Nonprofits are everywhere, even in the media! HIP2B2 is a media initiative that is dedicated to developing and inspiring youth.

One of the ways HIP2B2 delivers on its mission is focusing on developing entrepreneurial, analytical thinking, and problem solving skills amongst youth. The weekly radio program Business DIY delivers inspiration for young entrepreneurs and guides them through the journey of starting and growing a new business. The show introduces the audience to many different industries and facets of the business environment and I was honored to be offered the opportunity to chat about the nonprofit world and dispel some of the myths around nonprofit fundraising.

The hosts were Conrad de Vries and Anton de Beer. Conrad has been playing, experimenting, and working with recording equipment since he was 9 years old. He’s passionate about creative media technology, education and youth mentoring, and he always had a dream to create an independent broadcast channel that would be light hearted, entertaining yet informative and based on good moral values. He found a terrific match with HIP2B2 Radio.

Anton is a visionary social entrepreneur with broad experience in all aspects of financial and executive management. As a former teacher and business banker, he’s dedicated to helping others reach their goals through start up companies, consulting with management, and working with non-profit organizations. When he is not in the studio with Business DIY, he can be found running TeleCare Solutions and acting as a trustee for the eHealth Foundation.
