Expand your community of allies for powerful global networking.
I am a former Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist who now lives in Eugene, Oregon. Currently I work as an independent strategy consultant with a focus on helping young technology startups and nonprofit organizations create strong growth strategies and related fundraising plans.
I am a graduate student, studying to be a chaplain to mentally ill homeless individuals. I am also founder of a small non-profit coffeehouse called The Green Bean coffeehouse which uses its space to raise awareness for local and global non-profits and its tips to generate financial support for the non-profits that we partner with.
I am currently spending my spare time learning about other peoples cultures and countries...mostly from books, online searches and chatting online with people worldwide. The internet provides so much opportunity to learn and share life experiences. Chatting and texting online allows me to teach english with people in other countries.
I am really pleased to join the community. I founded a company www.GoPhilanthropic.com whose mission it is to connect individuals and small groups with grassroots projects around the world.
