Lee Shainis - Non-profit Entrepreneur

I first met Lee Shainis a couple of years ago at an introductory meeting for Boulder's Social Venture Partners.  Like many other entrepreneurs, he and his co-founder, Shawn Camden, started Intercambio de Comunidades because they saw an opportunity and they believed that they could get something off the ground that would make the world a better place.  They had very little money and they had never run a non-profit or any other organization for that matter, but they believed they could do it.  That's all it took to get started, a strong belief in an idea and the willingness to take the first step.

Intercambio is now almost six years old, but I know from talking to Lee that his vision is great and that the organization is really just getting started.  Lee's making a difference and just last week he started a blog about his experience as a non-profit entrepreneur.  Check out Lee's blog here, and if you would like to know more about Intercambio, click here.
