  • @Francene — Mark's credit score came back lower than expected, FICO-2 score that’s used to calculate default risk. Can be massaged, e.g., removing him from credit card, knocked 100 bps off mortgage rate

Move your To-Do’s to Asana if that’s how you like to work 🙂


  • Progress with capital collectives:
    • Carrie and the team working with ZU to grow the Regen capital collective
    • European Capital Collective: design process with nucleus and partners like the BMW Foundation hopefully kicking off on 7 Sep.
      • We need to kick up the marketing for Thursday, September 8th event in Berlin
    • SE Asia, now called the Adaptive Collective mostly funding women
    • Collective Ownership project: National Co-op Bank may do loan servicing for a product that they themselves may not be able to underwrite [but might be investing in a loan loss reserve]
  • Spin up a mechanism for matching investors with funds like Will’s
  • Advance a marketing campaign, e.g. ZU Medium page takeover, with a “Recessions and Regeneration” article, webinars, social media, etc.
  • Everybody: review and input to Mozilla Foundation proposal
