Fast Company recognized Portalnd State University's Social Innovation Incubator among the nation's boldest ideas.
A feature in Fast Company highlights Portland State University's Social Innovation Incubator as part of a virtual tour of what the magazine calls the "United States of Innovation."
PSU's Social Innovation Incubator, launched last year, was recognized for its "Circuit Program," which provides six months of startup assistance to five new social entrepreneurs each year.
The incubator offers services including business consulting, coaching, assistance from MBA students, networking and workshops. Companies in the incubator include Preciva, which last month won $3,000 at a socially responsible business plan competition, Sustainable Harvest, Central City Concern and Tipping Bucket.
Fast Company feted SII founder Cindy Cooper as one of 51 "brilliant urbanites who are helping to build the cities of America's future."
Cooper and SII joined the likes of Chris Martin, founder of Washington-based company Dumpster-Free Alleys and Justin MacNaughton, owner of GreenCar Hawaii.
