Echoing Green

The Problem

Founded in 1987 by the leading global growth equity firm, General Atlantic, Echoing Green has provided more than 500 promising social entrepreneurs working in over forty countries with $31 million in start-up funding. Echoing Green also provides customized support services and maintains a global network of like-minded social leaders and investors*. Echoing Green needed a website that could keep up with the pace of its constituents. That meant finding a way to manage the massive volume of content, enabling multiple people to update the site, and insuring that the site remained a relevant and effective communication tool.

The Solution

LightSky worked with Echoing Green to define the infrastructure and navigation of the site. We installed a Drupal content management system with RSS features and customized modules. We integrated Salesforce, a CRM, to create the Echoing Green "Find a Fellow" feature and functionality. This eliminated the need to enter content in more than one location. LightSky heavily modified the open source Q & A platform, Shapado, to develop a site for the Work on Purpose community. LightSky worked closely with Echoing Green to insure that all users- visitors and administrators with various permissions- could easily use the site. And, LightSky optomized echoinggreen.org for SEO to support the organization's mission and reach.
