Dennis Whittle, CEO and Founder, Global Giving Enable everyone in the world with an idea
enclosure-voice 937_ 12/6/10- The mission for GlobalGiving.org is 'Unleash the potential of people around the world to make positive change happen.' Larry had a discussion with Dennis Whittle, CEO & Co-Founder, Global Giving and asked Dennis if he could expand on the mission statement. "We believe that anyone in the world with a good idea for making their community a better place should be able to have that idea heard and possibly supported. It doesn't mean it will be supported but they should have that idea heard. On the other side we believe that anyone in the world with talent or resources should be able to reach out and directly connect with the people with ideas and help make those ideas a reality." Dennis is a keynote speaker at some 'Social Entrepreneurship' events in Colorado. Larry asked for an example of why people work through and give through Global Giving. "I think more and more, people are looking for a direct connection, transparency and efficiency, speed. It used to be if you wanted to contribute to big causes in the world, you sent money through the mail. Then maybe, you'd get a brochure at the end of the year, telling you in general terms, what an organization had done. Global Giving allows you to go online, choose an organization with a cause that you're interested in, in a country or community you're interested in, see exactly what your $10, $100 or $1000 can do. And then get directly connected with them, get feedback and updates quarterly, you can email them if you want, you can visit them if you want. You can tell your friends about the organization you think is doing good work. So it's really a platform that enables direct connection in real time where you can see a real impact." We're looking forward to your keynote addresses for ACG Denver, University of Denver, University of Colorado at Boulder and a number of other universities around the state. There's much more, listen now...

MacKenzie Roebuck-Walsh, CoChairwoman, Daniels Consulting Firm Cutting edge of business and technology
enclosure-voice 909_ 10/11/10- Can low-income businesses have a high-impact on the triple bottom-line? To answer this question, the Daniel’s Consulting Firm (DCF) has partnered with the Greater Good Academy to begin measuring the impact of a sustainable business plan on fledgling businesses. As co-chairperson of DCF, MacKenzie Roebuck-Walsh is leading the effort to develop metrics that track the success of students at the Greater Good Academy, both during and after instruction. The Greater Good Academy strives to incorporate environment awareness, community engagement, financial impacts and over-all company culture into day-to-day business for the students. We're talking with MacKenzie Roebuck-Walsh, she is co-chairwoman of the Daniels Consulting Firm which is a spin off of a student organization that allows students to get real world practice doing consulting jobs over an eight week period. MacKenzie says her main goal as chairwoman of the organization is to bring in partners and then staff those partnerships with students from the school and make sure their projects are really complete from day to day and at the end of the eight weeks have a very professional deliverable. Larry asked, "Are there specific types of organizations that you look for?" She said, "Yes, we reach out looking for organizations that are usually in the mid-size range, sometimes startups that need a marketing plan or financial plan. Daniels also has a core focus on sustainability and ethical business practices. So anytime we can bring on a project that focuses on one of those two areas, either a sustainable green business or a business that's really looking to add some ethical components to a business plan, that's where we go to work. MacKenzie went on to define 'Triple Bottom Line'. "The triple bottom line refers to people, planet and profit. So it is taking the typical business function and looking at their output, not only from a profit standpoint, but also how is it affecting the people (in the organization, customers, people in the neighborhood where you do business) and also, how is it affecting the planet? What are your business practices doing to conserve energy, give back?" There's much more...

845_ 5/24/10 - Their students learn more about the world
Greg Bowlin, CTIR Board Member Jim Kidder, Exec. Dir, CTIR enclosure-voice The International Studies Schools Association (ISSA) is a national network of K-12 schools dedicated to improving students' understanding of the world. Larry interviewed Jim Kidder, Executive Director for the University of Denver Graduate School of International Studies, Center for Teaching International Relations (CTIR) and Greg Bowlin a CTIR board member and past chair of the World Trade Center board of directors. Greg is a Sr. VP and Chief Strategy Officer with Jeppesen, a company with worldwide exposure. The interview was conducted at the Governor's Residence at the Boettcher Mansion. They were celebrating the winners of the World Affairs Challenge which is an innovative student program that helps middle school and high school students expand their global vision with real-world international issues. The 2010 theme encompasses 'the Millennium Development Goals.' The World Affairs Challenge is an international, academic tournament for middle and high school students. Jim pointed out, "CTIR has been in existence for about 40 years to really focus on K-12 global education. So even though we are affiliated with the University of Denver, we really try to reach out to teachers all across Colorado and even across the United States to help them have their students learn more about the world." Greg said, "What they found is people that come into the business in the U.S. know very little about international business and how to deal internationally. In fact they find with kids and people in general, that they're just not exposed globally, to what's going on in the world. I feel it's just very important that they know this because business has become global." There's much more here so listen now... subscribe to our RSS feed

