Where we work

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our goal is to help organizations and programs that provide services to entrepreneurs with the focus of helping the entrepreneur start, grow, and maintain their businesses.

Working as a fiduciary agent and primary fundraiser for these organizations and programs that need our help.

We have an extensive network of community volunteers that are highly engaged with the startup community in and around Ohio.

Our main metrics are funds raised, funds distributed to organizations and programs, and outcomes reported by the entrepreneurs that have participated in programs and with organizations.

We become the fiduciary agent for the Lumos Accelerator and have been raising funds for other partner programs. We have yet to gain significant traction for some of our small program fundraising efforts.
