What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.
I personally “Believe in Kingdom Transformation” because I know there is only ONE “Life for Significant”.

The Good Capitalist
December 2010
Issue: 18

2010 has been a big year for the social capital markets. The SOCAP conference sold out for the third year in a row, once again affirming that more organizations, influencers and capital providers are looking at different ways of moving money and making a difference. As we look to 2011, we are excited to expand to Europe with the first international SOCAP event to be held in Amsterdam May 30th-June 1st. We will take our first step towards the merging of public and private interest in social enterprise through a deep collaboration with the State Department (more details to come in the New Year). We thank you all for supporting our team as we have worked to provide a platform to showcase the innovative organizations and individuals who are doing amazing work in this space. We look forward to another year of pushing boundaries and expanding horizons.

Until then, Happy Holidays!
The Good Capital and SOCAP Team

Social Capital Market Lens

Definitions
By Kevin Jones
When I first entered the Social Capital Market nine years ago, I found myself suddenly on the board of the Social Enterprise Alliance, the association of non profits working on building businesses and services to create earned income to support their mission. The organization had recently been decimated by a bloody fight between the founders over the definition of social enterprise. Billy Shore of Shared Interest, the godfather of cause marketing had not agreed with where the group had drawn the line, and Charles King of Housing Works had been left to pick up the pieces and lead the group forward. >>>Read more.

Broken Markets, Mending Myths
By Kevin Jones
An important step in bridging the gap between the philanthropic capital market and the social capital market took place at the recent SOCAP10 conference. Both sides met, as if they were trade delegations from a foreign land, entering the market at the intersection of money and meaning and each pitching its tent, like a market on the Black Sea at the end of the silk road. >>>Read more.

Sails of Consciousness
By Frank van Beuningen
When you come to Amsterdam in May for SOCAP Europe, you will know that wind and sea are part of our lives here. And so I think this way of the social capital movement: a small sailboat has become a beautiful windjammer, the wind catches the sails of consciousness, and the tides are in our favor to get underway.
PYMWYMIC is honoured to partner with SOCAP, who come to Amsterdam with the great team that built the success of SOCAP Bay Area. >>>Read more
