Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: http://bit.ly/joindevin.

Shri Ajvalia, Global Medical Affairs, Project Management at Janssen Pharmaceuticals (a subsidiary of our sponsor Johnson & Johnson), has conducted two successful crowdfunding campaigns on CaringCrowd. He joined us to share his passion and insights.

In two separate campaigns, Shri raised money to fight human trafficking and gun violence. Neither is a top of mind public health issue, but both certainly are health issues that are impacting the public.

CaringCrowd, a crowdfunding site sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, is focused exclusively on public health nonprofits. That definition focuses not on interventions and activities but on outcomes, allowing for a broad range of nonprofits to raise money on the platform.

In our discussion, Shri shared some insights about what he’s learned from his crowdfunding success. Learn more by tuning in to the full interview above.

Jason encourages nonprofits to build real relationships with donors who can give significant amounts of money, sharing a story of a career highlight when he mentored a small nonprofit that had established a weak relationship with a big donor and was on the brink of losing her.

Inspired by Visa’s cooperative ownership structure, Michael Dillhyon, founder and board member of Healthbank Cooperative, has created a novel way for people to keep and own their health and medical records. Envisioned as a global solution and based in Switzerland, the co-op has 270,000 members, giving it a credible start.

The members of the co-op each have one vote in corporate decisions, regardless of their ownership. The co-op itself owns the data and an operating subsidiary that is working actively to grow the business. The co-op controls the subsidiary, but some financial returns will go to investors.

Co-op member, Otto Philipp Braun, who is the managing director for Metamorphoses, says, “The cooperative offers an individual, safe and transparent way to use healthcare data.” He also expressed appreciation for the oversight the co-op provides to the corporate subsidiary.

Healthbank CEO, Reto Schegg, 49, joined me for a recorded discussion, which you can watch in the player at the top of this article. He describes Healthbank as a “data for good” project. “We deliver trust and enable world-changing services under the full control of the user.”

One of the world’s leading experts on philanthropy, Phil Buchanan, president of the Center for Effective Philanthropy and author of the book Giving Done Right, joined me to share insights about philanthropy. His fundamental premise is that giving effectively is more difficult than getting money for most philanthropists.

He first notes that while the nonprofit sector is much maligned--perhaps because there are still problems in the world--it’s work is both important and generally effective. Philanthropy is different from investing--in many ways more difficult--and requires a unique set of skills. He also argues that nonprofits must by their nature collaborate rather than compete.

Stephen McKeon joined us to talk about security tokens. As the chief strategy advisor for Security Token Academy, he is an expert in the issuance of security tokens.

Stephen explains that security tokens are digital securities, built on blockchain technology.

The advantages of security tokens include the ability to trade them more efficiently than traditional securities because they incorporate security, including a universally accepted record of ownership such that even after lots of trading, everyone agrees on who owns the securties.

The market around security tokens really only began to develop about two years ago but it is accelerating quickly now as the use case for blockchain technology for trading securities really works.

Dr. Heidi Stieglitz Ham, an expert in cognitive psychology with a focus on autism, is working to put adults on the autism spectrum in greater control of their lives. The nonprofit she founded, Spectrum Fusion, works to help provide meaningful, strategic connections to people who often feel isolated and alone.

She calls the experience a Reactor Room. By working with an adult on the spectrum to identify a dream, goal, business idea or creative desire, the organization builds a team of reactors to hear and react to the idea.

The reactors, as the audience members are called, then work to help the individual develop or refine a plan to bring the vision into reality. The exercise serves to transform lives both by helping the individual to realize their full potential and by connecting them with a community of support so they are no longer isolated.
