Start up businesses are always struggling. Money is a major issue, but also resources, setting up office and getting recognised
Venables Bell & Partners celebrated their 10-year anniversary by renting out office space in their building for $10 for the year. They placed an ad on Craigslist, and then interviewed everyone that applied for the job space. Applicants had to pitch about their business, what they do, why they think they deserved the space and what they were going to do with the opportunity.
In the end, the company narrowed it down to three finalists. What their business was and who won is for you to investigate, in this imaginative example of Corporate Social Responsibility.
