Biztopia is the newest tool lauched by GOOD.is to help people in the business of social entrepreneurship. This new, interactive microsite aims to help social entrepreneurs by providing information and perspectives on the world of social enterprise. Building on the success of the GOOD Business Social Enterprise hub, Biztopia is hoping to be part of the movement to redefine how business is done.
The microsite offers three main types of resources. First, there are exclusive videos profiling social entrepreneurs, from a prosthetic maker who dreams of amputees being able to surf and snowboard to a recycling guru who can turn trash into paper. One of the success stories you’ll find through Biztopia is the Forage Kitchen in San Francisco, an all-in-one space where food entrepreneurs can produce their goods legally, get ideas for how to improve their business, and find support from other food entrepreneurs.
Next, you’ll see an infographic that breaks down the basic hows and whys of the social enterprise sector. And third, there’s a news feed that pulls in all the latest headlines from the GOOD Business Social Enterprise hub.
There’s also a Social Enterprise Guide, which includes curated lists of GOOD social entrepreneur investigations into the most successful companies and people, as well as enterprises that have struggled and failed.
“Where passion is the bottom line” is the Biztopia motto reflecting the personal commitment and appetite with which social entrepreneurs approach both profitability and making the world better. It’s a great site full of inspiration and valuable information useful for just about any social entrepreneur. Check out their video and then explore the site to learn more!
