Please help us raise money to attend StartingBloc (we only need to raise $1,000). I am launching the Legacy Movement (legacymovement.net) in Sept. 2012. Please like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TheLegacyMovement
Our vision is to develop a transformational organization that promotes and executes on creating generational wealth through entrepreneurship and business ownership in under-served communities. In the 1st phase, we will launch a technology platform that will bring together four key stakeholder groups to create entrepreneurship and generational wealth transfer activities:
· Entrepreneurs who wish to start and / or accelerate the growth of their business
· Experienced operators who want to acquire / invest in SMBs
· SMB owners who desire to sell their businesses
· Financial capital providers
In the 2nd phase, we will launch a non-profit that will teach wealth-building principles in under-served communities. If we execute successfully, we will be in a position to launch a venture capital fund dedicated to investing in minority and women-owned business over the long-term.
"The Legacy Movement" - Changing the conversation about success and entrepreneurship in underserved communities.
The StartingBloc Fellowship begins with the Institute for Social Innovation.
The Institute is a five-day transformative experience during which young leaders learn to increase their impact, exponentially. The Institute curriculum includes a survey of social innovation, an innovative case-study competition and sessions with industry leaders.
The 2012 New York Institute will take place over August 2 - 6 at the Design for Social Innovation Space at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
