LIFT Partner Jenny Kassan along with other leading Next Economy pioneers have consistently experienced a bottleneck in the course of their work that inhibits furthering our collective work: expertise in Next Economy law & accounting.  LIFT Economy is convening existing leaders in this space to establish a braintrust around this new breed of lawyers and accountants which are presently far too hard to come by.  We need to bring more intention to creating a pipeline for this new breed of lawyers and accountants that, rather than being an obstacle to implementing new innovative solutions, they can actually enhance and be in service to these solutions by bringing their imagination and creativity and by owning this much needed role in the ecosystem of the Next Economy.

 

Goals:

  • Identify the Next Economy Lawyers & Accountants that exist
  • Create a Training/Certification Program to help build out the field and link those people with places where they are urgently needed (and what sorts of education/training such a program should entail)
