Patrons of Change

This was a podcast where my friend Lucas Parry and I explored topics including entrepreneurship, technology, philanthropy, social justice, our environment and other issues affecting our world and ways that we can make an impact. We retired the show after the pitch competition, but had a lot of fun doing it along the way!

Growing Angels

We all feel like we have a million-dollar idea that if we could just get it started, could really change the world.  But many times businesses need a little capital behind them to get the idea out of your head and into the real world. In this episode of the Patrons of Change podcast we spoke with Rachael Qualls who is the founder of the Angel Capital Group, a collection of angel investors who get together to do just that... fund ideas that change the world.  We discuss what an angel investor is, what they are looking for and how to get your idea to them.  Its a great time and I hope you enjoy it!

We hope you enjoy listening to the conversation, and join in yourself by going to our newly implemented web site and participating in the forums, or by leaving a voicemail anytime by dialing (xxx) xxx-xxxx, or emailing us at

If you’re a founder of a business anywhere in the Nashville area, remember to jump on our forum page and let us know where you'd like to come out and join us at our next Entrepreneurial Meetup which will be on Tuesday, July the 8th, 7:00pm in Brentwood/Cool Springs. This is a place for entrepreneurs to informally discuss their business free of customers, investors, employees and spouses to help and encourage others to move forward in their businesses. Come on out and have a beer, it is always a good time. We look forward to seeing you there!
