More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Meeting and working with people who have a dream that without our program would be very difficult or impossible to achieve.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Excellent and most importantly the students gaining experiental learing have been terrific.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Use a portion of it ot establish a venture capital debt program to fund start-uips during these impossible times.

Ways to make it better...

We'd launched this program in better economic times.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finding people who have the dream, energy, common sense to operate a business while possesing credit sufficient to proceed.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thihs program will prove that "smaller is better" in this program is better. Our success will be measured one small business at a time.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

MY ROLE:
Board Member & We have now assisted in the launch of four businesses, with more on the horizon for 2010.
