Goodnik is an organization dedicated to helping social entrepreneurs access the resources they need to be successful. We do this in several ways; first, we offer regular workshops on business skills and using technology in non-profit and socially responsible for-proft companies. Second we offer online resources to our members, who have access to webinars and other resources provided by our sponsors. Third, we help pair social entrepreneurs with professionals working in the private sector to provide free assistance in the areas of marketing, finance, software & web development, organizational planning, and other critical business skills necessary to launch a socially responsible enterprise. We partner with companies who are dedicated to socially responsible, sustainable business practices and encourage them to offer their resources to other organizations who do the same.
Goodnik is pleased to announce the expansion of the Goodnik in Residence program to two new locations; first, Nest near Union Square in Manhattan has opened a seat for us in their space. Ideal candidates would have an international, especially European/Russian, focus. We are also pleased to announce that the brand-new Made in New York Media Center has opened up space in their incubator as well. The Media Center is located in DUMBO, making it the first space in Brooklyn to participate in the Goodnik in Residence program. Ideal candidates for that space would be organizations working in the media space, especially in story-telling or similar arts. To apply for these or other Goodnik in Residence spots as they open up, fill out the application.
What are goodnikels? Nobody knows. Well, that’s not entirely true – at least a few people know. Suffice to say that it’s a new resource that will be available to Goodnik members, allowing them to access a host of professional services at no cost, and perhaps in the process completely change the way that social enterprise and nonprofit organizations work. Stay tuned for more details by signing up for the newsletter.
There’s lots going on at Goodnik – new programs launching, special events, workshops and hackathons, and much more to come in the next few months. To keep up to date with it all in one quick digest, just sign up for the newsletter below.
