We like to barrack for our sporting teams. We follow the teams through the season. As they get closer to the Grand Finals / Playoffs / Superbowl / pick your sport, we feel invested in their success or failure.

The same goes for startups, particularly social enterprise startups. Most people want to help others, but it can be a challenge to know where to start.

When you find a team that is all-in, demonstrates commitment and capability,  and is solving a real need, it is important to get behind them at the early stages and help them give it a go.

This is why I am supporting the Powerwells team, who are both helping reduce ewaste and bringing light and power to remote regions. After an intense Startup Weekend, the team boarded a plane to Papua New Guinea to get customer validation and test supply chains and distribution channels. They returned with a proven model and growing support for stage 2.

Most of us have been in the stands, yelling for our side to get the touchdown, score the try, or hit the homerun. Can you imagine if that goal also brought light and power to hundreds?

Powerwells is running an all or nothing crowdfunding campaign that has 10 days left. For the price of one month’s cable TV subscription or a footy game ticket, you can help bring our team that much closer to their next touchdown.
