Review for Hatch Innovation, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Springboard Innovation has created a completely innovative program, Local Agenda, to support everyday folks in developing a vision and then a business to promote social change. They have taken this concept to an entirely new level by developing a "social stock exchange", ChangeXchange, to obtain seed funding for these new business ideas. I took the first Local Agenda class and am now a "launcher' on ChangeXchange. Amy has inspired me to think in a completely new way and has mentored and supported me every step of the way. I cannot say enough good things about this organization and what they have done for me. Portland is very lucky to have this gift.

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

really change the whole world.

Ways to make it better...

I hadn't been scared. Amy and her staff were very good at encouraging me every step of the way.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & I took a Local Agenda class, Amy helped me work out an idea, and now I have a business idea. The organization is currently helping me obtain seed funding.
