Community Spotlight – reSET, the “go-to” place for entrepreneurs with social impact
October 4 @ 7:45 am - 9:00 am
The Walker Group hosts Community Spotlight the first Wednesday each month to bring business leaders together to hear a meaningful message from the community organization spotlighted then enjoy coffee, continental breakfast, and conversation in a casual atmosphere. A great way to start your day!
Community Spotlight guest for May is reSET, a Social Enterprise Trust and non-profit organization whose mission is to advance the social enterprise sector. Joining reSET is entrepreneurial venture Phood, whose software tracks and reports on wasteful pre-consumer food waste practices and identifies behavioral and operational change opportunities to reduce food waste volume by up to 50% and cut costs between 1-5% annually.
Phood provides data-backed insights on how production and forecasting changes, menu planning, and even staff behavior all significantly contribute to our nation’s growing food waste problem.
reSET serves all entrepreneurs, but specializes in social enterprise ― impact driven business with a double and sometimes triple bottom line. In addition to providing co-working space and accelerator and mentoring programs, we aim to inspire innovation and community collaboration, and to support entrepreneurs in creating market-based solutions to community challenges. Our goal is to meet entrepreneurs wherever they are in their trajectory and to help them take their businesses to the next level. Its strategic goals are threefold: to be the “go-to” place for impact entrepreneurs, to make Hartford the Impact City, and Connecticut the social enterprise state.
