FYI: Fast Company magazine is adding to the year-in-review mania with one that’s actually interesting: the top 20 social entrepreneurs of 2003. Such organizations are, in Fast Company’s words, “neither idealistic dreamers nor neo-hippie do-gooders,” but sustainable businesses that are dedicated to social change. Three New York shops make the list of profiles: New Leaders for New Schools, a principal-training program that Alexander Russo profiled in the May 2003 issue of City Limits magazine; Witness, a group of human rights videographers; and Brooklyn-based Working Today, which offers health insurance for part-time and contract workers.
