Startup Program Design-For Organizations

Times have changed. But entrepreneurship education and training programs, for the most part have not.  Which means todays new economy, radical entrepreneur interested in social justice, post capitalist ideas, and post growth venture building isn’t getting the support they need.  It’s time to change that.

Communal Entrepreneurship-For Founders

In the new economy, quality relationships and connectedness matters more than ever. Thus, investing in mapping out, engaging and finding ways to add value to your enterprise–or region’s innovation ecosystem–is more important than ever.  Let us help you map your existing ecosystem, identify gaps, and help you develop an intentional, sustainable and generative ecosystem strategy.  We have years of experience doing so.

Speakers-For Event Organizers

Looking for guest speakers, panelists or turn key workshops on advanced topics or emerging concepts for founders in your program?  Each of our collective members has unique expertise and lived experience wisdom that will inspire new directions, ideas and practices. Or simply sign up for the workshops and seminars we offer directly by checking our event calendar.

Research Projects-For Policy Makers

Leveraging intersectional feminist and qualitative research methodology we can help you assess, identify gaps, new opportunities and risks, inform grant proposals and show you where you might need to re-calibrate your performance metrics.

Advisory/Mentor Services-For Leaders

Choosing to challenge how enterprise work works is about taking a long journey, one meditative step at a time. At times it can feel lonely. Liminal spaces can be disorientating.  A guide, advisor or mentor who has been there, IS there, can help. If you need support for your unconventional ideas.  We are here for you.

Emerging Ideas Workshops-For Everyone

We curate consciousness-raising and empowering workshops facilitated by radical thinkers and doers from around the world that we promise will open your hearts and minds to new possibilities.
