"Are you an entrepreneur desiring to create a platform for social good? In the early stages of your non-profit venture and need assistance with developing your growth strategy? Have a passion for impacting the world and wanting to design a corporate social responsibility strategy that works for your business?"
"My name is T.J., and I'm a social entrepreneur with a passion for impacting communities. As a philanthropist, I believe that education and entrepreneurship are the keys to uplifting socially & economically-disadvantaged communities… that everyone (particularly our veterans) should be equipped with the resources to explore the full range of their interests and professional ambitions… and that through the open sharing of resources and information we can empower communities to build and create "emerging" economies of innovation, wealth, & social impact! In 2012 I launched eMerging Entrepreneurs, Inc.; a non-profit platform that provides entrepreneurship training to early-stage startups and social ventures (50% of which are veteran-owned). With programs ranging from our eLaunch™ online training academy to the Urban Leadership Lab™ for college-ready youth, we’ve engaged over 4,500 entrepreneurs and 1,500 youth through an assortment of educational programs. For these efforts, I've received a number of endorsements, among them President Obama’s “Champions of Change” Award, and the US Small Business Administration’s “Veterans Entrepreneurship Advocate of the Year” Award."
"I hope to share my expertise in designing non-profit and socially driven enterprises with entrepreneurs who share my passion for impacting the world through social enterprise, and who wish to explore ways of leverage our shared capacity to serve communities in need".
