A Community Referral Programme at a large scale
In the UK there are lots of opportunities which bring communities and businesses together. I am myself a strong believer in the power of economy to change lives at a large scale.
There are many businesses and entrepreneurs who give as much as they can give back to the community and inspire people. Why not giving the opportunity to more people and more businesses to work together and inspire more?
That is how I came with the idea of Underdog Stars: a community referral programme that will operate at a large scale - UK wide - and give the opportunity to support projects everywhere in the country.
Underdog Stars is named after the powerful song of Alicia Keys "Underdog" and Stars because we all shine from within!
How does it work ?
Underdog Stars will be a facilitator and a point of contact for businesses and communities.
- Point of contact for businesses and communities
- Project Management support: Underdog Stars will help in the set up of projects
Example: As a fintech start-up, you may need app testers and you were aware of a community center that needs to have more computers. You may be able to help each other.
What types of businesses/supporters could expect to be on board?
The list of businesses that could participate is not exhaustive and there are countless people who inspire through their businesses. The businesses could be at early stage - for example app development - and get maybe their first clients!
It could be women-led organizations/companies or companies which hired women in management positions. We all know that women are key to communities empowerment and development!
Artists are also welcome as well...Countless possibilities !!!
Does Underdog Stars will ask for fees? If there is an issue how does it work?
Yes and I need to be transparent on this point for you need to know more about how it works to support the project
Businesses will pay a small fee of not more than £20/project. The more you are supporting project the less you pay (£15 on the second project, £10 on the third project and £5 from the from the 4th project). If for any reason the project does not work as planned, 50% of the fee are paid straight away and no need to pay fees for the next project. For example, you paid £20 then you have £10 back straight away and you don't need to pay £15 for the second project. So you save £25 ( £10 + £15). Hope it makes sense :)
What's in it for you?
To launch Underdog Stars organization , two part-time project managers are needed. They will both do project management but one project manager will have a special focus on communities and the other one on business partnerships. There will be a test phase of 3 to 6 months to determine how it goes.
You will participate in communities empowerment at a large scale and a great human adventure. You will also have the opportunity to strengthen UK economy. Many Thanks for your help!!!
