Nominator Justification

Small businesses have a dual purpose: grow their business and give back to the community. Doing good is a part of who they are yet they do it without expectation for their business. seedership helps small businesses differentiate in an authentic way from the good they do. Our digital platform makes it simple for them to track, measure, build and share their community story (an aggregation of all their giving) to achieve greater impact, growth and visibility.
