No one forgets that person, do they?
They saw something in you, when perhaps no one else did.
And oh boy, were you grateful to them.
That first rung on the ladder may be equally spaced with all the others, but it doesnâ€™t feel that way when you are starting out.
So now maybe you are in a position to give someone his or her lucky break.
The â€˜Giving Chairâ€™ programme is way for you and your company to do that.
Quite simply, you buy a ticket for The Do Lectures Start-Up Event (April 25-28th) and we give that ticket to a young remarkable entrepreneurial minded person.
At the Do Start-Up they will have 3 days of listening to 20 amazing speakers talking about starting a business. They will have access to 30 Skype video mentors. And bea part of 10 workshops at the event. And they will be a part of team that starts a company in the 3 days they are there. There is no event like it, for sure. And there is no experience like it either.Â The Guardian voted it in the top ten ideas festivals in the world along with Ted and Burning Man.
As part of the â€˜Giving Chairâ€™ Programme we will get an artist to paint the chair with your name or company name on the back of the chair, so everyone knows that you paid for that young person to be at the event.
After the event is finished, the chair will go into the auction to raise money for The Do Lectures.
Then after the event the student will come to your business and do a talk about what they learned at The Do Lectures. So your people get to learn what they have learnt too. They will
show you the film that they made of their time there too.
But more than anything else, you can help someone on that first rung of a ladder.
Just as someone did for you.
