Trustee: SEED SPOT

Phoenix, AZ


Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
We have been a KIVA trustee for nearly a year. We have found our partnership with KIVA to be invaluable for the entrepreneurs we work with to access micro-loans. These loans have given our entrepreneurs the financial resources to create immediate impact in the communities they serve and get them to a point where they can validate and commercialize their products.
What is the mission of your organization?
DREAMS DRIVE CHANGE Everyone has a dream inside of them, an idea that is yet to be born. When a dream comes to life, the world is changed. We believe in supporting people with dreams. PEOPLE BUILD COMMUNITY Change happens when groups of people come together, without ego, to support one another. We believe in creating spaces for community to grow. TRUST MATTERS Creating an environment that embodies trust, excludes threat, and mitigates competition ensures that all ideas can survive. We believe in creating a safe space for people to grow their ideas. PASSION ABOVE PROFIT A good idea is worth nothing without the right person behind it. We believe in people with passion. IT’S ABOUT THE JOURNEY The course for any entrepreneur is unknown. We believe in the journey more than the destination.
