Join us in conversation with Prashan Paramanathan, Founder and CEO at http://chuffed.org/ - a crowdfunding platform that helps people raise funds for social cause projects. It’s already raised more than $65M for over 13,000 orgs. Chuffed started its life as a charity, then converted structure into a Public Benefit Company - raising a seed equity round of $1.1M led by Blackbird Ventures. It was the first time that any Australian tech VC had invested in a social enterprise. Now, since growing to be the largest social cause crowdfunding platform in Australia, http://chuffed.org/ has set its sights internationally and is expanding to the UK and US. Join us to learn about Prashan's journey to http://chuffed.org/ and the insight he has gathered into the world of social enterprise, including the discovery of deep societal injustices. Whether you're a current or emerging founder trying to make your dent in the universe, or an investor, social change champion, diversity advocate or other curious human looking to learn from a leading voice in the social enterprise sphere; this conversation is for you. ____ Facilitated by Sarah Gun.
