Entrepreneur Story Time: Social Startups in the Making

Activity Description

To celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2020 and some of the good that’s been happenin’ here at home, we’ll hear short stories from a few of the fabulous fledgling founders participating in Santa Fe Innovates (SFI) very first accelerator cohort. We’ll not only learn about the next tech and solution-oriented startups with a vision for social good coming to our ‘hood, but our storytellers will also shed some light on how the program’s 6-week Ideation phase may have reshaped the solution they’re now preparing to bring through the 3-month accelerator portion of the program that they’ll be 3-weeks deep in by the time we go live on November 19th.   

So excited and I hope you’ll join us to get the scoop on Santa Fe’s social enterprise scene while showing some support to Jon Mertz and the SFI team, the investors and mentors they’ve gathered to help energize our social startups and the hardworking entrepreneurs they’re lifting up through their program, including those we’ll get to hear from:

JACOB PEDERSON, founder of Refolia, a platform for on-demand reforestation of American cities, helping climate-smart trees find the best places to grow.   

PAT WETZEL, founder of CancerRoadTrip, an online subscription film series that inspires, informs and connects people impacted by cancer.   

LADA BALLOWE, founder of Intuitives, an online platform for international intuitive teachers.  

And don’t forget to check out SFI’s Go Social Entrepreneurs, a place to learn and support one other in launching, building and sustaining a social entrepreneur venture. See you soon!
