In Maine, USA, on College of the Atlantic, a new business model has been developed, based on the social innovation that brought the Samsoe project to where it is today. The model is developed by Professor Jay Freidlander from College of the Atlantic, whom in the summer of 2014 visited Samsoe with 20 students and 10 islanders. They came to Samsoe to study sustainability in small communities. Based on their research, Professor Freidlander developed a model usable for testing business ideas prior to an initiation of a project.