798_ The project began as a Community Capital Project 3/1/10 -
Blair Taylor, Denver Karma, CoFounder Adam Post, Denver Karma, CoFounder enclosure-voice Colorado nonprofits employ 123,000 full-time employees and utilize 83,000 full-time volunteers. The nonprofit sector is the 3rd largest industry in Colorado. Colorado generated $13.1 billion in revenue and spent $11.9 billion. As well as metro Denver ranking 10th of the largest 50 cities in the number of nonprofits per capital. Blair Taylor and Adam Post joined Larry Nelson to talk about an organization they cofounded along with Kristin Reid, called Denver Karma. They were attending the University of Denver. The project began as a Community Capital Project, part of the Daniels School of Business curriculum, which aims to engage students in a dialogue about the ethical and social relationships of business and organizations in the community. Denver Karma evolved as a way for young professionals to invest a reasonable, small amount of time based on their available time to begin to fill the gaps that exist. Currently Denver Karma has about a dozen nonprofit partners with several more in consideration and about 50 young professionals involved. Denver Karma's mission touches everyone. "We would like to provide a mutually beneficial system to create community relationships. It provides young professionals with the opportunity to get involved strategically within the community and utilize their skills, providing nonprofits with a relief or substitution while they are struggling to manage internal staff and the financial support to employ them."

570_ What is Social Entrepreneurship?”
Dr. Paul Bauer and Chris Pelley on Social Entrepreneurshipenclosure-voice Dr. Paul Bauer, Clinical Professor, Daniels College of Business, DU and Chris Pelley, Managing Director, Capital Investment Management Group discuss this social entrepreneurship with Larry. Paul explained, "For me, it goes back to the Entrepreneur part of the equation. Like Einstein said, “We can’t solve the problems with the same thinking that we created them with.” Entrepreneurship is a mechanism that will allow us to address and make some real progress with the challenges we face today. The ‘social’ part for me says what we’re trying to do is create value wealth for the community, not just for the individual. I think business does that and I think business has a definite role to play in that. That’s why I think this is a topic that is very relevant to business today." Chris went on from there, "I come from the business entrepreneurship side of the equation, and yet we see a common path, a parallel direction, in terms of solving many of the world’s problems, whether it’s through business enterprise or social enterprise. My interpretation of their definition of social entrepreneurs is, 1.) It’s people who are going to use creative thinking in solving any problem. 2.) The notion of using real business principals and business drivers for the best results is also an important issue. 3.) Sustainability." There's much more...listen now...

Peter Kellner, Endeavor_12-14-09 758_ Change Your City: Social Entrepreneurship
enclosure-voice Meet this 39 year old dynamo; Peter Kellner, CEO, JD who has turned around 320 companies primarily in South America, and created in excess of 80,000 jobs at $2.5 billion. Peter Kellner was featured in Barron’s, “New Faces of Philanthropy,’ December 2008. Larry interviewed Peter during his world-wind tour in Colorado talking about social entrepreneurism and Ashoka. Peter is the managing partner and founder of Richmond Management, primarily a venture capital firm that invests in technology & related services in the US. They also invest overseas and have been investing in media principally in China since late 1990s and is still very active there. Peter has a great team in place and that allows him time for his passion - Endeavor. Endeavor was started 11 years ago with Peter and his co-founder Linda Rottenberg, modeled on Ashoka an organization that vets and selects social entrepreneurs and started by his dear friend, Bill Drayton. Peter went to Bill and said, "Bill can I stand on your shoulders"; and I read this Thoreau quote, "and I want to call this thing Endeavor. I want to build an organization just like Ashoka, but I want to fund business entrepreneurs in the emerging world. Not micro credit entrepreneurs, I'm looking for Steve Jobs in Istanbul, people who can create massive wealth for their societies, inspiring stories, jobs and really lead cultural change around environmental development within their countries", which is, I think, the key to progress. So here we are eleven years later and Endeavor is in eleven countries. As a social entrepreneur, Peter co-founded Endeavor, a pioneering organization promoting entrepreneurship in emerging markets. Peter is on the board of Obopay, Inc., Voxiva, Inc. and AdChina, Inc. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of The Allen-Stevenson School, a boy’s school in New York City, as well as the Board of Ashoka Youth Venture.

