I’m in a bit of a pickle, so I figured I would turn to all of you for a bit of help.
For about the past month I’ve been in the process of developing this idea for Campaignerships. I’m towards the end of drilling my idea down (which, I guess, is the 1st stage), which should be finished by next week after I have a few phone calls with some pretty cool people in the nonprofit sector. If you check out one of my older posts, Incentivizing Partnerships, it will give you a quick glimpse as to what I’m working on (although this might slightly change depending on these upcoming calls).
My background is in advocacy work, which I have been doing for 8 years now. I have a firm grasp on the nonprofit sector – how organizations function, what some of their pitfalls are, how successful nonprofits became successful, etc. I also have a lot of great friends who have worked in the nonprofit field for years and have graciously shared their input and advice on my ideas.
So, why am I going on a rant about all this? Well, I need some help. As some of you might know, I’ve always been the type of person that (oddly) can think better when I’m working with other people. I feel that my ideas flow better when I’m talking about them with other people and I actually get a lot more work down when I’m in a group setting. I just love collaborating with other people who share the same amount of passion and energy as I have (if you couldn’t tell by now)!
I’m looking for someone – preferably in the Boston-area – to help me get Campaignerships off the ground. I’d really like to meet someone with an engineering or web development background. Someone who has tons of energy, compassion, great ideas, and loves the concept of “social good” – which is what Campaignerships focuses on. Unfortunately, there is no money at this time, however I hope to get some funding in the next 2 months – I just need a product to show potential investors! Oh, and you might even be considered a “co-founder”, which is a cool thing to throw on a business card/resume.
If that sounds at all like you, I’d love to meet you – I’ll pay for a cup of coffee (and maybe a salad…but no sandwich). Speaking of coffee, I hope you’re willing to hang out at various cafes and bounce ideas off of each other!
If you, or someone you know, might be interested in helping me out, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you could forward this along, I’d greatly appreciate it!
