Harvard Business School's Social Enterprise Conference
HBS's student-run Social Enterprise Conference is the top event in the country for Social Enterprise. 2010 was again a great experience with dozens of emerging and established for-profit,
non-profit, and other non-government organizations committed to the greater good. The 2010 theme was "New Frontiers: Redefining Service". Philanthropist.org's Co-Founder Jeff Brewer (HBS '08) first pitched the philanthropist.org concept in the 2006 "Pitch for a Change" competition. Philanthropist.org's made the final stage that year but did not take Gold. We've participated each year since and 2010 Video from Co-Founder Eric Melin will be available via our YouTube Channel - we are looking forward to 2011!
philanthropist.org is a Micro-Finance technology platform which allows everyday people to function as philanthropists (small scale donors and socially-minded investors) to directly and efficiently interface with workerteers (entrepreneurs and volunteers) for the purpose of small dollar transactions with maximum efficiency and minimal transactional overhead.
