Following the launch of our new Accumulator Challenge, I am pleased to announce that Robert Frith (RGS 1966-73) author of ‘Drive like a Real Entrepreneur’, has come on board as principal sponsor, backing each team with a £50 investment. Plus each team will receive a copy of Roberts’s new book when they sign up.
This April, we’re looking for 10 teams to go head-to-head with 15 days and a £50 investment to beg, steal (not literally please!) and borrow your way to making the most amount of profit, in our inaugural Accumulator Challenge, to raise funds for the RGS Foundation’s Changing Lives campaign.
Each team will be given £50 courtesy of our sponsor, Robert Frith (RGS 1966-73) author of ‘Drive like a Real Entrepreneur’, and what you do with it, is up to you. You can fundraise, have an auction, invest it, organise an event or buy and sell products. The sky is the limit, providing what’s done is safe, ethical and legal. Whatever your background or experience we challenge your team to raise as much as you can from just £50 to become the Accumulator Champions and lift the winners trophy!
What counts towards your final total?
Donations and money raised in the form of cash, cheques, shares, online donations including gift aid, physical gifts (calculating their RRP) and gifts in kind donated to the RGS Foundation. The challenge will start at 9am Tuesday 19 April 2016 finish at 9pm Wednesday 4 May 2016. To help you along your way, we will provide each team with a fundraising pack as well as help and support during the 15 days, not to mention a free copy of the book ‘Drive like a Real Entrepreneur’ for each team.
