REFLECTIVE BLOGEntrepreneurs are known for taking risks in order to earn profit but at the same time,some of them, are trying to do something for society by using different ways (Bennett-Levy andLee, 2014). Recently, I worked on a project where an entrepreneurial venture, named Made inMarylebone, gave money and other essential facilities to homeless women. They are doing thiswork from a short period of time. This organisation is known for making and selling differentkind of food items and they used the raised amount in support those women who do not havetheir own home (Canagarajah, 2013). My team had 5 members and our main task is to raise moremoney for this entrepreneurial venture by creating a crowdfunding page.

One can say that if a work is done with conviction than gaining desiredresult is not difficult. The issue if convincing people to use internet and donate money startedresolving gradually money of donators got increased. Trust is most important part of anyrelation. When faith of supporters enhanced then we saw a sharp increment in the amount ofdonation.
