Chris Baiocchi, founder and CEO of consulting firm Resolute Philanthropy, is hired by social enterprise visionary RevHubOC to direct development.
Irvine, CA, December 2022 | Announcing the hire of a director with over two decades of non-profit expertise, RevHubOC pushes forward on its mission to continue shaping the social enterprise ecosystem in Orange County.
Appointed to oversee the fund development for RevHubOC’s programs, Chris Baiocchi is the founder and CEO of Resolute Philanthropy, a consulting firm formed to equip non-profit leaders for survival. His two decades of expertise in leading fundraising efforts, annual giving campaigns, planned special events, and written grants will be a welcome asset to RevHubOC’s mission. As a social enterprise incubator, RevHubOC fosters economic growth and empowerment within the OC community and beyond, creating opportunities and drive systemic change through entrepreneurship.
RevHubOC President and CEO Stephan Erkelens is focused on shaping the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Orange County first, before venturing into the rest of the state, the nation, and eventually the world at large.
“OC is an emerging sector and economic driver, spawning new jobs where potential millions are being employed to benefit society, the environment, and other valuable causes,” says Erkelens. “Local foundations, churches, corporations, universities, and the OC public sector all encourage innovation here.”
A long-time innovator of the coffee industry, Erkelens co-founded RevHubOC with the support of other seasoned professionals who have a proven track record in charitable giving, business, finance, and social enterprise. Compelled by a unified vision, the group strives to create a better mechanism to fund and sustain social enterprises both at home and around the world. Fueled by the expertise and know-how of leaders like Baiocchi, RevHubOC has become a collaborative ecosystem of like-minded individuals where both founders and funders are able to accelerate the impact of nascent social enterprises.
