THE STORY:

In a world where Antarctica is melting, severe impact hunger impacts nearly 800 million people, over 30% of the world population lacks access to effective water sanitation, and social unrest continues to rise sharply, we have a moral obligation to reimagine the role of business in society and its importance moving forward. To drive the shift to sustainable economies powered by social enterprise, it must take hold with our future leaders. 

What exactly are we doing?

Through Impactathons, we facilitate idea generation for university students to develop real businesses, and we then provide the consulting and funding resources they need to scale their businesses. We are seven people on three continents in four time zones, and we have overcome many challenges that distance can create (distance does make the heart grow fonder, after all!). Despite our super-human abilities to take important calls at 2:30 in the morning and to decipher conversations through bad internet connections, we still need some resources to take this to the next level. 

Why are we crowdfunding?

Our first pilot program is just over one month away, and we are so close to delivering a weekend full of impactful idea generation, inspiring guest speakers, and the groundwork to build paradigm-shifting businesses around the world. We will then be running subsequent pilots in Seattle, U.S., Cape Town, South Africa, and Manila, Philippines through mid-2017. We have international support from the likes of UN Women of Singapore, Givola Labs, Enactus, Curved Line Living, and Crowdrise, and now we invite you to be our next partner. You have the chance to join and support our mission to empower students all over the world to shape the future we all want through social entrepreneurship. We are currently unsalaried and are fueled purely by our vision, and now we’re asking for your support.

See below for a detailed description of our funding allocation. Every contribution counts!

Own Your Brilliance

This is a direct to organizer fundraiser.

Each of us on the team strive to live environmentally and socially conscious lifestyles, and now we are taking that to the extreme!

With each donation, you can nominate a member of our team to do one of the below challenges associated with the dollar amount you contribute.

$50 Donation

Team member will walk, bike or skate to work. When fossil fuels like petroleum or diesel are burned they give off carbon dioxide.

$250 Donation

Team member will eat on a dollar for a day. More than one billion people in the world live on less than one dollar a day. In total, 2.7 billion struggle to on less than two dollars per day.

$500 Donation

Team member will cook and eat vegan for 1 week and donor will receive a personalized recipe dedicated to him or her. We are each already vegetarians, but let's take into account dairy: millions of farmers worldwide tend approximately 270 million dairy cows to produce milk.

$1000 Donation

Team member will not shower for 5 days. A 'Power Shower', like ones in developed countries, uses 125 litres in less than 5 minutes.

$5000 Donation
