Top Resources for Social Entrepreneurs and Social Entrepreneurship Ventures

Best Resources for Social Entrepreneurs, Creative Capitalists, and Servant Entrepreneurs

As I mentioned before, I’m rather fascinated by social entrepreneurship, solutions for the base of the pyramid, and would like to find opportunities in the area. So, I decided to compile a list of the top resources for aspiring social entrepreneurs. It includes resources, tools, educational and networking opportunities.

Introduction to Social Entrepreneurial Resources Online 

If you have a suggestion for the list, feel free to drop the name and the link in the comments section. For instance, if you are a social entrepreneurial blogger. If I get five or more resources in the comments, I will make an additional post with links. Otherwise, what are your thoughts about social entrepreneurial ventures?
