Attentive.ly shows you what your customers and leads — or donors and action-takers — are saying on social media.
Having worked in non-profit fundraising for years, I know first-hand that we need more effective ways to communicate and be engaged with donors and constituents. The women led team at Attentive.ly is contributing to the solution by harnessing social media to provide more data to fundraisers. Equity. [Progressive Media]
Change.org is the world's largest petition platform, empowering people everywhere to create the change they want to see.
I met Ben years ago and have been following his progress as well as participating on the site. I wanted to help support the notion of non-profits becoming sustainable businesses that no longer rely solely on donations and grants. I also am fully on board with platforms that empower every day citizens to take action in the areas they care about. Private Equity. [Progressive Media]
Conscious Company is the first print and digital, nationally distributed publication in the US to focus solely on sustainable business and business as a force for good. By leveraging the power of storytelling and great design, Conscious Company aims to broaden the conversation about using business as a force for good. They believe that a new definition of success in business is emerging, one that is ultimately centered on a company’s ability to have a positive effect on society and the environment — taking all stakeholders into account — in addition to turning a profit. They want to celebrate these businesses by featuring the stories of companies that operate consciously, by providing their leaders with a megaphone to inspire other businesses to do the same, and by showing the world just how powerful business can be when used in a positive way.

CrowdTangle is an innovative new social application that helps organizations connect their members to each other and offers the ability to track social media outreach efforts. CrowdTangle is proving to be a powerful tool to help progressive organizations and other groups maximize their social media content and better reach their audiences.

Located in Berkeley, the Daily Kos team provides cutting edge content as well as a curated online space for folks to learn about politics, local and national news, and progressive events.
I like the dedication of the local team, their vast experience in the online media space, and see that they fill a real educational need for activists and everyday individuals interested in the progressive movement. Equity. [Progressive Media]

I am impressed by Colin's sincere dedication to this valiant mission. The ability to empower individuals to engage with advertising, I find to be both needed and admirable. Equity. [Progressive Media]
Upworthy is a social media outlet with a mission to make meaningful stories go viral.
I like the social media do-good concept. The Upworthy team is curating the best social justice content and circulating it via social circles. I love that activist moms in West Oakland, media savvy city entrepreneurs, all the way to progressive lesbians in Seattle, are all engaged in and circulating Upworthy content. Equity.
