3 Social Enterprise Funding Platforms Online That Can Help Your Start Up

3 Social Enterprise Funding Platforms Online That Can Help Your Start Up | Social Enterprises 6-6-14 | Scoop.it

Many aspiring social entrepreneurs feel the fear of starting up because of a lack of funding. Many social enterprises are underfunded and their financial sustainability, scalability and social impact is hampered. Fortunately, there have been recent trends to overcome this funding issue. One of the major trends that I am seeing for social entrepreneurship funding is the growth of online platforms that help support seed stage companies. I was excited to visit the websites of these online platforms, and was enthusiastic to see that many of them are using the Kiva model of crowd funding to help social entrepreneurs worldwide. (Thanks for the RT @giveo: Is your social enterprise a bit short of cash? 3 online funding platforms http://tiny.ly/uu4T #socent #business)
