Southern New Hampshire University's "Be a Social Entrepreneur" Blog has been named one of the best entrepreneurial blogs of 2012 in the The Best of BuyerZone series, which highlights great business blogs and sites on the web. BuyerZone, an online small business resource center, recognized the blog for encouraging inspiration amongst aspiring entrepreneurs. Each blog was ranked by freshness of content, age of blog, social media presence, and engagement with readers.
Southern New Hampshire University reaffirmed its commitment to its online Bachelor of Science in Social Entrepreneurship program with the development and launch earlier this year of Be a Social Entrepreneur. The website offers a platform to raise awareness of social entrepreneurs worldwide and foster learning and inspiration.
The blog features a proprietary Q & A series, "The Social-E Six," offering profiles of social entrepreneurs worldwide; links to topical social entrepreneurship articles, and periodic updates on Goyoung, a global project created by three young women from Belgium who embarked on a 9-month journey in October 2011 to film social entrepreneurs under the age of 30 for a documentary. Southern New Hampshire University is a media sponsor of the Goyoung project.
