Dear OpenGov Melbourne Meetup member,
I'm writing this email to ask for your support of our good friends OurSay in their bid to attend the Unreasonable Institute, a social accelerator program based in Boulder Colorado.
Many of you have attended events with OurSay since its inception and provided invaluable feedback.
Please help Aussie startup OurSay take its next big step by donating $10 to the Unreasonable Marketplace.
For those of you who need reminding, OurSay (http://oursay.org) is an Australian website where the public asks and votes for questions and the top questions are answered in a live video by key politicians and CEOs. OurSay has partnered with ABC’s Q&A, the Sunday Age and is now planning a nation-wide campaign to have OurSay in every marginal electorate before the next Australian federal election.
As the only Australian finalist, OurSay considers the highly competitive Unreasonable Institute program as having the world’s best skills, resources and mentors for social enterprises and therefore the logical next step for the company to grow from a few major cities in Australia to being across the country and beyond. OurSay CEO, Eyal Halamish says, “Unreasonable is a unique opportunity for us to test our idea in the United States and see how we can get OurSay happening in every major city in the world.”
To get into the Unreasonable Institute, OurSay needs to prove it has thousands of people who believe in its vision and are willing to vote for the company by donating. The first 25 finalists to raise $10,000 as their entrance fee to the program get in.
Support OurSay right now by donating generously at https://marketplace.unreasonableinstitute.org/project/oursay/ to the OurSay project.
