Gret Glyer is the founder of DonorSee, an organization that allows you to raise money for charitable causes that are meaningful to you from anywhere in the world. Although we chat about DonorSee later in the episode, the focus is on how travel inspired Gret to change his life + create his business.
After graduating college, Gret got a soul sucking job at Enterprise Rent-a-Car and found himself seeking something more. He found a job as a math teacher in Malawi, and after spending a year teaching, he knew that we wanted to do something even more. Gret transitioned into poverty alleviation and his first project was crowdfunding $800 to build a house for a local woman in Malawi. He created a company called HOWMs, which crowdfunded money to build multiple people homes in Malawi. From there, Gret continued to work in social entrepreneurship crowdfunding mosquito nets, a girls school, and many other projects. Then, DonorSee was born.
On this episode, Gret shares what inspired him to travel to Malawi, what life in Malawi was like + how his experiences in Malawi changed the course of his life and ultimately how it inspired him to create DonorSee.
