Social entrepreneurs: Fellows’ news Nov 07

There’s lots going on to discuss at present: the private sector: social enterprise debate is ongoing on a previous post, and the issue of scrutiny and measurement is causing a bit of a ruckus too (see Guardian article here); will discuss soon. From an SSE point of view, though, lots of news from Fellows to report as well. So here we go:

Roger Wilson-Hinds, of Screenreader fame, featured on David Wilcox’s excellent blog here (includes video interview) when they met at an e-democracy conference

– Jude Habib’s SoundDelivery has been spreading the web 2.0 love to non-profits; sign up for the newsletter…recent activity includes work with Breast Cancer Care, a homeless charity, and they are now on iTunes in the podcasts section

SSE is working with the Bain consultancy (via CAN) on a business plan competition; at least a dozen Fellows from around the SSE Network are entering (will report on this soon), with the prospect of bespoke 1:1 mentoring on offer….

– Diye Wariebi at Digibridge continues to go from strength to strength; he was in recently (giving IT advice to a current student), and said that, amongst much other activity, they now have a partnership with West Ham United….

– Michelle Baharier, at Cooltan Arts, is having a festive fair: good Xmas shopping…..

– Mike Felse, at Proud City, has let me know about the funding they have gained from v (the volunteering commission) as part of the vinvolved strand. The ACE Project (Active Citizenship Empowerment) will help 200 16-25 year-olds to take part in the iPAC programme (accredited by City and Guilds). Congrats to all there.

– Merlin Matthews at Re-Cycle is having an Xmas bike raffle to raise funds. More details on the SSE facebook group, or on Re-Cycle’s website.
