Review for Hatch Innovation, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Springboard Innovation is an amazing new organization, offering the missing pieces needed to bring innovation to the masses - from the masses! It has a variety of components, from training "everyday people" to identify the issues that they are most passionate about, to helping them imagine, create and fund solutions to address the core problems. SI leads people from the idea of “be the change” into the reality of their own lives, for the good of their communities. The idea of taking social entrepreneurship from the exclusive few to the mainstream is exhilarating, the power will be massive!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The people around Portland who have graduated from their Local Agenda training program who are now beginning to apply their solutions to local/global issues.

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

The spirit of inclusion, believing that anyone can be an effective change-maker.

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

Positive, well educated, available and committed.

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

Replicate their organization and results around the US, creating "innovation centers" in major cities. Creating thousands of new change-makers and launching just as many innovative solutions to today's most pressing issues.

Ways to make it better...

I had had this training, network and support when I created my NGO years ago.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & Sustaining social entrepreneur.
