THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY FOR
PURPOSE-DRIVEN LEADERS

We provide the tools, knowledge, mentorship, and support network to help innovators like you build a better business.

Leaders Roundtable Members Share Their Experience

Are you:

Creating a software that helps HR departments hire without discrimination?

Producing a new line of healthy/organic food?

Opening a cafe that employs women in low-income communities?

Impact comes in many shapes and sizes. We love supporting all leaders who are out to make the world a better place.

Some Of Our Alumni

EARLY STAGE SUPPORT

Launching a new venture? Spinning out a new project? Unsure about which support organization to leverage? Can’t commit to an expensive and intensive program?

We recognize that one-size-fits all doesn’t work, and that every leader comes to the table with different skills and experience. Which is why we don’t provide ’’Programs’’ but instead run deep-dive workshop series that not only show you WHAT to do, but walk you through HOW to do it. Pick individual workshops, or bundle them together for a more complete experience.

POST LAUNCH

Got customers? Making under $20k a month? Looking to scale to the next level?

Incubators help with early stage validation, accelerators work with late stage companies. We help those stuck in-between with unlocking growth.

Our in-person and online Leaders Roundtables are designed so that you can leverage the collective knowledge of not only Spring and our network, but also get peer support from fellow leaders like yourself. Think of it as your informal Board of Advisors.

FUNDING READY

Let’s face it, fundraising is not easy. We’re here to eliminate unnecessary friction by helping you avoid rookie mistakes so that you can speed up the process.

We specialize in the seed round (typically $150k-1.5mil). We open doors for you, make investor introductions, help with negotiations, and provide hands-on investor prep support. We do not invest in our own companies – WHY? Because this ensures that we are on your side, and that we have your best interest at heart when it comes to providing support and advice.
