"Unicorns" vs. "Zebras" on Social Impact

10-08-2019 11:26 AM CET | Energy & Environment

Press release from: ShareYourself

/ PR Agency: N/A
The unicorns, it seems, are dying out -- fast. As massive tech companies like Uber and WeWork go down in flames, the tech industry is starting to realize that the 10x model -- in which investors put their money into companies that have a low chance to succeed, in the off chance that one ends up succeeding -- might have been faulty.

But just because that investment model is looking like more risk than a reward, doesn’t mean investors are going to stop investing. Instead, we think the model is starting to shift towards companies that have a real-life impact. It’s time to stop chasing unicorns -- and start funding zebras.

“Zebras,” unlike unicorns, are real. They’re also profitable and make a social impact. And today, more than ever, companies are expected to be socially impactful.

At ShareYourself, we’ve created a place for zebras -- aka socially impactful startups -- to set themselves up for success.

Here’s what we offer to this new brand of world-changing entrepreneurs:

ShareYourself connects do-gooders
Have a great idea that will change your community? Or maybe even the whole world? ShareYourself connects the people who have ideas for socially impactful businesses (though not all of the projects on ShareYourself are business ventures) with people who want to help them make it a success.

ShareYourself helps with funding
ShareYourself members have access to financial institutions and businesses that provide grants and investments. We want to streamline the funding process for both parties. For some projects, this first grant could be the stepping stone to get more funding in the future.

ShareYourself provides project management
We created an easy-to-use project management system that even first time entrepreneurs can use. It’s also open by default. This means that investors can look through all of the tasks and milestones on any project to decide if they want to reach out and invest.

ShareYourself wants to help the zebras grow, so that investors can keep doing what they do best. Interested in learning more? Let’s chat.

ShareYourself is an online space that helps do-gooders learn, practice, and operate like entrepreneurs, to make it easier to move their ideas to success.

Plenty of people have amazing ideas, but so few of us have all the skills and resources to turn them into something real. ShareYourself (SYS) is an online platform and worldwide community that brings together people who are ready to make a difference, but aren't sure where to start.

SYS is unlike any other do-good platform. We actually help you create new projects, or join up with an existing project, by focusing on sharing valuable skills and passions. Project creators provide the idea and motivation, and SYS will provide everything you need - access to a Tribe of like-minded people and their skills, fundraising strategies, social media integration, coordination, a network of potential funders, advice from experts, and more - to go from idea, to successful, world-changing project.
