I’ve had a long standing belief in doing at least 1 philanthropic thing a year, trying to give back a multiple of what I’ve been given, and supporting the community.
This year, I get to do that in spades. I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been invited and have accepted a board role at the Entrepreneur’s Foundation of Colorado.
The premise behind EFCO is simple – donate 1% of your startup’s equity to EFCO. If your company is ultimately successful, that 1% can go to support the charity of your choice. It’s a great way to make a commitment of support to the very community in which you live and work. There’s no cash component today – only if you’re successful tomorrow. And it instills a culture of giving within your company. The only way we’re going to make our communities better is by standing up and doing something about it, not by waiting for handouts or for things to improve.
If you have questions about EFCO or are interested in joining these awesome startups in contributing, reach out. I’ll help you get set up.
