“Michael Woodnorth and Woodnorth Advisory have been essential to helping me confidently take the next steps in my benefit company’s seed round. His insight, expertise and experience in the impact investing space really helped us shape our approach, and his excellent research helped strengthen our case. Michael is a pleasure to work with and an excellent resource. I only wish we’d met him sooner!” 

Bailey Foster

Founder of Real Good Kitchen

“Wow!  Very impressive and proves out this is a viable business model.  Great to see that many of our thought processes were backed up by the data.  I can only imagine this material is worth its weight in gold to present to investors.” 

Melonie Levernier

CFO of ViaSana

“Michael was an integral part of establishing organizational structure to our nonprofit. He evaluated the needs of Faithfully Restored and structured our meeting so that every exercise led to a productive conversation. Not only did we leave the meeting with tangible goals and strategies, Michael provided the steps necessary for us to achieve our goals and move our nonprofit forward. We would highly recommend Michael to help take your organization to the next level.”

Jamie Heard

Executive Director of Faithfully Restored

“Michael was very professional and invested in the project. His work will directly impact our budding organization in a positive way by generating revenue and contributing to our sustainability. The research was thorough and easy to understand. He approached the project with a fresh outlook and provided a long term revenue projection and recommendations that our committee was very impressed by. I would highly recommend working with Michael for any program/non-profit that needs a comprehensive pricing strategy for their products and services.”

Keyuana Rosemond

Program Director of FitKids360

"I highly recommend Woodnorth Advisory to anyone working in the social innovation space. Michael works along side his clients as if he were a part of the team. He leverages his ever expanding diverse network of organizations to maximize his clients ability to fund their vision. His robust knowledge of the social space enabled our team to develop strategies for engaging potential funding partner we would never have pursued otherwise.  We will for sure be turning to him again for our next round of funding and strategy planning."

Josh Burnett

Founder & CEO of Flourish

"Earlier this year, I was ready to quit my business and chalk it up to being a bad year or a bad idea. Then I started working with Michael and we were able to identify what areas I needed to focus my attention as well as opportunities that I hadn't even considered. His professionalism paired with his approachable attitude makes it so easy to work with him. Michael's commitment to non-profits and social enterprises made it easier to trust him and the recommendations he provided as most don't understand the unique challenges social enterprises face. Thanks Michael!!"
