STARTS WITH YOU
Educate and Identify
Enter through a 12-week course where you will be exposed and educated in Spiritual Entrepreneurship (Innovative Theology and Lean Methodology).
You will then self-identify as potential Spiritual Entrepreneur or Spiritual Philanthropist. At the completion of this 12-week course SEs and SPs will have an opportunity to continue on to The Hatchery LA Development Portal.
Support and Network
Have you taken the Certificate in Spiritual Entrepreneurship course? Are you working in a church context or project and in need of a customized program to help implement what you have learned with personal coaching and training for experts?
Spiritual Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to create a custom plan to follow their passion to create a Minimum Viable Benefit project. Hatchery LA defines MVB as:
The Minimum Viable Benefit offers a unique value proposition by fulfilling a discovered need and creating transformation around that need. Working within the ecosystem of your context a hypothesis is developed and tested around a perceived primary need that is informed by:
Developing a Minimum Viable Benefit out of a Spiritual Entrepreneurship framework empowers embodiment of agency not propped up by former models. Rather it is released from constraints that hinder iteration and innovation.
Spiritual Entrepreneurs will go through a process of discerning their passion using innovative theology and the basics of lean methodology/lean canvas to test their hypothesis and create their initial build, measure, learn projects until they have strong findings to move forward.
Spiritual Philanthropists will be able to view the projects and support early stages of MVB projects through a closed kick starter type funding community.
Incubate and Launch
The successful MVB projects can apply for the Hatchery Incubator. If the project is selected and the Spiritual Entrepreneur completes the six- month incubator, they will pitch their project 'Pitch Deck' style.
During this phase Spiritual Philanthropists will be able to sponsor the project through incubation and have the opportunity to participate in the funding of that project through our annual 'Pitch Deck' like event.
