Reverse the problem of food insecurity, workforce, and economic development through community gardens and landscaping initiatives. These initiatives also teach practical life skills to youth, adults and seniors, keeping them out of jail, away from negative influences in the neighborhood, and engaging them as productive citizens of their community. Substance abuse, addiction, homeless, mental disabilities, Tiger Mountain goes all in to supply individuals the road to get back on track and to fulfill life.
Small daily improvements are the key to long term results. Taking a deeper look to a clear mind and self-discipline, problems can be overcome and even lead to unexcepted gains.
TigerMountain Foundation provides workforce/economic initiatives, Personal Strategy Roadmap transition and transformation and healthy lifestyles and more active living through its Community Building through Community Gardens initiatives.
Darren Chapman has spent his life wanting to give back to his community, however the ups an down of growing up in a challenged area would not always make this goal true.
Darren did well in school, but also experienced discontent with his placement in life and that led to a journey of peaks and valleys fraught with discovery, both good and bad.

About Your Co-Hosts
With a background in marketing, in various for profit and not for profit companies, Kyle McIntosh wondered, “How can I pair the passion and commitment to community progress of a non-profit with the sustainability and reach of a for profit company?” From this question and perspective a mission evolved to tear down the false distinction between the two sectors and to promote companies with Conscious Capitalism® business models through MAC6.
Kyle is the President and Creative Excitant of MAC6. Day to day, his main operational role is on the “spaces” side of the business, focusing on creating thriving communities in the commercial office buildings, the co-working space, and the co-manufacturing space. The other role that he plays is that of EOS implementer, working with clients to bring the Entrepreneurial Operating System, from the book Traction® to their businesses. Additionally, he sits on the boards of Conscious Capitalism Arizona, telling the stories of good businesses in Arizona, and The Tempe Chamber of Commerce, sustaining Tempe’s quality of life and keeping our community and economy vibrant.
Kyle loves Arizona and wants to see us all collectively find great success based on the awesome things that are happening here every day.
Scott McIntosh Co-Founded MAC6 with his son Kyle in 2011 after he grew and sold a $50M (annual revenue) mining engineering business.
After six years of working operationally in the business, Scott now sits on the ownership team and works strategically with the invested company portfolio, utilizing EOS® to strengthen the leadership teams.
