What is GiGRUSH?

GiGRUSH is a foundation and non-profit organization, it has been founded to offer to all those interested in their own personal growth and development to participate. Regardless of background or financial means. Only motivation and dedication are needed. Moreover, GiGRUSH will also offer individuals the unique opportunity to help reshape the world by working on individual GiGRUSH ventures (GiGS) together with GiGGERS from around the globe.

GiGRUSH is all about self-development, learning by doing and achieving personal growth.
GiGRUSH (The GiGRUSH Community/Movement) is a global movement of people who want to achieve their dreams and goals. The GiGRUSH Movement wants to realize these dreams by building an ‘International GiG Ecosystem’. This ecosystem makes it possible for it’s members to realize substantial personal growth by offering self-learning resources and more importantly, by offering the possibility to form and forge ‘teams’ (creating a ‘GiG’) that will actually work – focused on a very specific ‘real-life’, social, business, or cultural project. GiGRUSH is about self-development and personal growth by DOING, not just by theory but by actually putting what you learn into practice. The Community believes that by uniting the forces and energy of all of its members and by collaborating as one global family, it can bring all of us to totally new, unsurpassed levels which would not be attainable while working alone.

  • • GiGRUSH is about creating a positive ‘ecosystem force’.
  • • A force with the potential to rebuild and change the world in a positive way.
  • • By creating a new GiGRUSH Venture, you support the total global GiGRUSH Ecosystem.
  • • It’s important to mention that all GiGS are owned and administered by the total GIGRUSH Movement, and not by it's individual members. In this way we unite all the energy into one positive super community from where we can redistribute the financial gains amongst all the GiGRUSH Members. GiGRUSH is a foundation and not a company or enterprise. GiGRUSH Ventures (GiGS) can be for profit or non-profit.
  • • A GiG is a venture project started and lead by a GiGGER.
  • • The ultimate purpose of the GiGRUSH Movement is the re-building of the world via thousands of positive GiGS.
    An individual GiG will be able to reward the individuals that have contributed to its development.
    Potential rewards will come from the total Ecosystem and the individual GiG one has been involved in.

Goals of GiGRUSH

  • • A global platform that offers a high level, free-of-charge, ‘learning-by-doing’, training and self development programs
  • • Rebuilding the world via thousands of positive GiGS
  • • Reshaping and improving how everything in our society works via different GiGRUSH Ventures (GiGS)
  • • Create a global ecosystem where ultimately it’s members can find financial independence
  • • A place where GiGS collaborate, and together can create something ‘larger than life’ to benefit all its individual members
  • • To create a community where individuals can do those things in life that they love doing. Those things that make them happy and that can provide them with financial independence
  • • To provide one supportive family of like-minded people
  • • To invent an alternative system of living, working and creating - In a self-sustainable way - Built on positive energy
  • • To create and build GiGS, as well as potential ‘spin-offs’ and real start-ups for the benefit of the total GiG Ecosystem.
  • • A GiGGER can potentially benefit financially due to part of the proceeds being allocated to, and shared between the founders of that individual GiG Team
  • • The GiGRUSH Community believes that the energy, motivation, dedication, collaboration and powers of it’s members exceed both individual and current corporate thinking
  • • To create a platform of contributors that can together manifest any positive project in a short time frame
  • • But most of all, the GiGRUSH Community works together for each individual to reach their goals in life
  • - and have a great time while doing it!

What is GiGRUSH Not about?

• GiGRUSH is not a place where entrepreneurs come to work on individual start-ups, which they incubate for individual purposes. What GiGRUSH wants to do, is a lot more - No individual thinking in this Movement,
- Only United Thinking

‘Private Stichting, The GiG Community Foundation’. Kapelbaan 15, 9255 Buggenhout, Belgium.

GiGRUSH for Students and Non Students:

GiGRUSH has a big focus on creating activities at Universities and Colleges around the world. However GiGRUSH also has a major global program for non students to set-up and contribute to amazing GiGS. GiGRUSH wants every positive person on the planet to join and help make this change happen.

GiG Launch period:

The initial starting period of a GiG (typically +/- 3 months). During that period, the GiG defines and creates a GiG Venture Plan, milestones and objectives, presentation materials, etc. At the end of this launch period, the main objective is to have a working prototype (Alpha version) and to have obtained finance via crowd funding.

