The idea behind ONE1
ONE1 is the idea of Duncan Chamberlain, a British entrepreneur and educationalist.Duncan had been inspired and motivated to form ONE1 by the many small businesses, freelancers, self employed, young & aspiring entrepreneurs, social enterprises and micro-businesses that he met during his work as an investor, coach and businessman. The idea behind ONE1 is to support people, communities, organisations, marginalised groups, aspiring business people of any age and young people wanting a business career via an online learning, sharing, mutualistic and connected community.
Duncan’s mission is to help create economic independence for individuals, communities, marginalised groups and provinces – local impacts and socio-economic & environmental sustainability on a global scale. This mission is the driving force behind Duncan’s main company, Bridging to the Future (BTF) (www.bttf.org.uk) and it is BTF who hosts ONE1 and has invested in its creation.
After much discussion and much listening to stakeholders in eleven countries, Duncan’s team in London developed the ONE1 concept as a place to be inspired, connected, supported and to learn and expand markets. Networking and partnership are at the core of ONE1.
