In that drive folder you will see the following:
There are so many great resources, organizations and people who take the time to help.
There are so many great resources, organizations and people who take the time to help, but it sometimes feels like an innumerable universe of single points of failure. It’s difficult to scale, with both people and knowledge changing in real time.
So we’ve set up an initial start of an open source resource hub.
Since this will be a community accessible/editable hub, there are some baseline rules around using and adding to it.
– I hope this goes without saying, but we will monitor the hub for people who are being disrespectful in any way.
– We have tabs for service providers and resources such as co-packers, but we don’t want this to be a hub where people come on and try and tout how great they are and why you should use them. Founders and leaders should be adding to the list so if you are a service provider, your clients/customers should be the ones adding your information. New to the community, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help get you looped in.
The community will have edit access because this information should not live behind a paywall or membership commitment. Our hope is that this will be an ever changing set of documents that founders can access.
Peer to Peer Groups
Our goal is to hold the space for founder-led collaboration, not lead the sessions. However when a concrete need bubbles up through these sessions, Built can do the research, seek solutions, and bring them back to the group. Be it a topic-area expert or catalyzing collaborative project.
We believe that these sessions should, and truly need to be run by the founders. We are seeing how it works to have one for Food & Beverage (Shelf Life), one for Apparel, Outdoor & Footwear (Work in Progress) and one for Health, Beauty & Wellness (Personal Care). As with everything we do at Built, having three separate groups may ultimately fall under one. We’ll just listen to all of you and make adjustments as needed.
If you are interested you can sign up here.
Final Note: There is no cost to participate. Helping to create relationships that may help – even a little bit – with the stress and mental health toll being a founder has to be barrier free.
