Hi from Bobbie Lamont in Portland Maine, Maine Angels
Barbara Lamont

Goodie Hack!
Blanca Catalina Garcia
46:04
This is real - if you could have seen where we were 1+ years ago, esp looking at where we are now. The connections that you see with our founder community were really not happening!
Blanca Catalina Garcia
55:45
This is intentional ecosystem engineering + technology + intentional impact work = stronger networks that have access points for a broader and more diverse community of founders
Blanca Catalina Garcia
58:09
The "coolness" factor of startups - but there is a much broader opportunity for our communities to build wealth
Jamelia Jones
59:29
Yes! Closing the wealth gap = Ownership
Blanca Catalina Garcia
59:33
Listen: Antoine is dope!VC doesn't always translate to wealth+ownership
Adrian Cole

Aye shout out to Rochell! Love her brand!
Barbara Lamont
01:02:14
yes Antoine. I am angel investing for the place based relations, local jobs, impact, sustainability, equity.......B Corps, even co-operatives attract the new generation of angel investors willing to look at revenue sharing structure and stop the exit obsession
Lavonya Jones
01:02:33
So awesome Barbara!

What's everyone building❓
Levoski Brown
01:08:02
I am building a professional esports team/brand for Atlanta, GA as there currently are not many offering opportunities to developing professionals

Blanca Catalina Garcia
01:10:22
It is very difficult for those starting out - a lot of what we do is helping our community of founders figure out a pathway (that works)
Lavonya Jones
01:10:25
I'm building a media company, Consciously Funded to counter the White savior narrative and amplify Black and Indigenous voices of social impact through our lifestyle brand, digital media, and capacity building resources centered in purposeful community.
Lavonya Jones
01:11:27
This is so true! Remerge ATL will be starting a nonprofit accelerator to help them start and scale in 2021
Andrea Miller
01:11:57
I am a STEM Instructional Coach at South Atlanta HS and a private consultant for organizations and businesses implementing STEM K-12 programs and initiatives

hey y’all! Greetings from Hornet Nation!
Blanca Catalina Garcia
01:15:40
Great questions, Kristina!
Jamelia Jones
01:16:31
Yes Kristina! Unrestricted funds are hard to come by for some reason. I sometimes feel its from lack of trust
Alaysia Brown
01:17:26
Kristina, here’s a really insightful article from The Center of Effective Philanthropy on shifting power through general operating support. https://cep.org/shifting-power-through-general-operating-support/ - I hope you find it helpful!
Lavonya Jones
01:18:24
Amen!
Ricquel Jackson
01:18:30
*SNAPS fingers*
Kristina Newton
01:18:38
Very true! This is what I'm saying ALL the time. To get people with the type of talent that we need, we need to be able to pay them market value. And in the tech space … that's a difficult thing to do for a nonprofit. Operating based on volunteers is simply not a sustainable model
Alaysia Brown
01:19:41
Yes Joey especially during Covid where nonprofit resources are being stretched beyond imaginiation. Our communities are leaning on nonprofits like never before and they aren’t being financially supported.
Kristina Newton
01:20:04
And it leads to founder burnout, unfortunately
Jaleesa Morman
01:20:22

Kristina Morris
01:23:55
Thanks, Alaysia - full disclosure: I used to work in philanthropy, and unrestricted funding was something that the organization leaned into while I was there. But I often still found it a slog to get the broader community to come around to this idea that nonprofit work isn't "volunteering" and a vow of poverty.
Mariam Camara
01:26:26
Collaboration over competition!
Adrian Cole
01:26:30
Open to connect with Founders >>https://twitter.com/theothercole?s=09
Jamelia Jones
01:26:37
More partnerships = more impact
Blanca Catalina Garcia
01:26:41
Yes, Kristina - I am LOL RE the vow of poverty, but this is real - we are running a legitimate business operation in our non-profit. We need to change the narrative around what is sustainability for our organizations
Jamelia Jones
01:28:24
Also - there is always a higher pressure to show impact in the nonprofit sector when trying to raise funds vs other sectors
David Castro
01:29:40
Founders Therapy is always needed
Lavonya Jones
01:30:04
Brandon! Great connector!
Blanca Catalina Garcia
01:30:22
Agree! As non-profits, you are constantly justifying your existence and to the dollar, why you deserve it - we do not treat traditional businesses the same way
Antoine Woods
01:30:34
humanizing business 🙌🏾
Blanca Catalina Garcia
01:30:36
Welcome Brandon!
Blanca Catalina Garcia

Antoine Woods

“Focus on intentional relationship building”
Blanca Catalina Garcia
01:40:50
That is smart! Learning to cultivate relationships by just checking in as a person "Hey, how are you?"
Blanca Catalina Garcia
01:41:50
Brandon: What in your mind is the biggest mistake people make around the relationships that matter for their business??
Jamelia Jones
01:42:34
Yes! Relationships have been the cornerstone of each of the transitions in my career. I have built a CRM in AirTable just to keep me on track with my connections
Antoine Woods
01:42:42
Great advice @AdrianCole
David Castro
01:47:46
Follow up is a major issue for me. How do you all manage that. I make initial connections easily but more often than not there isn't a specific ask at the moment.
Libert White
01:50:32
Good point David. Sometimes I think about the conversation that we had and share an article or something helpful in the follow-up. It’s about watering the relationship until the moment of the ask.
Adrian Cole
01:51:26
would be
Adrian Cole
01:51:33
@David on the first connection. set the schedule for the next
Adrian Cole
01:51:39
so like on the first conversation, I end with let's follow up in a few months. most calendars are clear months ahead so you can set a date and time already.
Adrian Cole
01:51:48

Hey Charlton!
@EdmundAmoye
02:11:38
Hey Mark Taylor - It’s simply an abstraction - a simplification of a complex thing that gives access to more people. So Dreamweaver is a perfect example. We have now moved on to tools like Webflow, Bubble, Carrd, etc.
Blanca Catalina Garcia
02:12:52
Love that! the relationships you build when you jump into tech, even if you are not a developer, and then all you learn from being in those relationships
Maleeka Holloway
02:13:12

Hey, I got bumped earlier. Reach out with questions @brandontalk on Twitter
Adrienne White
02:17:16

Volunteering is my strategic method of networking. When I started board service, I was less picky about where to serve to build credibility. Now, before I join I check to ensure I believe in the mission AND I check out the other board members.
Kacey Venning
03:52:03
Great point Adrienne!
