This “map app” finds social enterprises that are nearby, in other cities, or online. It provides information about their products, their social impact and their location, and can be used with any major PC or Mac browser except Internet Explorer. Social Impact App also works on iPhones and some Androids, using the phone’s browser. The goal is to expand the market for social enterprises, by making it easy for socially-minded customers to find them. Social Impact App is now on the web.
The Social Impact App includes social enterprises from 11 countries, with most businesses in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, and Australia. They have about 1000 listings so far (mostly retail at this point), and have ambitious plans to increase that number to 3000+ in 2013 and 5000 in 2014.
Look for mobile versions of the Social Impact App in your app store.
