Echoing Green, one of my favorite social enterprise groups, just let me know that they are looking for their 2012 crop of Fellows to support next year. They are hoping more women will apply this year, and also internationals, minorities. Check it out on their blog.
They had 3000 applicants last year and only 20 got a grant so its pretty tough competition. And I should know because I was one of the evaluators for the grants. However, knowing me or reading my blog will not get you any brownie points at EG so start working on your application. Apply between Dec 5, 2011 and Jan 9, 2012.
