Hey everyone! I would like to propose the idea of having a meetup of sorts for people who are involved in or interested in social entrepreneurship in the Gainesville area. This can be existing profit or non profit start-ups, investors looking to fund more 'social' ventures, people with ideas for new initiatives, and other folks interested in the idea of doing social good through creative innovation.
It would be a time where we could share ideas and hear news on what people are up to, and most especially meet each other in person... I just feel like moving beyond a simple message board to something more dynamic.
So, if this sounds interesting to you and you would be up for a meetup (think coffee and/or drinks) sometime in December 2011, please reply with an affirmative comment!
I am all for this. It's interesting timing, too -- I feel like I am meeting a lot of people who are interested in talking more about social entrepreneurship.
Would also be glad to grab coffee with you to get to know you and brainstorm.
Depending on the timing of the outing, I may also be interested. -Jim
Are you still interested in social innovation, to help all? Thomas
