    • Harnessing the impact of athlete’s work as humanitarians through social enterprise development & media www.invisionfoundation.org
    • Objectives  Empowering athletes to become entrepreneurs who are creating positive change in the world  Providing local entrepreneurs with the resources necessary to create large-scale positive impact  Sharing the power that social entrepreneurship has with a large audience, ultimately inspiring others to take action
    • Necessary steps 1. Bring on target athletes who are passionate about giving back and are interested in starting a business that helps solve a social problem in their home country 2. Connect each athlete with an entrepreneur currently living in the athlete’s home country 3. Assist the athlete/entrepreneur in the steps required to successfully start the proposed business
    • Necessary steps cont. 4. Hire a production company to film the work being done, highlighting:  The athlete and entrepreneur’s background stories and how they have come together to make change happen (two journey's that started in the same place and have now joined forces to accomplish something they are passionate about)  The people, culture, and current situation in the country  The challenges, successes, and exciting moments occurring throughout the business startup process  The athlete’s work training and competing in his/her sport  The athlete’s involvement with his/her social business 5. Distribute content to a major television network
    • Why social business? We recognize that many athletes currently have foundations enabling them to give back in various ways; however, a new model for creating change has shifted the playing field. Social business combines the tools used to run a profitable business with the mission of a non-profit, resulting in the following:  Self-sustaining enterprises that generate profits  no longer have to rely on outside funding  Job creation for people in the developing country  sustainable way to help eradicate poverty  Ability to rapidly scale in size  have a greater impact by reaching more people
    • Our team Orion Falvey:  Honored as the first ever Oregon Student Impact Entrepreneur of the Year in 2013  Co-founder of a local social business, ORCHID Health Collective aiming to bring quality, accessible, and affordable health care to rural communities across the state  Awarded as a Freeman Fellow to work in social business in Phnom Penh, Cambodia this past winter Ashley Evert:  Presidential Scholar at the University of Oregon, Graduated June 2013 with: B.S. Business Administration, Entrepreneurship Concentration, Economics Minor  Semester at Sea Fall 2012: visited 15 countries in four months while studying social entrepreneurship around the Atlantic Ocean, saw first-hand the positive impact social business creates
    • Our role  We are the “matchmakers” connecting athletes with social entrepreneurs  By building relationships in both the social entrepreneurship and professional athlete sectors, we hope to create opportunities for powerful and sustainable change  Form partnerships with existing non-profits who share a similar vision  Help bring in funds to start the social enterprises  Oversee the filming and production
    • Athletes  InVision Athletes:  Passionate about creating change in their home country  Interested in starting a business  Willing to travel to their home country several times per year  Conscious of the potential impact their celebrity status has and interested in leveraging it for the greater good  What’s in it for them:  Provided with a business support system through being paired with a social entrepreneur and startup team  Good PR for the athlete and their foundations  Opportunity to create a business that will extend beyond their athletic careers  great retirement/”second career” plans
    • Entrepreneurs  Experienced in starting successful businesses in the region of the world the athlete is interested in supporting  Knowledgeable of local political, environmental, and social climates  Passionate about building better communities and improving the quality of life in their home country  Excited about the opportunity to work with a professional athlete in order to create the most impactful model possible
    • Sharing the story  The old saying goes “I’ll believe it when I see it”… we strongly believe in this  Visual exposure of the positive work that respected professional athletes are doing around the world will inform an entirely new audience [sports fans] to the idea of social entrepreneurship  Exposure Understanding Caring Action Change  By sharing these stories we will activate fans across multiple generations to help make the world a better place
    • Ex: Project timeline Step 1 • Athlete travels to country, shares with fans his/her background, food, culture, exposes problems that exist Step 2 • Athlete meets with social entrepreneur to brainstorm a solution, start business idea Step 3 • Athlete returns to US to train, shares idea w/ teammates • Entrepreneur stays in country to start the business Step 4 • Entrepreneur + athlete meet up and entrepreneur introduces athlete to the founding team, reviews business plan and timeline Step 5 • Athlete fundraises however he/she wants to provide start up capital for the business, crowd source talent for the business Step 6 • Athlete and entrepreneur meet back up in the country for the grand opening of the business- impact is tracked via InVision website
