I'm going to be leaving 80,000 Hours and joining Charity Entrepreneurship's incubator programme this summer!
The summer 2023 incubator round is focused on biosecurity and scalable global health charities and I'm really excited to see what's the best fit for me and hopefully launch a new charity. The ideas that the research team have written up look really exciting and I'm trepidatious about the challenge of being a founder but psyched for getting started. Watch this space! <3
I've been at 80,000 Hours for the last 3 years. I'm very proud of the 800+ advising calls I did and feel very privileged I got to talk to so many people and try and help them along their careers!
I've learned so much during my time at 80k. And the team at 80k has been wonderful to work with - so thoughtful, committed to working out what is the right thing to do, kind, and fun - I'll for sure be sad to leave them.
There are a few main reasons why I'm leaving now:
So overall it seems like it was good to move on to something new and it took me a little while to find something I was as excited about as CE's incubator programme!
I'll be at EAG London this weekend! And will hopefully you'll hear more from me later this year about the new thing I'm working on - so keep an eye out as no doubt I'll be fundraising and/or hiring at some point! :)
I've said it privately, but I say publicly also:
I am really happy that you are sticking to your principles and what you think is right and enjoyable. I can't wait to see if you found an organisation, what it's like and thank you so much for all the work you've done.
Best of luck with your new gig; excited to hear about it! Also, I really appreciate the honesty and specificity in this post.
I love this!
Congrats for being accepted into the incubator program! Hope it goes well for you!
So excited for you!
