Funding Schools Of The Future - Brian Greenberg of Silicon Schools Fund

Impact Hustlers - Entrepreneurs with Social Impact

What changes can be done in the educational system to adapt to being in the 21st century? That is what Brian Greenberg asked himself, and so the Silicon Schools Fund was created. It is a nonprofit organization that supports a new generation of schools and innovative education models, and Brian is here to share what they do, how they do it, and why they do it.Beginning his career dabbling in politics, it was Brian’s later experiences working as a teacher that motivated him to want to improve the learning system. Through hard work and a bit of luck, he was able to start a venture fund that supports a new kind of learning. Not all children learn as quickly or as effectively from the traditional education system, and so the Silicon Schools Fund envisions a more personalized learning program that leverages technology and innovation. As it turns out, there were many wealthy investors who found this to be a meaningful and impactful proposition. Since its inception 10 years ago, they now have worked with over 75 schools in California. Brian explains the three types of schools in the American education system, how they select and fund schools, and what it takes for that school to actually open, teach students, and break even. He also talks about the long road ahead to truly make an impact in the way kids are being taught. If you’re an entrepreneur who is interested in the education space and seeking advice on how to go about it, you’ll want to listen to this episode.Brian’s key lessons and quotes from this episode were:“The difference is, whereas venture capitals [are] raising money from limited partners and investing it for profit, we are raising money from limited partners and investing it for social impact.” (11:24)“What if we unlocked this amazing potential of the kids really caring about what they were doing and having a chance to have a little more control over the speed or topics that they were covering?” (23:28)“Anyone who says this will be easy, you should just walk away from them. Anyone who says it's impossible, you should run away from them.” (33:24)“If we don't solve making education more equitable and more effective for everybody, we will never have the kind of society we want.” (33:38)“Get closer to the action, so you can understand what the real problem is, and try to build solutions that matter.” (39:13)In this episode, we also talked about:What led Brian to founding Silicon Schools Fund and the kind of schools they support (3:47)How the Silicon Schools Fund operates (11:11)How they select schools (18:30)Entrepreneurship in the education space (27:26)How Brian sees the world in 10 years if Silicon Schools Fund succeeds (39:36)Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/impacthustlers)

Housing Options for the Unsheltered with Brian Greenberg - Episode 9

The Missing Conversation

Brian Greenberg, PhD, manager of Life Moves, joins host Robert Strock to discuss the current and growing needs among the unsheltered population. Life Moves is the largest comprehensive homelessness program in Northern California. It focuses on providing amenities like private/public showers and toilets along with connecting participants with job opportunities, housing support, and health services. When less expensive housing options have basic privacy, it provides incentives that bring people off of the streets. Organizations like Life Moves work to provide a maximum amount of services at a minimal cost. Greenberg's program works with psychology masters and PhD interns to provide needed mental health services at a fraction of ordinary cost for these mental health services. The program also views people as people. People can go through the program multiple times even if they relapse or make a bad choice. As long as they’re trying to move forward in their lives and follow the rules that leave everyone in the community feeling safe, they can continue to work within the Life Moves program. However, expanding affordable housing requires broadening the scope of housing options. Tiny homes, travel trailers, and shipping containers all offer shelter at a more affordable cost. Creating a community for the unsheltered also centers around support from peers, the local community, and law enforcement. There’s a great need for society to view the unsheltered as people who need and deserve compassion and opportunities Listen to the episode and find out more at: The Global Bridge Foundation
