Education, scholarships & data bright entrepreneurs need: ECO Edu©
Collaborative, open source knowledge and tools to help socially- and environmentally-responsible venture teams, investors and communities grow smarter.
Education powers factories that produce jobs and revitalize communities. Innovation is everywhere and the Beacon Model© will help entrepreneurs, EB-5 Visa founders, postdocs and students to get their ideas into action, into production, into distribution and into our hands as consumers.
Cities and towns in every free state (that coordinates with the SEC) can achieve sustainable economic growth if new business and industry locates in unused buildings, warehouses and factories and in localities in need of revitalization and smart growth. BrightChange wants to work with community leaders interested in bootstrapping community growth by welcoming our members' scalable ventures.
Civic leaders can attract aiWeek Media's hot new companies (with their ESOPs) by supporting local colleges, trade schools, logistics and venture fundraising — NOT by sacrificing local revenue.
But that is only one part of the equation, because companies and factories need quality workers. These employees must have affordable, high quality technical training to compete on a global level. Families need brighter futures and BrightChange can help them to obtain the technical and science education and training that will enable them to live comfortably.
Additionally, employees need to feel a part of their companies' priorities and success. Many member ventures will be employee-owned ESOPs, proven to have higher growth and longevity because their employees are invested in their success, personally and socially, driving successful business within their communities.
Educators and civic leaders can become BEST Advisors and subscribe to aiWeek Media in order to jump into the Virtuous Circle© inspired by the Beacon Model© of financing innovation through alternatives to venture capital.
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire and ECOEdu© is ablaze!
A belief that the power of knowledge, plus the energy of community, burns down barriers of economic growth. (We couldn't agree more, William Butler Yeats.)
