What if you had the next, world-changing, business idea? Your business could change the trajectory of someone’s life or impact the way people interact or have an impact on the environment or give people access to clean drinking water or create urban farming and give people more access to affordable, real food? But, the reality for you is, you don’t have the resources to implement the idea. Maybe it’s the money, or the support, or the technology… you know the idea is gold, and you know you can do it, but you just don’t have what you need to actually get it done. What if there was someone, or even a GROUP of people, who would come alongside you to help you change the world?
My guest this week is Kate Goodall, the co-founder and CEO of Halcyon, one of the worlds premier and honestly, most unique business incubator I’ve ever come across. What they are doing to cultivate entrepreneurs from around the world in the social good space is AMAZING. And, if you’ve ever wondered what diving in shipwrecks and running a business have in common, then you’re going to LOVE this episode.
KATE GOODALL is the Co-Founder and CEO of Halcyon House, a non-profit dedicated to solving 21st century problems by providing space and access to emerging leaders in social entrepreneurship and the arts. Goodall continues to grow Halcyon’s offerings in 2018 with By The People, an international arts and innovation festival in partnership with the Smithsonian and numerous organizations throughout DC. In 2016, Goodall helped establish WE Capital, a consortium of leading businesswomen investing in and supporting women and women-led companies. Goodall has served as juror at national and international social entrepreneurship competitions, was listed as one of the Washington Business Journal’s Power 100 and 40 Under 40, Washingtonian’s 2017 Tech Titans, and Techweek 100 DC’s Talent Cultivators.
