Presentation: Profits for Purpose

EATS2SEATS provides fundraising opportunities for nonprofits by partnering with stadium concessions to meet staffing needs during sports and entertainment events. EATS2SEATS restructures staffing operations through a mobile technology and business platform that allows nonprofits to sign up to work concession stands during specific times that fit their schedules, staffing capacities, and fundraising goals. My Innovation Showcase presentation will focus on the importance of community and rebuilding community as we emerge from the pandemic. Specifically, I will discuss how businesses can use profits for purpose and scale impact with a mission-driven approach that centers operations around people and the communities they serve.
