Disruptive Thinkers is a grassroots, non-profit organization. We try and keep costs at a minimum while still providing valuable experiences for our members. There is no money needed to join, as we want to reach as wide of an audience as possible. Courtesy of supporters like Michael Kenny of Co-Merge, we are able to host our events free of charge.
However, some costs still occur, mostly on the web-development side. If you find Disruptive Thinkers to be of value, please consider donating to support our efforts in bringing innovation to our respective worlds.
Finally, simply put, having skin in the game provides a psychological motivator to see an organizations succeed and grow.
Website development: $3500
Yearly Web Hosting Fees: $150
Monthly SD Seminar Costs: $75 (Drinks)
Any contribution helps. And please contribute to our discussion community as well – ideas are the well spring of this venture.
