Social Enterprise Funding Strategy

50


50 per session Virtual OK

Need to fund your values-driven small business, but don't know where to start? Find your business doesn't quite fit what the banks want or the VCs are looking for?

Did you know there are ways to develop your small business so you aren't betraying your mission, but you've taken the right steps to bring money into your business? There are!

Whether it's doubling down on your business model, figuring out the right business structure to appeal to investors, developing the relationships that will support your raise (or crowdfund), or even just making yourself bankable by getting your tax returns and credit score in order, there are options available for your social enterprise. The key is asking the right questions and figuring out what you want.

In this 2 hour session (*2 hours) we'll start with some basic questions and an understanding of what you've tried or think you want to try. From there we'll explore the various options and what it takes to make them successful. By the end of the session you should have a firm idea of what your funding plan might look like and how to iterate as you evolve along your path.

Training & Qualifications


In addition coaching and business modeling to midsize companies and startups, I served as a Slow Money SoCal Director, Kiva Small Business Advisor, and 1MCups member. I have coached and supported many social entrepreneurs on their funding plans over the last 8 years.

About Michelle Greenwood

I am a passionate financial innovator committed to social enterprise, impact investment, and fund development. I consult through my social enterprise, Good Capital Projects where I coach entrepreneurs..., educate values-driven investors and work with funds to develop underwriting guidelines and credit memos. I have a background in finance. I previously served as Slow Money SoCal Director of Investment Programs and Deputy Director as well as a 1-year term as a Kiva U.S. Small Business Advisor. A financial services professional for over 20 years, I have experience in Socially Responsible and impact investing. Today, I continue to find ways to develop a values-driven economy while serving the local economy movement. I am fascinated with integrated stacks of capital with each aspect of the 'stack' having different characteristics, whether gift, grant, loan, or equity investment. Love getting to know the Simbi community and this currency that compliments! show more
