Blue Morning is all about local, mission-driven entrepreneurs.
At Blue Morning, we’re interested in answering a few questions:
- How should smaller cities support local entrepreneurs?
- What are the best growth strategies for businesses that do not have unicorn potential?
- How can we eliminate the stigma around profitable businesses that also have real, meaningful missions?
These are questions that a lot of our favorite organizations are thinking about. Revolution’s Rise of the Rest is focused on unleashing innovation across the entire country, not just the large coastal cities. In the United States, the creation of the benefit corporation is beginning to change the way that companies are founders. And at Indie.vc, they proudly display a video of a flaming unicorn to demonstrate their belief that the future is in real, profitable businesses, not fantastical beasts.
These are tough questions, but we think we have some of the answers right here in Charlottesville, Virginia. We’ve thrown out the standard accelerator playbook and are developing our own approach that leverages the expertise, talents, and resources found right here in our beautiful city.
