Investing in social entrepreneurs like Josh Shuckman from Social Change Nation
It is no surprise that there is demand for our funding from social entrepreneurs. They, especially first time social entrepreneurs without huge traction (not financial traction but impact traction) are the ones who feel the most pain when it comes to funding. On a personal note they are also the folks most deserving of funding but also the most in need of "leanstartup". During my first lean for good workshop I said, "it takes more than good intentions to make an impact". I want to support these brilliant entrepreneurs - but we need a sustainable way to do so.
We challenged Josh to post the contents of 10 interviews, so we could all rally around the TRUE problem he is solving for his customers. After we publish 10, we will decide as a team how best to help more entrepreneurs like Josh.