Hunt Lambert, CEO, CSU Global Campus 712_ Servicing your constituents by going global with rapidly changing markets
enclosure-voice Larry sat down with Hunt Lambert, Associate Provost, Colorado State University Continuing, Education, CEO, CSU Global Campus to talk about CSU's new project. Hunt explained, "The global campus idea started about 3 or 4 years ago when a bunch of us said, 'Is CSU, as the states land grant, still serving all of the students we were designed to serve?' Well we did some research and discovered about 500,000 people in the state who aspired to complete their undergraduate degree or earn a Master's degree, and the reason they aren't is not about tuition - it's about location, their geography and their schedule keeps them from going back to school. So we took a hard look at what the privates have done on online education; We took a hard look at our mission; and we said, We ought to find a way to serve this market in Colorado. And that was the genesis of the CSU Global Campus. It's amazing how the students have responded. We now exist as a third campus within the Colorado State System. In the first 11 months from funding, we went from nothing at all - no employees, no students, no courses, to having a fully functional online public university. Nine months after we taught the first course, we had a thousand students! Hunt has been part of 40 startups in 12 countries - he has a very broad entrepreneurial experience. Envirofit.org is one of many he is very proud of. Hunt is also on a panel at a RVC program on 9/8/09, Social Entrepreneurship: A Giant Step for Mankind and Profits.

Steve Werner, David Kuria and Larry Nelson Sustainable Water and Sanitation Project in Kenyaenclosure-voice Larry sat down with David Kuria from Nairobi, Kenya and Steve Werner, an independent consultant and active member of the Rotary Club of Denver Southeast who has worked in international development for 25 years. David is the Chief Executive officer of Ecotact Limited, an environmental development company incorporated in Kenya. He is the Ashoka Fellow of the Year for his project. David Kuria from Nairobi, Kenya, is an expert on water issues in Kenya but he is also in demand around the world because he is taking a new approach to addressing water problems by addressing the sustainability issue. Sustainability usually comes down to whether there is ongoing funding in order to keep your enterprise going, whether it’s water and sanitation or some other problem. Steve said, "The issues that David and I have been concerned about are the issues around a growing population in urban areas and all the sanitation and water problems that come with that." David pointed out, "Ikotoilet looks at transformation, restoration and sustainability of social dignity in our ever growing urban population. Our value proposition rests on providing public conveniences that ensure consistency, cleanliness and conservation." Listen fo the specifics...

enclosure-voice Justin Rockefeller is the chairman and cofounder of Generation Engage. His father is the Democratic Senator from West Virginia and his mother's father was the Republican Senator from Illinois - Justin grew up with politics around the dinner table "...and they didn't always see eye to eye". Recently Justin was in Colorado to help launch the 'Change Your City' Campaign in Denver. Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper is also supportive of the campaign. Larry interviewed Justin at the Phipps Mansion (Hosted by the University of Denver). Justin's passion? "Most young Americans don't have access to the types of things my classmates had access to in college. Things like earmarked funding, student groups, visiting campaigns on campus - as in politicians, professors, you name it. They care about issues and people. They don't necessarily see politics as a means to an end relating to those issues. So our group of young people founded Generation Engage - came together and decided there needed to be more focus on the non-college view, bringing political access to them... But also thinking of politicians themselves and what drives them to interact with young people. We stumbled upon a Google grant which gives us free advertising on the Google homepage, and that provides a carrot for politicians to participate, because they get the message out for free, and our young members in community colleges across the country get to interact with mostly local politicians. It's always a democrat and a republican." Guests include big names like Colin Powell, Newt Gingrich and many others...listen for more...

