I’m the developer/director of an internet-based support platform called buddygroups (which is currently setup as a UK non-profit CIC).
After three and a half years of self-funded development the project sadly went into stasis. The support platform, which can have many applications, was geared towards supporting individuals in supporting one another through life-change of some form – whether two friends committing to a life change or a GP/practitioner/client/group relationship. The platform was functional and ready for wider testing before it was finally put on ice.
The key challenges were
- how to continue funding the project (and therefore provide time for continued development)
- how to find the right people to move the project into the next phase (which would include sales/marketing/networking/tech support etc).
I am currently working full-time again to pay the bills but loath the thought of completely letting go of this still potential-filled project. I am therefore looking for collaborators of like-mind to help take the project forwards into its next phase.
I’m not attached to the structure and form regarding how the project should/could move forward and (as long as the core ethics are honoured – see our core statement) I would love to be part of a collaborative team of like-minded individuals.
If you’re interested in finding out more, would like to get involved, or have some advice to offer, please do contact me on 07868 527090 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also browse the very dated public website here (the platform itself is on a separate domain). Please note that it doesn’t have any images of the practice section which is really a core feature of the platform.
Many thanks for your time.
