We have been busy over here at (the newly renamed) Awakened Innovations.  With our continued progress, we decided this name better fits our purposes:

  1. To “Awaken” service providers to help nonprofits in innovative ways;
  2. To “Awaken” nonprofits to easily identify quality service providers to help them pursue their mission.

At this point, we have 3 members:

  1. Michael Barnes, founder and CEO
  2. Sandy Nagel, 20 years consulting for and working with nonprofits.
  3. Malcolm Tester is designing our online platform to improve the efficiency and experience for our clients.

We have enrolled in The Founder Institute.   FI is the world’s premier idea-stage accelerator and startup program.  While we are a bit beyond the idea stage…Their curriculum is helping us with structure, accountability, and mentorship to make sure we continue our journey on the right foot.

Would you like to help nonprofits through Awakened Innovations?

  • We are always looking for more high-quality service providers to interview to see if they fit our requirements.
  • We are looking to speak with leaders from the nonprofit community.
  • Do you know any entrepreneurial-minded folks who might enjoy what we are doing?  Send them my way!
