We’re excited to announce that New Resource Bank was named to Bloomberg Businessweek’s list of 25 of America’s Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs. With your help, we can make it to the Top 5. Reader votes determine the winners, so we’re asking everyone we know to vote for us on the website. Please vote by July 12; the final list will be announced July 19.
To come up with the shortlist of contenders, the editors narrowed about 300 suggestions to 25 for-profit social enterprises with sufficient scope, impact, and ability to sustain themselves. We’re quite honored to be in such excellent company: local lights CarbonLighthouse, Hub Bay Area, Interschola, LaborVoices, SVTGroup and UniversityNow are also in the running.
