When you succeed, the world succeeds
Happy New Year!
So here is the thing! After nearly 9 years of pushing the social innovation agenda, toiling to define social enterprise, pushing policy, and challenging the sector to think outside the box, they are finally catching up with us!
It's kind of cool to see the shifts in the world since CSI started. Now we have social innovation in the media, whole publications focused on social enterprise, banks winning impact investing awards, funders creating funding envelopes focused on social ventures, and ministers desperately looking for brilliant social finance strategies. We sure have come a long way. But this is no time to sit on our laurels. Now is the time to crank up the volume.
2012 was an intense year of growth and change for CSI. We opened CSI Regent Park, and started the intense process of opening a space in New York City @ Starrett-Lehigh.
2013 is going to be
amazing. We are working on some exciting projects that I hope will make your
life that much more impactful. We are more motivated than ever to help you accelerate
Fundamentally, CSI is a platform - an ecosystem really - offering culture and tools that are there to help you to do your work better. Why? Because we so deeply believe that your work matters. We believe that when you succeed, the world succeeds. That's why we do what we do.
