As owner and founder of Social Impact Marketing, Robin Eschler’s work reflects her passion for helping people make a positive impact on the world while enjoying sustainable business success. Her online radio show, Socially Conscious Investing, contains interviews with international social entrepreneurs, scientists, authors and artists.
Late in 2012, crowdfunding caught Robin’s eye as a great way for companies to market test while enjoying pre-production funding. Since then she has consulted with new crowdfunding platforms, helped campaigners and taught crowdfunding through presentations to Rotary, SCORE, SABER, Santa Barbara Business Expo, NAWBO and other groups. Her expertise is expanding into equity crowdfunding with the latest SEC Title III rulings, and recently, cryptocurrency.
Robin’s nonprofit work includes fund raising as well as developing and managing several programs reaching underserved populations including differently-abled people, foster children and at-risk youth, people with physical disabilities, veterans, and for the arts and music as well.
