere we turn, there's another incredible opportunity for our Fellows. So much so, Echoing Green is declaring the summer of 2012 the "Summer of Social Entrepreneurship."
Here's what we are talking about:
InVenture (Shivani Siroya and Bonnie Oliva, 2011) is named one of America’s Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs by BusinessWeek. Other Fellow nominees included Echoing Green-supported Carbon Lighthouse and Frogtek.

Generation Schools (Furman Brown, 2004) celebrates its second graduating class, and the African Leadership Academy (Christopher Bradford and Frederick Swaniker, 2006) celebrates their third graduating class.
