Impact Entrepreneurs

Impact Entrepreneurs

Brief Summary

Impact Entrepreneurs provide the knowledge, skills and expertise that serve to bridge gaps in I3* Projects, and in the building of a new world economy. They are focused on developing solutions, and outcomes greater than a single solution. They seek to contribute resources, or technical expertise, that drive results – measurable in both quantitative and qualitative terms – that  will positively affect the community within which any given projects are taking place. While these experts have the technical skills and/or knowledge in a specific field, the circumstances of the community determine how that knowledge or skill can and will be applied. Our Impact Entrepreneur collaborators know that the people of the community must drive the process of getting to the solution, in a way that best serves them. As a result, Impact Entrepreneurs work with the community, for the community, resulting in a bridge that is created by the community, for the community. This inside out approach to projects is how we achieve locally sustainable solutions.
*I3 Projects: those supported by the movements Impact (I3) Investment Cooperative.

Full Summary

Impact Entrepreneurs provide the knowledge, skills and expertise that serve I3 Investment Coop Projects, and in the building of a new world economy. Because our Collaborators operate from a mindset similar to that of an impact investors and entrepreneurs, they are focused on an outcome greater than a single solution, or their own financial benefit. They seek to contribute resources, or technical expertise, that drive results – measurable in both quantitative and qualitative terms – that  will positively affect the community within which the project is taking place. They understand that engaging at the community level is the key to a project’s success. While these experts have the technical skills and/or knowledge in a specific field, the circumstances of the community determine how that knowledge or skill can and will be applied. Our Impact Entrepreneur collaborators know that the people of the community must drive the process of getting to the solution, in a way that best serves them. As a result, Impact Entrepreneurs work with the community, for the community, resulting in a bridge that is created by the community, for the community. This inside out approach to projects is how we achieve locally sustainable solutions.

As value driven solution providers Collaborators naturally question:

How is what I am doing contributing to the whole, serving the whole community? …and how can my solution continue to make an impact outside of ‘just this project’?

As individuals, or groups, Impact Entrepreneurs collaborating within I3 seek to create an outcome, that can be utilized for a specific project, and then released into the co-op  to be leveraged, up-cycled and evolved by fellow and future collaborators on other projects; thus creating infinite possibilities for bridging future gaps on a global scale. Impact Entrepreneurs are open to sharing what they know and what they create, in order to contribute to environmental and social well being, equal opportunity and trust both on a local and global scale. The values focus of their work encompasses: equality, inclusion,
community, transparency and environmental wellbeing. They are acutely aware of the interconnected world in which we live, and that collaboration drives better, more powerful results at a faster rate than in isolation.

Collaborators who join us are driven by the opportunity to share with like-minded individuals on open-source solutions with others from around the globe. At the same time, they have a personal interest in, or compassion, for the project(s) they contribute to, resulting in a direct interest in what is happening on a project and the measurable impacts it achieves for the community within which it is located. With respect to developing a new economy, Impact Entrepreneurs are do’ers who’s desire is to make it real.  They are committed to developing the new economic model and not just talking about it on a philosophical level.
