What happens when the East meets the West? There is an exchange of talent and opportunities. Interestingly, there is an emerging trend among entrepreneurs to create a bridge between the East and the West and ensure a win-win trade scenario. IceFire is one of them. Headed by Richard Freer, this company brings the East and the West together for fair trade.
The meeting of global cultures
When global cultures meet it can throw open a flood of opportunities. However, the area of concern is whether the talent from underrepresented countries are paid fairly for their services. For example, a company in the US or Europe may take the services of a graphic designer or a digital marketing team. Now, does the company pay this fresh talent fairly?
It is here that initiatives such as IceFire Initiative come to the scene to make the entire thing profitable for both parties. The talent must be paid fairly for its services. The company taking the service must grow and make profit too.
It’s an amazing effort in creating “the best of both worlds.” It ensures smooth operation of the business and the kickstart of a career for the talented person.
And it doesn’t just end here
IceFire Initiative is also into providing scholarships and this, undoubtedly, is a laudable initiative by this company.
Everybody has talent, but not everybody has the resources to receive higher education and hone their talent.
IceFire has decided to support four students each year in their studies. They provide scholarships to deserving students and also give them an opportunity to work in IceFire after they complete their studies. This gives freshers a learning experience in the professional world. It lays the foundation of their career, something many students fresh out of college find it hard to do.
In this regard, IceFire is collaborating with a renowned Carmichael College in Rangpur, Bangladesh. This reputed college is showing interest in helping deserving students build their career paths.
IceFire has already provided scholarship to one student, which means they have put their plan into the action mode. Now, they are ready to do the same for the coming years.
Helping businesses grow wings
IceFire Initiative is also for new businesses. Sometimes, a little idea has a potential to turn into a roaring business, but only when it gets the right conditions. Mostly, these conditions are defined by finances and opportunities. IceFire helps such ideas take wings and fly high.
The company sponsors new businesses, helps them launch online, provide hosting, marketing advice, promotion, and such basic things that propel a business to newer heights.
A business idea can be born anywhere, anytime. If you are a proud owner of such an idea, IceFire can be of help to you, and things may take an exciting turn for you.
