2 days later I had my first day at BitGiving, where I realized, that the startup world is much better and different than I thought. Bubbling with vigor and enthusiasm everyone was motivated “to make amazing things happen”, and the best part was it wasn’t a restricting corporate atmosphere but a milieu of creativity and ideas.
I also understood the power of “people”, how all of us together can achieve the unimaginable. Being a college student, I’ve always had millions of brilliant ideas to walk heaven on earth, but just like any other graduate my ideas too succumbed to my restraints of funds as no investor would pay heed to us. But with the tool of crowdfunding, I could activate my networks and turn my dreams into reality.
This 1 month aptly taught me that “Community is much more than belonging to something; it’s about doing something together that makes belonging matter”
