The Social Innovators Collective

The Collective was born in 2010 when a handful of New York-based social entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders realized that we were dealing with strikingly similar challenges, and that by leveraging our collective resources and insight we could overcome those challenges. As future world-changing leaders we saw we needed to sharpen our skills, have easy access to information and collaborate with others who were equally driven to create tangible positive impact.

Currently, we connect through an online forum, workshops, social events and Mastermind Sessions. Mastermind Sessions are face-to-face meetings attended by founders and leaders of social enterprise and nonprofit organizations. Founders introduce their venture with a focus on the most pressing issues they are facing and other members give structured feedback as well as recommendations to overcome them.
