Be The Difference
Organized by: Brandon Davis
The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise funds to scale our efforts. The last big grant we received was in 2011 from the Pepsi Refresh Project for $25,000. We were able to create The Dreaming Building, a 3,600 sq ft. experimental workspace for brands, products, artists, entrepreneurs and creative minds alike. Since its inception, The Dreaming Building has worked with over 300 entrepreneurs and helped them generate over $300,000 in revenue to power their dreams by utilizing our space, as well as through unique programming like the Pop Up Mall and Pop Up Food Court.
This year, we want to work with more entrepreneurs and help them generate more revenue by creating more revenue streams for them to grow their company. Instead of helping entrepreneurs generate over $300,000 in revenue, we would like to help them generate over a million dollars in the next 2-3 years and work with over 1000 entrepreneurs. In addition we would like to continue to grow our platform in the media world to better introduce up and coming brands, artists, products and entrepreneurs to the masses.
We need you to be the difference between $300,000 and $1,000,000. We need you to be the difference between us working with 300 entrepreneurs and 1000 entrepreneurs. We are asking today if you can Be The Difference by donating!