GiG Post Launch period:

The period that starts immediately following the end of the initial GiG Launch period

Incorporated GiG:

A GiG that has achieved sufficient natural cash-flow and/or raised sufficient funding to be structured into a (new) legal identity (company or organization, for profit or non-profit).

GiG Fruits:

The ‘G’ or the GiGRUSH Currency:

Is the Internal Currency to be used to facilitate collaboration between GiGS, GiGGERS, GiGRUSH Campus Leaders and GiGRUSH University/College Teams. The GiG Community issues these ‘Gs’ by allocating them:

  • • As a ‘working budget’ for GiGS (to support/facilitate its growth)
  • • To ‘GiGRUSH ‘Troopers’
    This internal-currency-based ‘barter system’ facilitates and allows smooth collaboration and ‘transactions’ within the GiGRUSH Ecosystem. In time, it is the objective of the GiGRUSH Community to attempt to make these ‘Gs’ convertible (exchangeable) against some traditional, monetary currencies such as USD, EUR, GBP, YEN etc. The total available amount of ‘Gs’ in the internal monetary system will depend on the results and the financial gains realized by the individual GiGS and the GiGRUSH Community as a whole (via earnings in owned and administered companies, revenues, exits, etc). It is at the sole discretion of the GiG Administration to decide how much will be allocated to the G-holders. By owning ‘Gs’, individual ‘G’ members can participate in the growth of the GiG Community/Movement around the world. Only the GiG Community Administration will be responsible for the allocation of ‘G budgets’ to individual GiG and/or GiG Troopers.


G:

Individual currency unit of the GiG Currency.

Gs:

It also describes the potential future rewards. The GiG Community Administration needs to formally validate the Letter of Recognition in writing before this LOR can be used within the Community. On a best-effort basis, the GiG Leader will try to do everything possible to make sure that the return can be achieved. It is important to underline that this is on a 'best-effort’ basis. The GiG Leader cannot guarantee validity before having received final confirmation from the GiG Administration. Even upon validity it does not create any legal liability. The LOR is a ‘deed of trust’ by both the issuer (GiG Leader) on one hand and the receiver of the Letter of Recognition on the other. This is not a commitment nor a formal, legally binding obligation nor a ‘debt’ nor an ‘IOU’ of the GiG Community in favor of the receiver or anyone else.

The GiG Community administration will evaluate, weigh and assess the 3 milestone results, and determine if the candidate is eligible to be granted the MGA degree. The degree can be achieved at the member’s own pace at any time. There are no time limits. What matters is to really understand and practice the knowledge in real life.

Relationships between: GiGRUSH Campus Leader and GiG Leader:

Basically there is no direct relationship between these two parties.
The GiGRUSH Campus Leader makes sure that a student/individual becomes a GiGGER and possibly subsequently applies to launch a GiG and possibly becomes a GiG Leader. That is where the formal relationship starts and ends.

The GiG Leader is the ‘captain’ of the GiG Activities. He/she is responsible for the Team including the activities of the individual team members.

Relationships between: GiGRUSH Campus Leader and a GiG Member.

The GiGRUSH Campus Leader is responsible to recruit new GiG Members, to connect them with GiGS, to motivate them to become GiG Leader of a new GiG, and to motivate them to attract other new GiG Members.

If they have any questions, they will turn to the GiGRUSH Campus Leader as there first place of contact.

Cross working:

Most of the activities take place at the actual University/College. However, the power of the platform is to create/build cross-University/College teams; regardless of geographic location. GiG Members can collaborate internationally and in multi-disciplinary teams.

GiG ID Number:

Every GiGGER, GiG, and GiG Rush Campus, is assigned a unique ID number. This ID number can be used to facilitate collaboration and transactions internally.

Difference between a GiG Rush Campus and the actual GiG Campus Leader:

To clarify: the ‘G’ account of the GiGRUSH Campus is totally different and independent from a personal ‘G’ account of the GiGRUSH Campus Leader. The two should not be confused. It is indeed the duty of the GiGRUSH Campus Leader to manage the G-funds of the Campus account. However, these ‘Gs’ do not belong to him/her personally and can only be used for useful activities of the GiG and thus not for personal or non-GiG purposes.
