Navigation and Referral Services
Navigator and Resource Hub
Seeking an on-ramp to the entrepreneur ecosystem in Oregon? Not sure how to navigate the plethora of business development and support in Portland? Looking for a supportive environment to discover and validate your ideas or develop a roadmap to success?
XXcelerate has joined forces with The Goodness Collaborative, a group of community builders that provide guidance through significant moments of transition. We have designed a set of tools and experiences that help an individual navigate various moments of change – to catalyze and activate around a set of goals. We know this is particularly useful for aspiring entrepreneurs, ideators, early stage founders and founders seeking to pivot, adapt, grow or exit. Combined with XXcelerate’s knowledge of the startup landscape and pool of expert coaches - our navigation hub is an excellent springboard for receiving supportive services.
We offer three services at our Navigation Hub. These are available to anyone, regardless of gender. Services are available on a sliding scale based on how vulnerable you are to systemic barriers.
Intention Setting & Referral Session
Schedule a one hour session with our team to profile your journey to date and receive referrals. Based on a questionnaire, we determine your needs, the stage you are at and what services may be the best fit given your desired destination. We have a plethora of community resources we would like to connect you to!
Discovery and Support Mapping
More of an experience, this two hour session of self-exploration is a foundation for action. Map out what you are trying to achieve as an individual, start setting some goals, identify some pathways and your strengths and weaknesses. Support mapping will allow you to better understand the resources that exist within your sphere of influence - helpful in developing a mindset of abundance versus scarcity.
Are you new to entrepreneurship and feel lost? Or need a hand understanding the steps to getting your vision off the ground? Making a transition and need support to pivot? Our roadmapping services will pair you with a coach to help you strategize your unique journey with a tangible action plan and resources that you may leverage along the way. Roadmapping is also available to members of our peer mentorship and education cohort programs.
We are currently piloting these services and will have them available to the community Spring 2020!
We provide an inclusionary space for womxn entrepreneurs to transform boardrooms, executive suites, investor meetings, and banks to be diverse and equitable.
