From Entrepreneur, to Homelessness, to Entrepreneur Again

Simon had fallen into poverty and found himself homeless in Silicon Valley without any support. It’s been two years now and he is turning things around.

Six months ago he launched a startup without a cent in his pocket. Recently his new startup moved in it’s own office and has grown to a team of 12 people. Their mission: to clean up the cleaning industry. That means offering real living wages and offering a safe working environment.

Please do consider joining the British Benevolent Society and giving a small loan to Simon via Kiva Zip – he is trying to raise $10,000 by the end of the month. For every donation given Reid Hoffmann is graciously matching each individual donation up to $100 per donation. Let’s help Simon get going!

Another relief case for the British Benevolent Society, supporting our community in need.
