Seeds Podcast with Scott Gilmour (IHAD Chair)

LISTEN: https://seeds.libsyn.com/scott-gilmour-on-founding-i-have-a-dream-nz-and-supporting-kids-growing-up-in-material-hardship

Scott founded ‘I Have a Dream NZ‘ and in this interview we learn all about the impact it is having on the lives of kids through a programme that helps children from low income communities reach their education and career goals by providing a long term programme of mentoring, tutoring, and enrichment.   And by long term, he means long term – the people involved commit to supporting and being involved with the same children from a very young age right through to early adulthood.  It’s an amazing program – more below – but we also find out about Scott’s life and his background in Invercargill, working for Intel in the US and what he learned there about culture and work practises, what he learned working at Intel, impact investing, moving back to NZ and being involved in founding IceAngels one of the first Angel investment groups in New Zealand.
