Seeking Nominations: America’s Best Social Entrepreneurs

February 19, 2009

 Call for nominations ends on Feb. 20, 2009.

Top 25 will be profiled by Business Week and voted on by the public. BusinessWeek is launching its inaugural search for the most promising social entrepreneurs in the U.S. We are looking for companies that aim to both turn a profit and solve social problems. To do so, we’re asking for your suggestions of for-profit companies based in the U.S. that are tackling social problems in new and innovative ways here or abroad. Concepts are great, but we insist that companies that warrant coverage have been in operation for at least one year.

What do we need from you? Send us your nominations using the form on this page and tell us why the particular company you have in mind stands out. Tell us what it does, what it has achieved so far, and explain what sets it apart. Our reporters and editors will also be scouring the field. When the call for nominations ends on Feb. 20, 2009, our staff and a few renowned members of the business and the social enterprise community will sift through the nominees and narrow the selection down to 25 finalists. Then we’ll profile each of them and have you vote for the company you think holds the most promise, from Apr. 3 to Apr. 26, 2009. On May 2, we’ll announce the five top vote-getters.
