Myles Lutheran has led a varied life. He’s managed a rock band, worked in real estate and finance and has recently finished a funding round for Eco Fuels Kenya – his nut-based bio fuel company. Born in the U.S. he currently lives in Kenya. Now that he’s raised the money he needs to run his company he has to get to the actual work of running a company. In the meantime though, he spent some time in the booth to talk about how he was able to raise $1.5 million from impact investors and foundations and the importance of conserving time but also taking risks with your time.
Unfunded List’s Wine Grants Podcast gathers philanthropists, entrepreneurs, and changemakers of all stripes. Hosted by Dave Moss, who started Unfunded List in 2015 to help make sure that the next generation of changemakers get the feedback and recognition they need to be successful. Our mission is to demystify and open the door to private philanthropy for the general public while providing a platform for our guests to discuss their life’s work.
Unfunded List reviews funding proposals twice annually from small and mid-size nonprofits and social impact startups. The 300+ philanthropy experts on our evaluation committee give helpful and candid feedback about each grant proposal’s weaknesses & strengths. Then we publish the best proposals to our list that we circulate to a rolodex of foundations and philanthropists in the hopes that we can find some funding and partnerships for these amazing unfunded proposals. Unfunded List is always accepting proposals at www.unfundedlist.com/submit-your-proposal. We invite your org to join the Unfunded List awardees and 100+ other projects that our funding evaluators have given feedback to since 2015. Find out more and submit at www.unfundedlist.com.
