Google Map of Social Enterprises

OpenAction: Group Map

iuMAP is a tool to access information about 'bottom of the pyramid' social enterprises. The tool is a Google Map showing the location of sustainable businesses.

Each of the markers on the map represents a business that alleviates poverty through job creation in poor communities and / or by delivering products or services which satisfy an unmet social need such as healthcare, education, or energy.

If you click on a marker an information window opens with the name of the business and a short explanation of the nature of the business. The window also includes a link to read more about the business on OpenAction.org.
