Why SEED SPOT
We are on a mission to support traditionally underrepresented entrepreneurs creating solutions that improve lives or make the world a better place.
SEED SPOT believes in uplifting entrepreneurs from all backgrounds who want to enact positive change through their business ventures. We provide access to rich networks of resources, mentors, business fundamentals, community partners, and capital sources, to help entrepreneurs find success and ensure everyone has a chance to share their ideas with the world.
SEED SPOT helped us pivot our business and carve out a niche in the agency space by focusing on nonprofits tackling emerging media. Today, we've helped a range of clients from smaller nonprofits to larger startups, have solidified advisors, and still leverage SEED SPOT's network on a regular basis.

Our Focus Areas
Making sustainable development goals actionable through business

Meet the Team
Everyday we each ask ourselves, "How did I help entrepreneurs today?" We are a team of problem solvers, brainstormers, dreamers, and get-sh*t-doners. We are fueled by coffee and passion to work with entrepreneurs from all backgrounds and beliefs. We unequivocally believe that entrepreneurs will lead the charge of innovating and solving the toughest problems facing our cities, our states, and our world.
