What is NetImpact? Their website does a good job explaining:
Net Impact is a network of more than 13,000 new-generation leaders committed to using the power of business to improve the world. It is also one of the most innovative and influential networks of MBAs, graduate students and young professionals in existence today.
Our members believe that business can both earn a profit and create positive social change. Through a central office in San Francisco and more than 100 chapters in cities and graduate schools around the globe, Net Impact offers a portfolio of programs that enable members to transform this ideal into measurable results.
Basically this is a network of:
* Thought-Leaders for the future of business
* CSR Leaders
* Social Entrepreneurs
* Environmental & Renewable Energy Experts
* Nonprofit Directors
* International Development Specialists
* Socially-Responsible Investors
It seems like a good place to network and has a slick business-network feel to it, probably because its core constituency is the business school population. I don’t offer that much in this post besides a summary so I’ll try to get a better scoop on this organization, and how it could help.
