    NEW YORK, NEW YORK — Echoing Green (EG), a global nonprofit whose flagship program identifies and supports emerging entrepreneurs who are establishing social change organizations, works across geographies, sectors and social enterprise models. The grant supports a project to study the capital needs of start-up social entrepreneurs, drawing upon data from for-profit businesses that have been launched with EG. Outputs will include: (1) a report  that analyzes the capital needs of EG-supported social entrepreneurs, identifies their critical financing challenges and recommends potential solutions; and, (2) a roadmap for EG to create a capital accelerator program for its Fellows. EG intends to broadly share the findings and recommendations through an industry convening.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Echoing Green $50,000 between 1978 and 2017.
