Q. How did you first hear about the Secret Projects Community Benefit Society?
I stumbled upon the Secret Projects website before the CBO was created. I actually found out about Secret Projects while I was in the early stages of setting up my own start-up, Shakti.ism, which has a similar ethos to empower women in India (and beyond). I connected with Fritha and we kept in touch - she was incredibly helpful in answering all my start-up questions. I initially subscribed to the newsletter to keep up with Secret Projects and their impact, updates, etc., and that's how I learnt about the company's intention to crowdfund and change to a Community Benefit Society (CBS).
Q. What led you to decide to purchase shares?
I initially purchased shares as Christmas gifts for close family members, because who wouldn't love to get shares of a company that has such a wonderful and impactful mission? Then shortly after, I decided to purchase a few for myself because I also wanted to be a part of the CBS. 🙂
