A lively discussion about why it makes dollars and sense to give back to the community as founders, startups, and scaleups. Pledge 1% started in Colorado as EFCO (Entrepreneurs foundation of Colorado) and has helped facilitate $10M+ from local companies, founders, and funders back to the community we all live in and love. Whether you are an early stage company/founder or scaling, it’s never too late to give back and a wide range of ways to do so via: employee engagement like volunteering, giving away product or discounts to impact organizations, or giving money via profits, company or founder equity!
