SOURCE Initiative Links Entrepreneurs and Investors to Bolster Businesses that Benefit Low-Wealth Americans

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

The initiative, SOURCE: Solutions from Our Country’s Entrepreneurs, is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the three organizations that addresses the existing disconnect between investors and entrepreneurs by engaging investors, mentors, and communities early in the business building process.

“SOURCE supports our belief that business has an essential role to play in addressing many of the complex challenges of our time,” said Barbara Dyer, president and CEO of The Hitachi Foundation, the primary funder of the collaboration. “SOURCE will strengthen the U.S. entrepreneurial economy by connecting early stage ventures with investors – creating business solutions for critical social issues.”
