Get our newsletter and help us create a new vocabulary to shape the way we think. We will send you a survey form asking for suggestions on what to call the target demographic, market, the entrepreneurs we work with, etc. We have BRICS, barefoot entrepreneurs, the bottom 20%, etc., we need words so we know who we're talking about.
In addition to the survey form, we'll send you a fabulous e-book documenting the project with photographs, data, analysis, and profiles of the barefoot entrepreneurs that have taken part in our research.
You could be an "Innnovation Sponsor", "Rainmaker", "Development Entrepreneur" or whatever, as chosen by our supporters through the vocabulary survey. (See the £1 pledge above) We'll also list you on on our wall of fame. Send us a photo, a few lines about yourself, and link to your website so your page-rank can improve along with your karma. And, naturally, you get the full e-book as well.
The first 50 people pledging £50 or more, during the first 50 hours of this campaign, get a direct line to the project founders until the campaign ends. Use it to ask for extra benefits, offer advice or help, or ask questions directly to us. You will also get all the other rewards offered to the normal £50 backers.
