Bad Idea Honours List
This was one of the projects that Paisley.org.uk supported to get crowd funded alongside other local business, I am a Captain of the Revolution but two other companies I am associated with have helped beyond means too, please take not only the time to read this press release but what u18.me.uk is all about and why they exist. You can find out more from all the links below but just to say www.paisley.org.uk helped too..
This is from Anthony the project’s inspirational oner and founder:
My apologies for not having this prepared earlier, i was a little distracted with the Bad Idea workshops which began just 96 hours after the crowd-fund campaign closed!
I am delighted to tell you that the pilot workshops were a huge success, but what better way to show you just how successful they were than by inviting you to view all 20 of our budding young entrepreneurs in action:
None of this would have been possible without your generous support and for this i simply cannot put into words my gratitude!
Please follow this link: http://www.u18.me.uk/bad-idea-honours-list/ to the ‘Honours List’ page where you will be immortalised forever as an original supporter of the Bad Idea Youth Enterprise Competition.
Please check the details and let me know of any changes, alterations, links and so on that you want included/removed. I will endeavour to complete this page in the next day or two. I would also like to include a picture of you, your organisation, business or whatever else you wish so please send these to me before i make it public – i still have acknowledgements to include for some people so please dont be annoyed if you’re not listed yet!
I have tons of video content being edited from the workshops and there are still ‘elevator pitches’ being added to the kids’ campaign pages as i write. I will follow-up with the promotional video soon, and would hope you could help share amongst your networks and contacts in the media and press.
If you would like to offer any quotes, blogs, be available for video interviews and so on then please get in touch – the more noise we make the better!
This is just the beginning for Bad Idea, and the next stage of this mission is to scale the project nationally. I cannot do this myself and am calling on you to support in any way you can. The next step is securing a minimum £87,000 for the organisation to put in place our functional digital resource, infrastructure and resources. This project also requires a team of exec and non-execs who can make this the global Revolution it has the potential to be. Access to contacts, networks, individuals and organisations will be key too, so lets get talking, sharing and unite in the fight against the Tyranny of the Status Quo!
Revolutionists, I salute you!
Vive la Revolution!
Oh, and get donating to the kids who are raising their funds! :-)
