About 2/2: Relationship with the Skoll Foundation: While Social Edge is sponsored by the Skoll Foundation, Social Edge has no connection to its grantmaking programs. Participation in Social Edge is not a factor in the Foundation’s grant application and recommendation process. Also, opinions expressed in Social Edge may not reflect the Skoll Foundation’s opinions. And conversely.

A Little History: Social Edge launched in June 2003 with the mission to:

  • Connect social entrepreneurs, their partners and allies to discuss cutting-edge issues shaping the field;
  • Foster frank dialogue, mutual respect and a sense of community among all in the sector;
  • Promote learning from the best, promising and disastrous practices.

Social Edge has become a site where social entrepreneurs, philanthropists and other practitioners of the social benefit sector connect to network, learn, inspire and share resources. The site strikes a balance between the visionary and the practical, with its spirited discussions and online workshops and features.

Social Edge has an audience of tens of thousands of social entrepreneurs around the world; it is particularly targeted at social entrepreneurs with limited access to other local resources and practitioners due to the nature of their work (e.g., international development) or their location (e.g., developing countries or in rural areas).
