Last week, GoodBiz113 gave its readers a heads-up re the voting deadline in BusinessWeek's annual endeavor to identify leading social entrepreneurs ["April 26: Last Day to Vote for America's Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs"].
Well, the votes have been counted. This year's top five winners include three companies -- denoted by the asterisk [*] -- certified as B Corporations, which "use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems," and get to proudly display the above logo on their websites and all of their other marketing media:
2. Impact Makers*
3. Stonyfield Farm
4. Academic Earth
Kudos to these inspiring innovators, as well as to BusinessWeek for showcasing enterprises that are demonstrating the far-reaching power of balancing creative commerce with social change to serve the greater good.
