I love and still believe in the idea of Well of Change, but we’re sad to announce that we will be closing this chapter of the book. Although, we do promise to comeback and revive after we have recharged our engines (and our bank book$). I would like to thank our team who have been so dedicated to this endeavour.

Our next round, I would do a few things different. We’ll concentrate on aligning participant’s incentive with our own goals. We are a non profit and so many people were ready to support us. We just needed to give them better tools and content to make it easier for them to help us spread the word. Given our technical background, I’m excited for to really leverage “Lean Startup” concepts to discover product-market fit. If you are starting a new endeavour and business check out Eric Ries. I’m a Lean Start Up enthusiast.

The most gratifying part of the past two years have been the people. I’ve been able to meet and work with wickedly awesome people. They have opened up my eyes to fantastic organizations that do great work. I’ve met so many friends that will be with me for life. Professionally, I’ve been able to hone my public speaking skills and reach out to a new audience that I would never have previously engaged with. Business pitch competition, judging panel and even a gig as an ‘entrepreurial role model’ 🙂

Lastly, I’d like to thank my partner in crime, Kevin Tsoi. we’ve been through the ups and downs of a roller coaster together. Wouldn’t have been able to go through this wonderful experience without you.
