Why Work Matters

A note from Brian Mohr, YScouts

The concept of work used to be viewed as a simple marketplace where expertise delivered by employees was remunerated by hourly wages and salaries - nothing more, nothing less. That model has outlived its usefulness. People demand more from their work experience. And, it couldn't have come at a better time. The massive amount of damage our world has endured as a result of a narrow focus on short-term, profit maximization has reached dangerous limits. Corruption, environmental degradation, social breakdown, stress, and a host of other effects are impacting people across the globe. Resulting from the explosion in technology and social media that shows us how small the world really is, people are now seeing the problems that exist and the opportunities to address them.

But how does one truly think globally and act locally? The answer: SEED SPOT. Every once in a great while an organization comes along and invents a new way to solve problems. SEED SPOT is a social impact incubator with a singular focus to educate, accelerate and invest in entrepreneurs who are solving our world's most important problems. For the past 4 years, SEED SPOT has accepted hundreds of social entrepreneurs and their teams into a series of part-time and full-time programs focused on teaching them how to create businesses to solve social problems. From micro-farming to proctored online test-taking, SEED SPOT ventures learn how to successfully start a for-profit or non-for-profit business intended to scale. How does SEED SPOT structure their incubator model? It's simple. They operate with both earned program revenue and contributed revenue. They do not take equity in their ventures, which provides peace of mind to the entrepreneurs who want to protect and grow their ideas. What originally started as a one city operation in Phoenix is about to explode to multiple cities across the US.

Entrepreneurs who want to solve the world's most important problems will soon have an ally in their pursuit of a life dedicated to work that matters. Long gone are the days where the workplace is defined as an exchange of expertise for pay. People want their work to mean something, to make a difference, to solve important problems. It's a great time for SEED SPOT.
