International support of entrepreneurs has been a big part of what we do at Valhalla and we have been very fortunate to work in 15 countries last year. This all started for us in Puerto Rico. Through the Guayacan Accelerator program we have met 60 companies doing between $2m and $90m in business employing thousands of Puerto Ricans, and right now in Canada we can make a huge difference to their future.
We are accepting donations to pay the travel, food, and lodging for up to 70 employees of these companies to come and work in Calgary for a number of months. We are hoping you will want to stand beside us and the incredible group at Aspen Properties who have donated a floor in the Edison Building in Calgary for this cause. Our goal is to raise $50,000, $30,000 of that on this site
You can have a hand in preserving the startup ecosystem in an emerging economy.
At this time we cant commit that this will be deductible. But we are sending this now so we can get going on the 15 employees from 4 companies that will come starting the week of Oct 1.
Be part of something awesome! Remember our own flood and how amazing it was to feel the community come together. I hope you see this as your opportunity to pay it forward to another community in need.
