Sunday March 13th I had the pleasure of co-hosting the first Discover Local Impact event, with 121Giving, Plus Social Good, YOUvolution and Urban Co-Lab. The event was full of memorable moments, especially conversations between social entrepreneurs working to break down barriers and close gaps in diverse categories from healthcare to technology to food access and affordable housing.
A huge thanks to our 4 panelists:
- Chelsea Elliott, Founder, Half-Helen Foundation
- Michael Henderson, Founder, Doing Development
- Damon Polk, COO, Builders Of Hope CDC
- Paige Hill Oliverio, Founder, Urban Patchwork
Here are some of the highlights:
Paige Oliverio, Founder of Urban Patchwork, talked about how hard it was to start her business, and then recover when she lost it all and had to develop a new approach. How do you start your own social good project?
