    Thanks to all the people at GOOD (including Max S) for sharing this and other thought-provoking, action-inspiring snippets!

    We looked into CROWDIMPACT (thx to GOOD's referral) for Atayne, but it conflicts with another pitch competition that Atayne is a finalist for here in Maine: https://www.gorhamsavingsbank.com/launchpad#. (Check the videos for the finalists out -- and vote for us if you like what you hear! Voting is simple; just an email and zip code.)

    One great thing about the Gorham Savings competition: There were 250 applicants from Maine. All 7 semi-finalists had a greater environmental/ social purpose to their company (including employing more people). The Maine way, perhaps?

    What I can't find on any of these funding sites is another category and that is how to find motivated people who would then apply for funds. We are looking for people interested in healthy food to take our innovation (tempeh incubator) into the market place as a worker owned coop - but where do I make my pitch?
