Social Enterprise Greenhouse creates positive social and economic impacts by supporting social entrepreneurs and enterprises with the tools and networks they need to thrive. We are a network of business and community leaders who contribute time, expertise and money to create jobs and support positive change through social enterprise.
In six years, we’ve increased our portfolio ventures from 10 to more than 400 and helped create more than 1,200 jobs in our region. Our ventures have improved the lives of nearly 1,000,000 people in a myriad of ways including job training, educational interventions, and financial literacy training. In addition, we continue to offer our award winning programs for building business acumen in the social enterprises we serve: 1) 101 Workshop; 2) Accelerator; and 3) Forum peer support group.
In 2015, we opened Rhode Island’s first social enterprise co-working and education space, and within the year we added a second floor suite of dedicated offices, desks, and another multipurpose meeting room. The SEG Hub, located in Davol Square, is a shared home to our staff and over 85 social enterprises.
Our work would not be possible without the amazing commitment of our partners and volunteers.
