I’m going to help Ben Powell of Agora Partnerships and Jim Epstein of EFO Capital and Blue Ridge Produce create a council on civic innovation that operates out of the  Impact Hub DC. I’m going to map it like Zoe Schlag and her team at Unlimited US mapped the Austin social enterprise ecosystem on kumu.io and also use localwiki.org here to map another views of the ecosystem. Nobody has linked those two tools that I am aware of.

I think people will love being part of the project. We’ll map power and money relationships; funder, fundee, parent org, project, percentage of earned income, impact metrics used, geographic impact, sector, funding sources, revenue model, imagined-growth-path/ projections. We will offer access to Acumen’s  lean data tools and seminars, etc as well as the Social Progress Index.
