SpeedSeed is a speed-dating inspired event for both sides of the change-maker equation – people with ideas and energy and people with resources to invest in social and environmental good.

Developed by The GOODNESS Inc, SpeedSeed is an innovative event that brings together people from both sides of the changemaking equation: people who are ready to kick start a community project or a social enterprise (referred to as ‘changemakers’) and people who wish to make a difference through ethical giving, which includes the contribution of time, expertise and resources (we call them ‘changemaker investors’).

Based on the speed dating model, SpeedSeed events enable changemakers and changemaker investors to meet and get to know each other, find out more about the ideas and type of support being sought and ultimately, find their perfect match so they can begin their changemaking journeys.

The recent Sunshine Coast SpeedSeed event was held in Glasshouse Mountains on 22 July 2015. Congratulations to the wonderful change-makers who participated. All received offers of support from the generous and committed group of change-maker investors. If you missed out on participating, don’t worry! Sign up to our newsletter below to be kept informed about our future events. 

Who is SpeedSeed for?

  • Change-makers: individuals or community groups with project ideas or start-up social/environmental enterprises that are brimming with real goodness!
  • Change-maker investors ready to co-create social and environmental change by supporting good, ethical, grassroots projects and enterprises. Anyone can be an investor, even if you have just a few hundred dollars, or volunteer hours, or skills to share, or goods or services to spare.

Bring SpeedSeed to your community

The ability for the SpeedSeed model to be adjusted according to the context and number of participants lends itself for delivery and replication in other cities and regions throughout Australia.  Please view our Speed Seed brochure for more information to bring SpeedSeed to your community, town or city!
