Phil has been working on some new pages featuring the core businesses and organizations that have been active participants in our Goshen Funded crowdfunding project from the beginning. These local organizations are contributing to the overall vision for this web site. We are working with them to devise potential new crowdfunding campaigns that will help to launch this new community resource. And we are grateful for their willingness to be “test subjects” as the parts and pieces of this project come together.
All these organizations will be showcased in the new “Organizations” category that now exists in the sidebar here on our blog.
One of our technical challenges with these organization pages is to be able to dynamically display the local crowdfunding campaigns that each organization has helped, through Rewards they’ve created and offered to various local campaigns that they wish to support. That automation will help create more connections between businesses and campaigns and other businesses — in other words, create an ecosystem of related activity that spurs further innovation and creativity here in our local community.
Of course the most important active participant in this project is Community Funded, the startup in Fort Collins, Colorado that is creating the actual crowdfunding platform we’re using on our own web site here, on the Campaigns page.
