“StartingBloc has been absolutely crucial to launching Ayllu. We have contacted prominent individuals and institutions that we would have never had access to without the StartingBloc network. The Fellows are living proof that real change is not just about bold ideas, but bold social networks.” - Melissa Richer, NY '08, Founder, Ayllu
