What has been on my green/ impact marketing radar this week. An interesting project kicked off in Canada – Social Finance which coincided with the announcement by Kickstarter that they are ready to expand to Canada. Crowdfunding for social purposes will become a hot topic over there.
Speaking of social enterprise funding, I read a story with an interesting angle on how charities may want to develop social enterprise strategies and launch pilots, if they want to compete for impact dollars.
I learned that the Institute of Fundraising in the UK celebrated thirty years of championing excellence in fundraising, and read with interest about the Fundraising Cycle.
Closer to my current home, I’ve found out about an upcoming Green Marketing conference in Belgium in October. It’s a must attend. Their Speakers section makes an interesting read. I was particularly impressed by John Grant whose Green Manifesto I plan to check out soon.
