My inbox is full of stories on social enterprise. This week I'd like to highlight some specific cases in social entrepreneurship, so in the meantime, here are a number of links to stories I'm trying to clean out, but are worth listing anyway.
*Non-profit manufacturer KickStart is tapping into Africa's endless supply of human energy to help poor farmers reap the fruits of their labour.
*Social enterprises head where other firms fear to tread.
*Is social enterprise is poised for a wave of growth similar to that seen in private equity over the past 30 years?
*Fed up with watching rotting produce eat into their small profits, smallholder Kenyan farmers are starting to find a way to tap into lucrative international grocery markets.
*Social enterprises in the former coalfield areas of Wales are benefiting from grant funding.
*Boosting self-reliance in Hong Kong.
*Protests over redevelopment of WWII bunker to be used for training unemployed in the UK.
