This past Saturday’s charity fundraiser for Donor’s Choose was a huge success. For those who didn’t read about it in the news: for one day only you were able to book time through Exec with one of five startup founders: Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman of Reddit, Tikhon Bernstam from Parse, Matt Brezina from Sincerely, Michael Seibel from Socialcam and our very own Justin Kan. Outside of raising money for classrooms around the nation, our goal was to give access to entrepreneurs who otherwise might not be able to reach the founders of some of Silicon Valley’s fastest growing companies.
We raised over $3,000 and fielded over 50 calls over the course of the day. Here are some photos we took from Exec HQ:
The bathroom was an improvised conference room.
Tikhon critiquing someone’s web product.
Steve laying down some serious knowledge.
Comment below if you have suggestions for which Donor’s Choose projects you’d like to see us fund!
