Transcript of Prezi CSR
Change - making
During our first year we started a renovation project tradition instead of throwing a holiday party (we just partied later).
In 2009, Prezi was the first company to ever participate in the Budapest pride festival. We were escorted by guards.
Our culture, and the stories we tell, matter. Either positive or negative, many of these stories become self-fulfilling prophecies. Optimism is not enough to create a positive change, but it is a requirement.
This conversation made my move to Hungary meaningful, it gave an extra sense of purpose. We weren't just going to build a useful product- we were going to help hopeful entrepreneurs in Hungary -and maybe even greater Europe- through leading by example and positively impacting the culture.
I have a vivid memory of four years ago when my uncle picked me up from the Budapest airport. It was the day I met my future Prezi co-founders, but of the opinions of my uncle shared on our drive into the city made an equally deep impression.
“There’s no work, unless you want to work for a faceless multinational and young people don’t have any cause for hope. Nothing good will ever come out of this country.”
Our goal is to prove that people can change the world in two days if we apply ourselves. Hungarian companies, for example, could all be doing a yearly two day renovation project to help Roma villages.
We've kept this tradition as we've grown from 8 people to 120 Prezilians.
The experience is shaping us as much as the communities we work with. We connect with new people learn about ourselves and others.
We want Prezi to be part of initiating openness and acceptance in Hungary so that, one day, there won't be a need for guards at this parade.
We're mentors of Roma children who want to study at a University. Oftentimes, we get way more back than we give.
Guatemala stove project
Based on our estimated CO2 emissions, we determined a way to help offset our yearly carbon footprint.
Yes, we travel a lot...
At the same time as it saves lives: air pollution from indoor cooking fires kills more people than any other form ( including the air pollution from car exhaust, emissions from coal fired power plants, etc.).
Building stoves has the benefit that less wood is required to heat your food
The foundation for everything here is an appreciated product and a great team - but this story is about how we engage with our surroundings.
BridgeBudapest provides a fellowship program to Hungarian students in order to give them access to globally successful and rapidly scaling companies. Companies where these students can dream big and get convinced of their ability to succeed.
We brought together Hungary's most successful entrepreneurs from Ustream, Logmein and Prezi to start spreading stories that show how a good idea, hard work and a bit of luck can make anything possible.
If you're like us, then not every topic is easy to talk about directly with your parents, yet the decisions we make can the trajectories for a liftime.
Seeing somebody spreading their wings taking off for their first flight rocks!
