There are days where the negativity of others can suck the wind out of me. Either I’m crazy or a genius and my own answer changes quite a bit.
I’ve mentioned that I will be launching the nonprofit on 4/01 but there are plenty of other things to be done. Did you know that Startup city has an official Twitter account? We do. It’s @startupcityap. Follow us! I need to build up my following on Twitter. I’m not sure how much that will help in raising funds but it can’t hurt.
I will be adding a page on my personal website: www.hareeshjayanthi.com for startup city in the next few weeks which will contain all kinds of useful information. Let me know what you would like to see.
My main thought these days, at least when it comes to this project, is how to give people a big enough incentive to donate. What would result in conversions?
My 3 donation levels are:
$150, $250, $1,500
The $1,500 level is only for people participating in land purchase and requires prior approval. So the focus is on how to interest people in donating $150 or $250 once a year.
I don’t have the answer. I will be thinking a lot on my trip to Istanbul.
