Winning Social Capitalists

I know that Fast Company's Social Capitalist Awards winners list has been out for a while, but I only recently had a chance to peruse the ventures.

There are a few mainstays:
ACCION International
Endeavor Global
Grameen Foundation
Teach for America

Among the recipients, there seems to be a very clear trend toward providing access to education in the United States and around the world.

I've come across Endeavor Global before and was very excited about their success and business model to help entrepreneurs in Latin America and Africa. Likewise, EcoLogic Finance provides support to coffee growing entrepreneurs.

(And, as per the earlier discussion about metrics, maybe the Nonprofit Finance Fund offers some insight...).
