Social Impact
What is the social impact you have had to date and how you measure it?

Making more people run is having an impact on the health of these people. As for today, we are 7 people running, but our goal for the end of this month is 30 people improving their health with our project.

On the other side of the business plan we have the NGO's which creates social impact for the causes they are funding. As for today, we have not fundraised any money, but our goal for this month, is to submit 3000 Dkr. to Kræftens Bekæmplese, and we are THIS close as to getting the companies in on it!

What barriers might hinder the success of your business? How do you plan to overcome them?

The greatest barrier is to get the companies to buy in on this idea. They are the ones that have the money, but they are also careful in using them. To overcome this, we have an ancle of sustainable, responsible outdoor media space taht the runners provide to the company to spreed the word of the companies good doing.

What aspects of your stay in Uganda as part of the competition do you think you will find most challenging and rewarding?

I have never been to Africa, and I have heard a lot of assumptions about how NGO's fail to help the local societies down there. I am hoping to get rid of those prejudices.