627_ PROJECT C.U.R.E. has over 12,000 volunteers all making a difference
Dr. Douglas Jackson, President, Project CUREenclosure-voice PROJECT C.U.R.E. (Commission on Urgent Relief & Equipment) was founded in 1987 to help meet the need for medical supplies, equipment and services around the world. Since its inception, PROJECT C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief to needy people in over 120 countries. Larry and Pat interviewed Douglas Jackson, President and CEO of Project C.U.R.E. about their progress and how they are impacting so many lives. Addressing the history Doug said, "We got started 22-23 years ago, quite unintentionally. Doug’s father Dr. James Jackson was doing economic consulting in the 3rd world – Zimbabwe, Peru, Ecuador and finally Brazil where he saw a clinic, a beat-up, ramshackle cabin thing, in the middle of a town of 300,000 people – and there weren’t any medical supplies and Larry Nelson with Doug Jackson at Project C.U.R.E. headquarters in Denver, Coloradono real equipment. So, my pop decided that day that he would do something to change that situation." Doug went on, "There are a number of ways to be involved with Project CURE. You can donate medical equipment if you have some, crutches, and walkers that you needed temporarily. We figure it costs us about $25 to deliver a box of medical supplies or equipment anywhere in the world. The value of what’s in that big old box is about $500. So for every $25 in, we can put $500 overseas." Listen to this...we can all make difference...

Chris Lowney, Author, Heroic Leadership 595_ Heroic Leadership: Self-Awareness; Ingenuity; Love; Heroism
enclosure-voice "The way I define self-awarenes as it relates to leadership is... ‘to lead well, people have to know themselves well. What are their strengths and weaknesses, their values, their outlook on the world," said Chris Lowney, author of the best seller, Heroic Leadership. Chris was with JP Morgan for just about 17 years, in New York, Tokyo, Singapore and London. Before that for almost seven years he was a Jesuit Seminarian after finishing high school. He was also the keynote speaker at a number of functions the day Mayor Hickenlooper and Governor Ritter proclaimed Tuesday November 18, 2008 “Social Enterprise Day” in Colorado. Larry interviewed Chris after his keynote address at the ACG Denver sell-out. Chris went onto say, "It seems to me that self-awareness usually involves two kinds of things, one is that we all have to make some foundational investment in knowing ourselves. You know, what am I here on earth for? What do I care about? What am I trying to accomplish?, these sorts of things. These ideas seem abstract and irrelevant but when we don’t come to grips with them, then sometimes we go a little bit adrift. One of the Roman philosophers, Seneca said, “To one who doesn’t know his destination, no wind is favorable”. (Lucius Annaeus Seneca (Roman philosopher and statesman [4 BC-AD 65 ...) "So the idea of self-awareness includes these two dimensions; 1.) that we make some foundational investment in knowing ourselves and 2.) we have some mechanism for keeping ourselves updated every day on how it is going." Chris talked about the 'Four Principles That Made All the Difference'. In addition to self-awareness; ingenuity; love; and heroism were discussed. Listen now...

Steve Bigari, America's Family401_ Social Entrepreneurship: A Giant Step for Mankind and Profits
Social Entrepreneurship is the 'final frontier' of philanthropy. Steve Bigari and America’s Family work with employers like McDonalds to help their low income employees break the cycle of poverty. This will benefit us all. Steve's journey really began at McDonalds, watching people struggle. He employed 600 people at any given time, and the rule, not the exception, the rule – these folks struggled on a day to day basis to make ends meet. "What I found, by getting involved and connecting with them, so basically creating relationships for them, if I could add education and relationships to their hard work, that’s central to everything we learned. If somebody doesn’t want in the worst way to break the binds of poverty, they’re not going to be able to." The most important ingredient is they must be willing and able to work hard. Steve is a keynote panelist at an ACG Denver Luncheon - Social Entrepreneurship - When Greed Is Good: Creating Value and Making a Difference Through Common Good Capitalism. His motto: Inspiration, Instigation and Innovation.
