Pat McNamara @patapex is a PR dynamo who has found a way to give back! She’s the poster girl of huge heart, self-effacing and ever so humble. She is the super-hero for the underdog entrepreneur!
#Entrepreneurs sometimes fall and fall hard for different reasons and need a second chance. Doesn’t everyone? Pat mentions ever so briefly that she had a second chance and her gratitude jumps out when you see her smile.
As volunteer business judges, we spent the day listening and assessing the top 9 pitches in 3 categories – youth, women, and immigrant – and are at varying stages of start-up. By the end of the day, @IgniteCapital will have awarded $20k to each of the three category winners! Where does this money come from? From Pat’s 3 pockets for 3 entrepreneurs, $60K, to help move an entrepreneur’s dream forward.
This is no Dragon’s Den! Pat and her team have designed a process for cash-strapped, low credit score entrepreneurs (yep, you have to have a credit score LESS THAN 650) to be eligible. 2015 is Year 3 of Pat’s generosity and now is the time for other successful entrepreneurs to step up. Join Pat in helping those who deserve a second chance!
