Cara Esposito

Executive Director, Leonetti/O’Connell Family Foundation

What work did Seedling do with you?

I worked with the Seedling team on the research component of my dissertation for USC. We analyzed data related to intrinsic transaction costs and benefits within the Magnolia Community Initiative network.


What is it like to work with Seedling?

Excellent. The Seedling team was incredibly professional and very helpful regarding framing the evaluation study to ensure the most robust response rate. I was on a rather tight timeline, and everything was delivered on time so I could finish and graduate.


In what ways has Seedling’s work impacted you?

While the goal was to complete my dissertation, what I learned from the project regarding values provided by supporting governing structures of networks was invaluable moving forward in my role as the executive director of a private foundation.
