Take a Survey, Help a Monkey


Dear Readers,

Today, I’m asking each of you to do me a huge favor. I know, I shouldn’t necessarily be asking my readers for anymore favors but, in all honesty, it would be a huge help – and mean a lot.

As many of you know, I’m in the process of building a mobile application. Before putting in over 100 hours of work in building the actual app, I’d like to gauge the level of interest for it.  So, if you don’t mind, please take the survey and pass it along to at least 3 friends.

I greatly appreciate your help!

Seeking: A New Biz Name


First, Happy Holidays! Hopefully you all had a wonderful Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, or any other holiday you and your family might celebrate.  I hope that 2011 is a healthy, happy and successful year for you and your friends/family.

What it was

Instead of providing you with some tidbit of information, I’m writing today to ask you all for a favor.  As you might have noticed by my updated “About” page, I’ve changed the focus of what was once known as Campaignerships. Originally, the idea behind Campaignerships was to connect nonprofits working on similar campaigns all while incentivizing these collaborative efforts.

After much soul-searching…actually, more like discussions…I’ve decided to change the focus of the business I’m in the process of starting.

What it is

Now, I am taking the business into the field of mobile apps. I won’t be going into too much detail, but essentially I want to help nonprofits build mobile applications that they can share with their supporters. Many nonprofits – both big and small – are lacking in the realm of technology, especially mobile technology. Whether it’s adapting their websites to allow access via mobile devices or creating mobile apps, most nonprofits aren’t up with the times.  I want to help change that.

Here’s where you come in

I’m currently trying to come up with a new name for the company and I’d love your help! I’d like the name to be fairly straight forward – when someone hears the name, they understand what we do – and here are some terms I’d love to include:

  • Mobile
  • Social Good
  • Cause(s)

Obviously I can’t include all of those terms, but if you can help me come up with a business name with at least one of those terms (or even half of the term, i.e. Mobil vs. Mobile), I’d be forever grateful! Leave your ideas in the comment section or feel free to e-mail me.

I’d love your help!


Looking for a Co-Founder…Any Takers?


Hi All,

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: jeremy@campaignerships.com. Also, if you could forward this along, I’d greatly appreciate it!

Thanks all!

Jeremy
