Meet Sarah Mullens, co-founder of UnBoundRVA, an IT4Causes pilot customer. One of our heroes, Sarah is a young educator and business professional who has dedicated herself to building a better Richmond, one small business at a time. Together with her co-founder Richard Luck, Sarah is helping a group of low-income, high-potential people with challenging backgrounds learn the skills they need to succeed as entrepreneurs, including deveolping strong business plans and getting access to the funding they need to create their own jobs.
I asked Sarah what’s on her wishlist this holiday season, and here’s what I got:
- A nice small printer, so Richard doesn’t have to drive 40 minutes one way each time they have to produce a key presentation,
- A donor management system, so they can more effectively raise the dollars they need to complete their mission,
- A learning-management system, so their students can track their progress in their curriculum, and
- Better PCs to enable their fledgling business owners with technology to support their new enterprises.
IT4Causes has got Sarah’s back and is working on solving these IT problems for her, so she and Richard can focus on what they do best. So, before you settle in for dreams of sugarplums, take a second to think of Sarah and all the good she is doing, and help her get her job done by supporting IT4Causes this holiday season!
