Portuguese social organization, located in Porto, Portugal, focused in connecting, learning, sharing, inspiring and being inspired to change the world by means of a platform where one can promote his/her ideas, discover and participate in another person’s project, study social innovation or find another’s project to invest in it.
The organization is looking for investors that help support travels around the world to film videos about social innovation and thus scale the platform.
More and more social entrepreneurs, organizations, investment policies, and new solutions turn up for the generation of social good. The problem is that these solutions and people remain very often anonymous. The field of social innovation remains fragmented and there is a need for more developed networks for brokering the connections needed to nurture and scale up social innovations.
Also, there has been an increase of the need to develop communication skills and tools for social entrepreneurs.
The organization wants to create the world´s best looking social good network and thus ease the access to knowledge through a collaborative, sharing and open source platform, which will gather and organize social good sector information (projects, organizations, networks, people and grants).
The purpose of this business offer is to promote learning, sharing and networking between the world’s changers by means of a platform where one can:
- Explore the social innovation sector (projects and organizations)
- Have access to big data analysis and search tools
- Reach network management tools for social organizations and grantmakers
- Find tools to start his/her project
- Find where to invest around the world
- Support new initiatives
- Share and follow
In order to do so, the organization needs to find financing providers that help support travels around the world to film videos about social innovation (useful to give a visible scale range to the concept) and thus scale the platform.
Once the platform is enriched with contents, the organization will focus on attracting social entrepreneurs (individuals and institutions) interested to join the project and reference their knowledge for their own projects or others they might know or be interested in.
Based on the concept ‘greater the knowledge, greater the responsibility’, the Portuguese organization is creating a free-access online collaborative platform that gathers social responsibility know-how (projects, organizations, grants, tools, events, academic knowledge).
Data aggregation, that is the hallmark of this program. In one single platform, one can search by sector or by country, connecting citizens and ideas for social innovation and leveraging on collective intelligence and action to address sustainability challenges.
To engage and mobilize a new generation of change makers, in the next three years, the organization will be traveling around the world to know stories of social innovation, producing and disseminating videos of projects, stories and inspiring people.
Anyone with a social attitude and an open mind can join the platform and reference their knowledge. The platform is user friendly. Knowledge can be corrected, added, commented and discussed by others inside the platform. In this collaborative way, the available information and network grows day by day and so the world changers.
The Beta version of the platform is being prepared and is estimated to be launched in September, 15th. The organization team has already started travelling the world filming the first videos about social innovation.
The organization is seeking partners to be part of the platform, feeding it with their projects and ideas, sharing and following it.
It is also searching for investors to scale the platform.
Knowledge on collective awareness platforms for sustainability and social innovation would be desirable.
