At StartSomeGood, we’ve always prided ourselves on being truly international, and it’s still one of the strengths that sets us apart from other platforms in the social enterprise space. This week we’re humbled and delighted to announce success in our 20th country, with PropRoots of China powering past their tipping point and starting one huge chunk of good for the kids of the Jingpo minority.
Here’s what our founders, Tom and Alex had to say about clinching the 20 countries milestone:
Cofounder Alex Budak
Our goal is to create a world where anyone, anywhere can create a new future for their community. Changemakers aren’t limited by borders and neither are we. We’re proud to support innovators from around the world and look forward to the day we’re celebrating our 196th country being represented.
Cofounder Tom Dawkins
“We live in an increasingly interconnected world, but many of the fundraising platforms which focus on social benefit are exclusive to a particular country. We know that great social entrepreneurs with inspiring ideas to improve their communities exist everywhere, and having funded projects in 20 countries is an exciting affirmation of that belief. It’s only the beginning though. Our goal is to create the best fundraising website to empower social entrepreneurs in every country on earth to create the future their community needs.”
StartSomeGood success stories are now changing the world from Australia, Cambodia, Canada, China, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Nepal, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Russia, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, the UK, and the US.
