The Biz Dev Update

November 19, 2007 at 2:06 am Leave a comment

The Business Development group pulled together after about 48 hours at SF Startup Weekend held at the Microsoft offices in San Francisco. A core group of 10 committed entrepreneurial-spirited folks came together to formulate a plan for what this product will actually achieve for their company, HelpHookup.

We defined our Vision as a community working together to improve our world.

We also came up with our Mission which is to make it easy for the users to hookup with others to volunteer in the global community.

We concluded that there is a void for an ongoing community in volunteer organizations. Through HelpHookup we defined a way to reward the volunteer and empower them to build continuity of volunteering and motivation through recognition of their contribution.

We are going to accomplish this through the following implementations.
1) Facebook – An application that will engage and retain volunteers through a Plugin
2) Website – Create a platform to seek, to engage and to retain users
3) Social Portals – Leverage existing social portals starting with Facebook to achieve critical mass

In addition we will offer a system of point rewards that will contribute to volunteer accountability and fostering communities.
