Entrepreneurism: A Pathway to Financial Freedom!
We are thankful for the Fools who have provided a hand up to support our Financial Freedom Rule Breakers!
We know that it takes a special kind of person to create breakthroughs. Our Financial Freedom Rule Breakers Program is finding these social entrepreneurs, investing in them, learning from them, and helping them go further – faster. The Motley Fool Foundation connects Rule Breakers with our Foolish members to help amplify their work.
As a part of the Financial Freedom Rule Breakers Program, we recently launched Minutes with the Mindtrust – real-time consulting sessions designed to help our Rule Breakers address the business challenges that slow their progress. In a recent session, Rule Breaker Tim Lampkin, CEO of Higher Purpose Co., a social impact organization focused on Black entrepreneurialism in the Mississippi Delta region, connected with Ollen Douglass, Managing Partner of The Motley Fool Venture Fund. Tim was able to get some key insights from Ollen’s many years of experience, and the two discussed their shared goal of helping communities of color launch successful businesses.
Here’s what Tim had to say:
“Ollen Douglass has helped me think about Higher Purpose funding streams in a more creative way. Higher Purpose Co. is currently supported mostly by grants and major donations. Ollen has encouraged me to explore revenue-generating initiatives to help sustain Higher Purpose, and we’re looking into those options now.”
