The Alt-Economy: A Birds Eye View


15 per hour Virtual OK

Feel like there must be alternatives to moving your financial capital through an investment landscape? Looking for ways to increase your resources along the edge between the formal and informal economies? Are you an entrepreneur interested in funding your social enterprise while maintaining the authenticity of your ideas and perhaps even build community while you're doing it? Are you an investor concerned about the Business As Usual (BAU) investment opportunities that aren't aligned with your values?

This overview is for you!

* During a one hour session I will point out the components and elements of the alternative economy I recognize regularly in my work.
* I will also suggest how these components and elements might work with your needs and intention.

During this brief session, we won't be developing strategy or plans, but I hope, as we journey together you'll come away with a better understanding of the landscape. I look forward to being your guide!

Training & Qualifications

I worked in financial services for over two decades. I left my licenses behind to serve as a Slow Money SoCal director in 2014. In the ensuing years, I have continue to grow my practice and experience serving as a Kiva Small Business Advisor and participating in many communities, and circles with an interest in this new economy vision. I help build a nested eco-system of investors and entrepreneurs interested in a new economy that is inclusive, justice and honors the limits of the planet.

Michelle brings immense value through her life skill and experience that is hard to estimate in Simbi. She has a quality of professionalism balanced... well with empathy. She can both directs and flows with the conversation. Michelle is an asset to Simbi and the creative and philosophical business owners that populate it. I will be returning frequently to learn from her. show more

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
