Brownie Points + Startupbootcamp = More Impact!
We are very excited to announce that Brownie Points is in the top 10 selected startups to team up with Startupbootcamp Cape Town!
Startupbootcamp – backed by sponsors: Old Mutual, RCS, BNP Paribas Personal Finance, Nedbank, Woolworths Financial Services and PwC – helps high-growth startups achieve in just 3 months what would normally take 18 months or more.
Brownie Points, together with 9 other scalable, disruptive and transformative startups, will participate in a 3-month programme starting on 4 September 2017.
What this means for Brownie Points:
The Brownie Points team is getting all the financial, strategy and marketing support it needs (not to mention office space in one of the best co-working office spaces in Cape Town) to be able to accelerate and have more impact in the South African philanthropy industry.
What this means for our do-gooders:
Over the next 4 months, Brownie Points will develop an efficient and cost-effective way to help companies find, manage, track and reward corporate volunteering efforts with verified nonprofit organisations. Studies have shown that employees who volunteer during work hours are 57% more productive and 87% less likely to abandon the company. While this has many implications on the bottom line, corporate volunteering also helps worthy causes gain access to a larger pool of resources and skills from the corporate world. It’s a win-win-win… exactly how we like it.
Blake Dyason, mentor, business partner, and the person responsible for directing Brownie Points towards this programme, says:
“If you have passion and a dream, you can achieve anything…”
“Partnering with Pascale and the passionate Brownie Points team to make a dream come true is an honour. Often these dreams take years to become reality, but with the support of Startupbootcamp and the huge panel of corporates and mentors to help us fast track Brownie Points into a successful and impactful organisation, is exciting.”
The success of this feature will allow us to grow and realise other projects that are in the pipeline, including the launch of our exponential good deeds app and bringing impact success stories to the rest of Africa.
The Brownie Points team appreciates all your support and sharing! If you haven’t yet, sign up and together let’s make the action of selfless giving easy and rewarding.
