The Share SocEnt Challenge

We believe in the transformative power of social enterprise.

We believe social enterprise is a dynamic, growing movement driving progress in justice, compassion and development worldwide. We also believe that, as social entrepreneurs, supporting one another is the best way to accelerate this progress and change the world.

That’s why we have launched our all-new member referral challenge. We want to grow and further support the social enterprise movement, so for every friend you refer who joins SEA, you will be eligible for special promotional opportunities.

Just pass on this link to social enterprise leaders you know who could benefit from joining SEA and invite them to become members today!

Q: Who should I refer to SEA?

A: Social entrepreneurs and social enterprise practitioners; enthusiasts and supporters of social enterprise; students interested in social enterprise; intermediary organizations that support the work of social enterprise (such as philanthropic institutions, legal, financial and consulting firms, media, academic institutions, etc).


Q: I have an organizational account (Social Enterprise or Sector Champion) with SEA, if I invite my co-workers to join SEA, does that count for this referral challenge?

A: No, your co-workers are part of your membership account and therefore would not be considered a new membership account for SEA. [With that said, you should still invite them to create sub-member accounts with SEA under your organization. To add or delete sub-members, the admin for your organization’s account should log in to the account dashboard and click the “Account” tab in the navigation bar. Under the “Organization” header, click the “Members” button. To delete a sub-member, click the “Delete” button next to that individual’s name. To add sub-members, enter their email address under the “Add Members” header to send an e-invitation. Users will receive an email prompting them to sign up and join the organization’s account on]


Q: What if I became a member after March 3rd but before May 15th, am I eligible to participate in this challenge?

A: Absolutely!
