How to Update Your Venture Info:

  • These fields provide a deeper context on your venture status, venture stage of development, the issue area it falls under, the sector of influence, the area of impact you are working towards, and challenges you’re facing. Additionally, there is a custom field you can use to write anything else you want to share about their venture. This could include links to your website, videos, or pictures.

  • Venture Status

  • Venture Stage - referring to the stage of your venture's development

  • Venture Issue Area - the broadest categorization of the sector or issue area your venture is rooted in 

  • Sector to Influence - because the sector or issue area from which a venture operates may differ from the sector(s) it seeks to influence, this is intended to capture the sector(s) targeted by your venture

  • Impact Areas - this drills down further into the specific areas of the sectors you wish to have an impact on

  • My biggest challenge - a space where you may share a challenge that you're looking for support around

  • Learn more about my venture - a free text field where you can add links, pictures, etc.

Filling out these fields will help you better set expectations with each other and improve the experience of those trying to navigate the network and its resources. 
 

This enhanced profile information creates a new resource that will enable you to reach out to one another for support and advice, strengthening the network connections of the AGLN. These settings should updated like an out-of-office message – kept accurate if things change. 
 

It should also be noted that this information is only available if you are logged into the website.  

If you have any questions on these new fields or recommendations for additional information you’d like displayed on your profile, email philip.javellana@aspeninstitute.org
