In a special 2015 #DENStartupWeek edition of this post, we are pleased to share the third video in our #GiveFirst series focused on an organization that has facilitated more than $3,000,000 in donations to causes that our community cares about, the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado. We proudly call ourselves members of EFCO, and hope you will consider becoming one too.
A core tenet of the #GiveFirst theory is that the startup community grows exponentially faster if community members are selfless in their approach to normal commerce. The theory posits that you give of yourself, your time, and your expertise, with NO expectation of anything in return – help others and the rest will fall into place.
Technical Integrity has proudly built this Give First philosophy into our DNA as an organization, and we thought it was an important message to share with other startup communities and entrepreneurial ecosystems that have not yet adopted this powerful and effective idea.
This summer, we sat down with four amazing thought leaders to discuss their thoughts on what Give First means to them, what their favorite Give First success stories are, and how both individual communities and entrepreneurs can benefit from this philosophy.
