Our plan is simple.
We aim to purchase an established bank and instantly make BCR a reality.
While the plan is simple we understand that we will need to move the world to achieve our goal. Further we understand that a journey is made up of many steps. Our path to finding a cure for cancer is as follows:
1. Build a community of like minded people who share our vision and passion for the concept
2. Establish an advisory board
3. Raise public support for the concepts
4. Raise the capital required to purchase a bank
Build a Community of Like Minded People. Build the Purpose Generation
We aim to build a community of likeminded people who want to challenge the status quo; people who want to live a life that has purpose, who are driven to make a difference, who want to find a cure for the deadliest disease we have ever faced.
We understand that this is not for everyone. There will be those out there who say that it can’t be done, but for those of you who dare to dream and are prepared to act on your dream, join the Purpose Generation:
Establish an Advisory Board
We seek to establish an advisory board filled with members who are looking to make a difference, who are seeking purpose over profit and who have a diverse range of skills who will add credibility to the concept and who will help us achieve our other strategic goals.
If you are interested in nominating yourself or someone you know for a position on the BCR Advisory Board, please do so via the contact page on our website.
Raise Public Support for the Concept
We aim to take BCR to the masses and raise public support for the concept. Building public support for the concept provides two desired outcomes:
1. Raising public support for BCR will prove that there is a market for BCR. This is important because if we can demonstrate to our investors that there are customers out there willing to sign up, it will make any investment decision for our investors easier. The more future customers we can show them the easier their decision will be.
2. Increasing public support will allow us to attract the attention of our identified investors which will create opportunities for us to meet with them to discuss a pathway to make BCR a reality.
Raise Capital to Purchase an Established Bank
To raise the capital to purchase an established bank we aim to meet with our target investors and explain the theory behind the bank which includes the concepts of a Purpose Entity and Profit Differentiation. We also aim to discuss philanthropic contributions no longer being donations that get used up in the process and the contributions becoming investments which generate profits which are used to fund a cause for years to come.
Our target investors all share similar qualities; they have all been very successful in business and have committed to dedicating the majority of their wealth to philanthropy. Importantly they know that the best way to generate free cashflows to fund philanthropic endeavours is by operating businesses.
Our target investors have both the philanthropic mindset and the financial capacity to purchase an established bank and instantly make BCR a reality. Many of them are signatories to the Giving Pledge.
The Giving Pledge
The Giving Pledge is a commitment by the world’s wealthiest individuals and families to dedicate the majority of their wealth to philanthropy.
So far, 183 high-net-worth households with a net worth of $840 Billion or $840,000,000,000.00 have signed the pledge.
As such, it is clear that the Giving Pledge provides the best opportunity to raise the capital required to purchase an existing bank and instantly make BCR a reality.
Signatories to the Giving Pledge include Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Michael R. Bloomberg, Carl Icahn, Paul Allen and Mark Zuckerberg.
The full list of the signatories is listed below. Please consider how you could help BCR meet with them.
