Since claiming the prize a little over two months ago Raise5, the fundraising platform that gives people a creative way to raise money for their favourite charities, has grown from strength to strength.
“At our company, we’ve been fortunate enough to receive the support of Virgin Group founder Richard Branson. His support has done more for us in a few short days than we could have done in months,” explained Shayan Nahrvar of Raise5 to The Globe and Mail.
“Our partnership with Virgin Unite has helped bolster our credibility and public presence. We never expected someone of such high calibre to become a supporter at this early stage, but we’ve always valued partnerships, and it’s certainly paid dividends.”
As well as praising the input of Virgin Unite and Branson, Nahrvar was keen to point out Raise5’s eagerness to stick with the ‘Screw Business as Usual’ philosophy that has seen them come so far.
“Even brilliant entrepreneurs can only possess so many fields of expertise and, no matter how exceptionally talented they may be, there will always be those who are more knowledgeable in certain respects.”
“So while the drive for independence and self-sufficiency is at the root of the entrepreneurial spirit, it is only with the help and support of good partners that the business may grow and thrive.”
