Our future EMBA Monthly – Class of 2019-21 participant Adam Berg is launching the first crowd funding campaign to partially support their Executive MBA at ESADE.
The crazy idea of using a crowd funding campaign as a financial aid tool came up in an Admissions team internal meeting. The logic behind was that FFF (Friends, Family and Fools) could invest in your talent and through the EMBA help you develop both personally and professionally. To promote it, ESADE committed to add the first 1.000€ to support the candidate.
However, except from Judith Puigbò (the cunning mind), nobody really believed in the idea… Until Adam read it in an old brochure, believed in the project and improved it with a social touch! From all the money collected, 1/3 will be for ESADEs Giving Program, 1/3 will be for cancer research (St. Jude’s Cancer Research Hospital) and 1/3 for Adam’s tuition.
In his own words:
“I want to give another student at ESADE the opportunity to achieve their goals by furthering their education and also support my good friend Mike Anderson, a St. Jude´s hero , while he runs 5k´s to half-marathon races to raise money for children´s cancer research. I plan to give 33.3% of the funds raised to the ESADE scholarship fund, 33.3% to Mike for his races supporting St. Jude´s and use 33.3% of it towards my own tuition.”
So, any quantity that can be divided by 3 is more than welcome!
This is the proof that when you think big, big things happen!
