    I’m looking to scale Santa for Veterans. Currently, the project makes no money and has no expenses, which is kind of cool… but, there is little room for growth and it 100% relies on volunteers. I would love to be able to pay a small staff to make this project happen every Christmas. As a still serving member of the CAF, with currently zero intent of retiring in the next ten years, I need help taking this to the next level.

    I don’t need the people in my learning group to be Not-for-Profit business people, and after reading the introductions, I don’t see any other Non-Profit or Not-for-Profit people so far. I’m happy to learn alongside anyone.

    I have a Master of Arts in Leadership Degree from Royal Roads University (2022 Grad), which the training included a little design thinking and systems thinking among many other things (including an elective in Strategic Planning). I’m looking forward to assisting others with their growth in anyway possible.

    …and I like long walks on the beach! 🙂

    Cheers,

    Leslie,

    Historically, we have had a least 1 participant in each progrm cohort with a focus on nonprofit. Erin and I have both have lots of nonprofit experience and knowledge, so consider us a support.

    Also, the perspectives of the other participants can be valuable as they can look at your model from a donor, recipient, family, etc. perspective.

    I see the value, and am so grateful for the opportunity to learn from you both and also the rest of the learners 🙂

    All,

    It looks like there is not a large number of us in this forum, so I suggest the ones who have posted here (Mark Nasmith, Daniel Larente, Leslie Blair, Myself) form our own Peer learning Group. Perhaps it will stick past the Bootcamp and can become a sort of “Mastermind” of Veteran Entrepreneurs

    Cheers,

    Kyle
