GREGORY PICKETT: CAREER BANKING PROFESSIONAL
MR. WICKET: PROVIDES WICKET SOLUTIONS TO MITIGATE WICKED PROBLEMS
Modeled slightly after Shark Tanks Mr. Wonderful who is obsessed with getting his investment back at maximum ROI. However, Mr. Wicket cares more about empowering black entrepreneurial communities through business equity ownership in exchange of professional services expertise.
MR WICKET, Superhero and champion in community economic development and finance for black entrepreneurs and black communities. Leverages his vast small business development and finance experience to bring black entrepreneurial communities’ access to a fully integrated capital access network. Unlike traditional bank credit underwriting methodologies utilizing credit scoring as the primary decision tool, Mr. Wicket has designed and developed the social capital index. The sci score leverages a 5 capital model to score each module and then aggregate the respective capital indexes algorithms to get our proprietary social capital index score.
- Financial capital that both pays for expanded project delivery (such as new ambulances or shelter beds) and builds healthy and sustainable organizations. The combination of grants and investments will differ for each intervention, but the complete capital approach will bring sufficient resources to sustain operations, change business models, and facilitate growth.
- Intellectual capital that draws on rapidly expanding evidence about what works and what does not at the business model and systems level.
- Human capital that translates bold ideas into action. More than just a capable management team and board, human capital is the leadership ecosystem of outside advisors, volunteers, and clients that organizations need to thrive in challenging environments.
- Social capital that enables people and organizations unused to working together to collaborate effectively. We will need to reposition government, private funders, organization leaders, and their clients in new relationships. Trust and creativity will be essential for social capital formation, supporting and pushing us to confront our collective challenges and embrace innovative solutions.
THE 5 CAPITAL INDEXES
- FINANCIAL CAPITAL
- INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL
- HUMAN KNOWLEDGE CAPITAL
- SOCIAL IMPACT CAPITAL
