Our monthly theme for June is Funding the Mission, an effort to provide resources, tools & knowledge to those looking to advance their mission-driven work! Check out some of the highlights from this past Gathering, and see how our attendees found pathways to fund their venture!
To start we heard from Tomy Ames, who is the Director of Research Enabled a company dedicated to teaching businesses how to expand their outreach to places they wouldn’t expect, for example, Universities. Tomy dove deep into how Universities can provide research, assist with grant funding, and what SBIR/STTR’s are & how they can help you!
Following Tomy, we hosted virtual office hours with Devon Moody-Graham about International Business Resources! Devon is the Chief Solutions Officer at CEOMom Empire, you might have seen her once or twice at prior Gathering’s. She has definitely become a hit amongst our community attendees! Alongside her we had hosted a session for Joel Smiley, who is the Founder & CEO of Attracting Resources. He provided some clarity into Tax Credits, and how each and every business can benefit from workforce credits. It’s safe to say attendees definitely walked out knowing how to save more of their hard earned money!
Finally we had Steph Hermanson, Chief Revenue Officer at Atomic Resources. She led an insightful conversation into how business owners can turn their current customers into potential lead engines. Some areas of focus that she hammered home were Retention, Expansion & Advocacy!
