How We Make Money In Our Idle Time--for Kids

Technical founders ask questions on sales and marketing

Domain experts answer the questions and amass karma (points)—the most useful answers get upvoted

We make money by selling courses and referring consulting gigs. We then use 10% of the profits to award scholarships

Capital & Growth is a  free Q&A site for startups to get answers on sales and marketing. We are the ‘Stackoverflow for sales and marketing for startups’.

Inspired by the B corp model, we use 10% of our profits to award scholarships to ‘high potential’ kids at risk of dropping out of school due to lack of school fees.

Initial Class of Capital & Growth Scholars

Each scholar received $150 which is enough to cover two years of school fees or one year of school fees, uniform and supplies.

The kids are ‘high potential kids’ from the Damasca Educational Center in Mukuru Kwa Njenga slums, Nairobi, Kenya.

The scholarships were awarded in the names of the C&G contributors below who have amassed the most karma points.

Chris Khaemba (in suit at the top) selected the kids. He is a world renowned educationist, WEC Davos Fellow and the founding Dean of the African Leadership Academy. He also advised Madonna on her Malawi Girls School project.
