The Social Innovation Incubator (SII) recently kicked off the 2012 Circuit Program, six months of workshops and expert mentoring for a group of local social entrepreneurs. The 2012 cohort includes five new members:

  • Bright Neighbor, an online sustainability platform that facilitates peer-to-peer borrowing and renting.
  • Cascadia Experience, which provides leadership, sustainability and conservation training for professionals through hands-on outdoor projects.
  • Elkarti, which markets handcrafted leather accessories to create employment and fund orphanages in Morocco.
  • Junk to Funk, an art-as-social-change organization that creates fashionable clothing out of trash.
  • Meditation Momma, an effort to demystify and encourage the use of meditation.

The Vector Program, offering tailored consulting for more established organizations, welcomed Ecozoom as a new member. Ecozoom is a certified B Corporation that reduces pollution and illness worldwide by designing, manufacturing, and distributing high-efficiency, low-cost cookstoves.
