AMA Patrick Stadler, Director of Communications, Charity Entrepreneurship: Starting Charities from Scratch

The EAG 2020 team has invited Charity Entrepreneurship (CE) to conduct an AMA on the sidelines of this year’s virtual conference. CE helps start high-impact charities through extensive research and a two-month incubation program.

Hi EAG, Patrick here. I joined CE in the summer of 2019 as a Charity Mentor and have since become more involved, most recently as a Director of Communications. Besides communications, I contribute to developing the curriculum and content of the upcoming incubation program.

I look forward to your questions about CE, our current application window for the 2020 incubation program and on starting high-impact charities from scratch (as our exciting charities incubated last year).

Please post your questions by midnight GMT on Tuesday, 31 March 2020. I will then get back with written responses on the EA Forum by the end of the week. Thanks for your questions. :-)

I also hope you consider applying for our 2020 program by 15 April here (if needed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the program will be conducted online).
