At some point in any enterprise, the preliminary work is done and you’re open for business. The non-profit I’ve started, PBDD (Partners Bridging the Digital Divide) has reached that point.
The paperwork is completed with respect to the state of Illinois and the federal government as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
We have reached out to agencies in the industry involved in refurbishing and have an initial set of partner agencies across the United States.
We have identified a community with which to initiate a pilot project and preliminary talks are underway.
It’s a good start, though we have much more to do. But we’re up and running, and the rest is execution.
I look forward to the next steps.
