The Social Venture Network, a nonprofit that promotes socially and environmentally responsible businesses, has named the winners of the 2008 SVN innovation awards. The idea behind the awards is to promote and support undiscovered socially responsible business and nonprofit leaders. Among the six winning organizations are a sustainable seafood production company, an ecologically responsible design firm, and a microfinance program for poor people.
