We all know that time is money and for the local Vancouver startup Time Auction, the value they offer in exchange for your time is priceless. They have recently launched a program with UBC’s Sauder School of Business that will connect you with local business leaders, all you have to do is offer to volunteer your time in your community.
Time Auction’s latest initiative is to have locals bid on the opportunity to hang out with a Vancouver business leader, offering up a certain number of volunteer hours in exchange for the reward.
Give back to your community by volunteering at a charity, not-for-profit, school club, or personal initiative.
Each volunteer hour completed in the last 60 days can be traded for a chance to win an auction that you like.
If your entry is drawn and your hours are verified by Time Auction, you win your reward.
Exclusive to UBC’s Sauder School of Business, you can bid on the chance to tour Rogers Arena with Kirk McLean, grab lunch in Whistler with Whistler Blackcomb’s CEO, watch a Whitecaps match with COO Rachel Lewis, tour EA Studios with an SVP, cook a meal with Chef David Hawksworth, meet the Top 30 Under 30 Founder of Appnovation, do a tour and lunch at the Vancouver Sun with its Editor-in-Chief, watch a Canucks game with its COO, and tour a Polygon Homes property with its CEO.

A lunch meeting with me also up for bids, with your contribution of a minimum of 5 volunteer hours logged. I’ll meet you in Downtown Vancouver for a lunch where we can talk about entrepreneurship, social media strategies, website development and design, blogging, becoming a published author, or some of my favourite topics like local history. You have until February, 2015 to complete some volunteer hours, place your bid, and enter to win this lunch with me. Best of luck!
