Seed20 OnStage!

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” Today, we focus on an upcoming event dedicated to those in the Charlotte community that are “doing for others” each and every day…SEED20 OnStage!

SEED20 is the annual program of Social Venture Partners Charlotte (a nonprofit organization) to identify, highlight and connect the community to the region’s most promising social entrepreneurs tackling pressing challenges.

Croixstone’s Mark Weber is serving as the Lead Partner for this year’s powerful program, best known for its high-energy SEED20 OnStage event where ten members of the SEED20 class compete to win cash awards by making three-minute “pitches” to a panel of judges and a community audience.

This year’s event takes place at the Bechtler Museum and Knight Theater in front of an audience of 1,000 guests on April 16, 2018.  We invite you to view the SEED20 video and website to learn more.

Fueling Opportunity in the Queen City through Innovation

Goodwill = Innovation? 

Yep, you better believe it.  Today we joined a team of folks from Social Venture Partners Charlotte and toured Goodwill’s brand spanking new, $22 million Leon Levine Opportunity Center in west Charlotte.  And we we blown away.

Forget what you think you might know about the Goodwill experience.  When we entered the building located at 5301 Wilkinson Boulevard, we were transformed into a high-energy universe filled with natural light, soaring ceilings, original art, a very tasty restaurant featuring locally-sourced food, and more.

Goodwill’s new 160,000 square foot facility is vitally important to Charlotte.  With a 2014 Harvard study having ranked Charlotte as 50th out of 50 large cities in the country for economic mobility, the Croixstone team applauds Goodwill for its innovative approach in bundling a comprehensive collection of resources and opportunities for job training, job placement and job creation in the Charlotte metro region for individuals with barriers to employment.
