What/where are available resources for Social Ventures?

I am starting a strategy consulting platform for organizations focused on driving social change (for profit or nonprofit) - I am starting a crowd funding campaign to raise funds for early stage planning, including research, website development and branding. Is anyone aware of resources that are available for social ventures that might offer some of these services at more reasonable pricing?

Are you looking for resources for your venture (consulting platform) or for your potential clients (social ventures)? How is your platform structured (for profit or non-profit)?

I've just launched http://wearethesolution.io/ and am beginning to once again host BrainJams to bring together people around the world who are working to create change in the world. Hosting an event in London on Friday, in Dublin next Tuesday and in Bilbao on 18-NOV. Would love to see you there if you are in any of those cities. Will be seeking some grants to support expanding it to more cities over the year head. Anyone interested in helping to build this new global community, please contact me. I think its wonderful to see so many people jumping into social good. While I am working on a software company as my primary focus, it's too important to not invest some time in this work. And it didn't take me any money or other resources to get the web site up, to write about our vision for a better world or to convene people to discuss it in physical space. (though I did spend some money on food and what have you and I am now spending money on Facebook Ads to reach people outside of my network - but I don't have to do that).

Thank you all so much for your insight and recommendations. Have quickly looked at some of the sites mentioned and it looks like I am being steered in the right direction.

Manjula, the resources I spoke of here are for my consulting platform, which I am looking to structure as long term partnerships with social change organizations while creating a network of supportive shared services. So I'm hoping the relationships I build to help in the formation of my own business will extend to serve future clients as well.

Alejandro, I will reach out to you separately to discuss further, thank you so much! Chris, I love your platform! Will you be hosting BrainJams in NYC at all? If you need any kind of support or alliance in this area, I would be happy to help! Will reach out to you separately as well.

Thank you all so much again, what a great supportive community!
