Pollen helps people break down barriers to build better connected communities. Founded in the belief that connecting is about more than exchanging business cards, we share the stories behind individuals, we turn opportunities into realities, and we champion getting off the couch to learn about the world. Started in 2009 by Lars Leafblad to take professional community building to a new level, Pollen uses moments of connection and visceral storytelling to inspire and grow ideas. We engage our readers, members, and followers in new and exciting ways that propel interest and content sharability. On an ongoing basis, Pollen now reaches more than 10,000 actively engaged civic-connectors, entrepreneurs, community-builders, and up-to-somethingers.
