Meeting with representatives of Taylor Wessing law firm

In October, we participated in the competition ReStart Slovakia 2013 with our project Building Hope. In ReStart Slovakia,  27 projects with ideas of how to start the social changes using web and mobile applications were submitted. In the final competition, our project Building Hope won a special award, receiving free hours of legal consulting up to the amount of 3,500 €.  This was awarded to ETP Slovakia by the leading international law firm Taylor Wessing, for which we are very grateful to them.

The first joint meeting with representatives of Taylor Wessing was held on Wednesday January 22nd. The meeting was attended by Mrs. Silvia Hlavačková and Mr. Radovan Pala, along with Igor Polakovič from the Center for Philanthropy, whose specialty is fundraising from individual donors. Together we looked at the options and possible stumbling blocks of our project Building Hope. We talked about the steps to be taken to make our new “Make a Donation” web portal clear and easy to use.  We are hoping to raise funds to make living  conditions better for many more families in need.
