Pinch, punch, first day of the month! That’s right, it’s the first day of September (where on earth did the summer go…?) and that means just 10 more days to #BackOurValley!

We’ve been blown away by the incredible support from across the world for our hard working entrepreneurs – over 100,000 views in YouTube, coverage on Quartz, LIDC, Huffington Post FR, Mashable FR, La Réclame, Wired.It, Republicca.it to name but a few, support from the likes of Duncan Green of Oxfam, Youtube stars Wankilstudio, and Digital Balance who captured us in a page (plus we’re still reeling from our Jimmy Wales mention…love you Jimmy!). And who could forget DUDE, the genius creators behind our video…

But most important has been the love and generous support from our backers such as Geneviève Materne, who bought a 3D printer despite potentially losing her job, Amal Ketata, who climbed Africa’s highest mountain, and the 1000s who liked and shared our story (too many to mention!). Relive some of the fun on Storify.
After reaching our first goal of $15K we are now well on our way to $25K – if we can make this second goal we will be able to support the creation of five further startups in the Valley, with the potential to transform the lives of even more entrepreneurs, as well as their families and the wider Bulambuli community (who are generally working hard when not distracted by PokemonGO…).
But we can’t make it alone – please do continue to share your support for our campaign and let’s see if we can’t smash our next target before campaign end! Pick up a bargain with our upcoming new perk offer, look out for the much-awaited naming ceremonies for our newly-donated chickens and cows, plus get all the latest in disruptive innovation direct from the Valley on this blog!

Start September as you mean to go on – help Bulambuli Valley on the final stretch to success.
NB. If you ordered an entrepreneur t-shirt or bag, keep an eye out in your inbox for a request for your sizing and/or address so we can make sure your prized Bulambuli souvenir reaches you after the campaign closes. Any queries, don’t hesitate to drop us a line here.
Spread the word!
