Frequently asked questions

Account Information

Why should I create an account?


Creating an account on our site allows you access to the Ecosystem Directory and the Community Groups. The ecosystem directory is a directory of everyone who has signed up on our site. This is an awesome opportunity to get to know others doing similar work to you, way to collaborate together, and ask for help. The community groups are structured groups around certain topics for a more streamlined experience of connecting with others like you.To add a new question go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.




What do I have access to as a member and what do I have access to if I’m not a member?

Is there a fee to become a member?


There is no fee to become a member! It is free and open to everyone.





Definitions

I don't understand the terms used on the site. What do they mean?


Honestly, us neither sometimes! There is so much jargon used in the social economy space (see, jargon right there!) which is why we made a list of the terms we use the most and their definitions. The list can be found here.





Sharing Information

Can I share a blog post I wrote?


You can certainly share a blog post you wrote. You can share it in a community group and/or on the blog page. If you’re sharing it on the blog page you’ll have to send it to us first for approval and then we will post and credit you.




What’s allowed to be shared in the groups?


You can share resources, case studies, personal success/failure stories, photos, and/or videos so long as they are applicable to the group context to which you’re posting it in.
