    Non-Profit Co-founder & Startup CEO

    Challenge from multifamily commercial real estate investors: principals of two private equity real estate firms (Thrive FP & Comunidad Realty Partners) wanted to formalize a national social impact initiative to help cost-burdened residents in workforce communities they benefitted from as landlords.

     

    Venture Innovation: Rob mapped desired outcomes for success, set targets and bootstrapped product development to beat current baseline impacts through several pilot community initiatives; refined and delivered a unique tax exempt 501c3 public charity focused on cost-burdened communities; recruited a diverse Board of Directors with national reputations to drive mission ambitions; pivoted product deployment from onsite into COVID-ready, live online support for residents through a pandemic so they could achieve better health and wellness.

     

    Product Innovation: Rob designed and launched first national Telehealth partnership focused on health care affordable access to entire communities, bundled with livestream behavioral health intervention classes. Product implementation and delivery met "replicable, scalable and sustainable" criteria AND established an earned-income, community intervention strategy so the non-profit can fund and evolve community impact depth and scale.

    For-Profit Advisor & Angel Investor

    Advisory challenge: Everfest startup Co-founders & CEO wanted to improve company valuation before Series A by developing strategic partners and market growth as the global brand authority on all festivals in the world.

     

    Advisor and team lead: Rob backed, established and led an inside sales team, targeted a merger with a top brand competitor, Fest300. Aligned both endeavors to increase top-line revenue and valuation, captured national brand partners and investors, widened the moat in preventing new market entrants, making Everfest's A round a quality success.

     

    Update: Everfest.com was acquired in January 2020.

     

    Similar advisory and angel projects: Broad Reach Engineering (acquired by MOOG); GeoOptics; Planet IQ.

    Global Impact Architect / Product Innovator

    Challenge from a university public/private impact partnership: UT Austin RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service and Dell.com wanted a global social innovation challenge platform to activate student social entrepreneurs across the world... but they only had a business plan competition as their baseline format.

     

    Product Innovation: Rob refined clarity on exactly what type global student entrepreneurship growth they wanted (i.e. more diversity than MBAs and engineering students) and threw out the business plan competition format; he designed a new, ground-breaking innovation challenge format using five simple questions all global cultures and venture disciplines could easily understand to accelerate Idea, Design, Pilot, Scale and Exit success. Rob created a concierge desk of venture support services (e.g. pro bono legal, marketing, impact investor intros), designed scoring and award criteria to engage 100s of judges and global award sponsors; Rob also traveled the world to recruit top school faculties and student teams and brought the entire initiative to market as the Dell Social Innovation Challenge.

     

    Global Impacts: Rob's integrated product suite and value proposition was powerful enough to activate more than 300,000 registered participants from diverse cultures across 100 countries, award more than $350k to venture teams and accelerate ~6,000 social entrepreneurs and founders to improve our world by accelerating their ambitious visions into reality.

     

    All product innovation design and delivery plus global market scale impacts within 18 months.

     

    Update: the Dell Social Innovation Challenge platform product was spun out into a for-profit, learning development online platform and raised a $2.5 M seed round as a social enterprise. Find out more at Verb

     

    Similar impact design and delivery of platforms: University of San Diego Social Innovation Challenge (Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge); City of San Antonio Mayor's Office & Economic Development Department Launch SA Venture Challenge.

    Social Impact Scale & Sustainability Architect

    Challenge from a charitable think tank: The Rensselaerville Institute wanted to grow a community self help program (STEP) success in New York to a larger scale impact across the entire nation.

     

    Sustainability Architecture: redesigned an EPA grant and Ford Foundation PRI funded initiative into statewide, public–private investment partnerships. Piloted, replicated and scaled these partnerships into self-sustaining operations across 16 states (with state agencies as sustaining exit partners), saving many millions of dollars in public and philanthropic spending, of which Texas STEP became the highest-performing, scalable model (and got me to move to Austin)!

     

    Scale Impacts: brought first-time, clean drinking water to several 100,000 residents in hundreds of poor and rural communities across the nation – people living without clean drinking water in their communities and who otherwise wouldn't have gotten it. Won several HUD Blue Ribbons for our state partners.

     

    Bonus Innovation: turned the Institute's grant-funded, revenue drawdown program into a fee revenue social impact, earned income program, bringing millions of dollars in top line revenue to support operations and drive scalable, sustainable results to national significance.

     

    Won three state governors' awards (Maryland, Virginia & Texas) in the process.

     

    Update: STEP public private partnerships continue delivering benefits to communities after 20 years through state agency partners; ongoing community sparkplug initiatives continue improving lives in communities, led by Institute staff. See more at The Rensselaerville Institute

    California Online Privacy Protection Act
    CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.
    
    According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:
    Users can visit our site anonymously Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

    COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
    
    We do not specifically market to children under 13.
    
    Fair Information Practices
    The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
    
    In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
    We will notify the users via email
    Within 7 business days
    We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
