Michelle Long

Michelle Long is the outgoing (October 2017), founding Executive Director of BALLE: Be a Localist, a network of 125,000+ community entrepreneurs, local investors and place-based foundations. Founded in 2001, BALLE’s purpose is to nurture and curate the emergence of a new economy – one that will gradually displace our destructive and failing economy with a system that supports the health, prosperity, and happiness for all people and regenerates the vital ecosystems upon which our economy depends. Michelle is currently moving into a role as co-founder of Jubilee, a new initiative focused on joyfully preparing the next generation of investors to meet this moment and to defend the sacred.
