Follow the social enterprise tweets for new revenue-generating ideas

By Janine Vanderburg

You could just sit around and wait for economic stimulus funding to help your nonprofit organization out of its current slump. Or—you could track what innovative social enterprises are doing across the world to ramp up their revenues through mission-related earned income activities.

Last year, when I attended/presented at the Social Enterprise Alliance conference, every hour and session yielded dozens of new ideas for using community resources to raise more money, create more jobs and otherwise help nonprofits achieve their mission.

This year, instead of driving everyone insane with random emails—”You need to know about this new idea”—I’m going to use my newly founded twitter account to do a running commentary on new ideas, programs and resources coming from this week’s conference in New Orleans.

If you’d like to track the latest and greatest, go to one of these two Twitter sites:

Click here for the JVA Consulting site, where I’ll post comments and Web site links to new ideas and programs from the sessions and people I meet with. The updates can also be seen on JVA’s Web site.

Click here for my personal site, where I’ll post comments on the behind the scenes stuff that people are talking about
