Platform Lets Leaders Give Away Their Time Via Lottery
A scheduling service called Time4Good helps sought-after people make time for those seeking their council
Scheduling to meet friends is difficult enough in today’s fast-paced world. Trying to meet with a prominent business leader is even harder, and many times fairly impossible. Time4Good is a social business that is trying to make these high-stakes meetings possible, if you are lucky. Business leaders can sign up for this platform and people can enter into a lottery to try to catch some face time with them. Leaders need to be approved and registered by this platform to kick off the process.
To enter into a lottery, anyone can purchase a ticket. 90 percent of the ticket’s proceeds then go to charity. The participating higher-ups have a say on which charities benefit from lottery ticket sales. After a winner is randomly selected, a meeting can easily be arranged between the two.
Although a simple concept, time can be a scarce resource (especially for the most successful and entreprenuerial) and this is one way to deal with its scarcity. At the end of the day, Time4Good’s purpose is to connect people together so better business and solutions are created as a result.
