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.

Will the day come when we all work as our own boss?
The World Economic Forum held its annual meeting earlier this month and the future of work was a key topic of discussion. The organization’s Global Future Council on Education, Gender and Work is presently crafting a document that addresses the question of how we facilitate the transition from the traditional form of work to the future state where work is more flexible.
- Entrepreneurs and freelancers represent the future of the workplace as traditional office jobs become less and less relevant
- Lifelong learning is more important than ever before as skill requirements are constantly changing
- There is a constant need to be reskilled and you need some kind of job renewal every five years or so
- The workplace is moving towards more flexible arrangements where individuals are working with multiple companies at the same time
- “Knowledge” work is especially aligned with more flexible work arrangements and can be done from anywhere, thereby creating more value than the traditional work model
- The future of work is not going to be about full-time employment
