Counterfeit drugs in India? Not gonna happen. Children exploited and sold into the sex slave industry? Raised money to combat that too. Sarah Spear is an interesting (in a good way) Doer. As a Doer she works full-time as the Executive Director at Arch Grants (an organization focused on being a Community Catalyst). Arch Grants provides non-dilutive seed funding to innovative companies. Those seed funds — and the mentoring/coaching that accompanied the bucks — brought nearly 20 new companies to downtown St. Louis. In our second installment of Doers Done Did, spend some getting to know Sarah Spear.
I might be biased, but I think we’re on to something here positioning OverFundIt as the ultimate grassroots “getting shit done” platform. It’s not just Doers who seem excited, but members of the community are getting jazzed.
OverFundIt will launch in a community soon. Our decision will be based heavily on activity and Doer concentration (and I don’t mean to imply that it will come to your town solely based on positive mental attitude).
