YouTubers FunForLouis And Dave Erasmus Embark On Global Journey To Fund Social Entrepreneurs

YouTubers Louis Cole and Dave Erasmus are a comical, charming, and adventurous duo. Their friendship is evident through their travels: snowboarding in Canada, salsa dancing in Cuba, and jazz sessions in New York.

Yet, recently, I met them in Delhi embarking on something bigger: a 30-day tour around the world called The Solvey Project.  The aim is to find social entrepreneurs who could use a nudge: financially and emotionally.  The duo will fund 7 ideas (or individuals) with a minimum of $1,000 a piece at the end of this whirlwind tour.

It’s a pitch competition unlike others — not centered around massive funds, but learning, listening, and seeing where their small doses of capital can spark a change, says Erasmus.

Cole, who is famous for his Youtube channel, FunforLouis, which has nearly 2 million subscribers, sees Solvey as a way to start a “revolution.”
