IW STAGES OF SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR DEVELOPMENT
IGNITE BY IW
IGNITE by IW partners with trusted community anchors (Ignite Hubs) to build a network of long-term entrepreneur development hubs at a neighborhood level. Through Ignite Hubs, IW delivers social enterprise programming that ignites and develops local interest and capacity to transform neighborhood economies.
IW’s Ideate stage employs design thinking methodology to support emerging social entrepreneurs in imagining solutions to critical quality of life and economic prosperity challenges. Ultimately, emerging entrepreneurs will be able to hone in on the unique needs of the community and discover viable business opportunities.
IW’s Create stage supports the launch of new and already established nonprofits, businesses, and hybrid entities by equipping them with the resources necessary to build measurable and sustainable social impact business models. This includes the support and guidance from matched long-term mentors, Innovation Works team, and the⠀Miller Center’s⠀robust set of resources. The IW Boost Program is one key element of the Create stage.
IW’s Grow stage supports emerging or established social enterprises seeking to become sustainable place-based or scalable social enterprises. Enterprises go through a disciplined process to implement the social impact business model, market validation, adapt, and prepare for long-term financing to grow the enterprise and create jobs.
IW’s Scale stage identifies and supports social enterprise models seeking to scale beyond the local market, while maintaining operations in Baltimore to continue supporting local neighborhood economies and creating jobs.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
EcoMap Baltimore is here to help entrepreneurs find the resources they need to build startups, small businesses, and nonprofits in their communities.
