There’s a lot of good going on this month, so I thought I’d give an update and let you know about some great things that are happening with Goodnik and friends;
- Conscious Coder is hosting a meetup tomorrow and Goodnik will be showing off a sneak-peek of the new crowd-building platform we’ve been working on. Also in attendance will be John Havens from Happathon talk about how he's applying positive psychology to mobile sensor data to revolutionize human happiness. RSVP on Conscious Coder.
- Goodnik is partnering with Social Good Startup for their Idea To Launch workshop series. This is an eight-week program that provides changemakers with a strong foundation to build a first-class social venture or high impact project. Unlike many other startup workshops that are only tech and for-profit focused, this workshop is designed specifically for the social good community. At the end of the Idea to Launch program, participants will be given free access to Goodnik’s new crowd-building platform, and eligible for consulting services worth $1000 or more to help get their idea off the ground. Cost is normally $499 but Goodnik members get a 10% discount -just mention you heard about the workshop through Goodnik on the application. Apply for Social Good Startup:Idea To Launch.
- Library For All, which is an organization that is building a digital library for the developing world (and which is a Goodnik in Resident at the Alley) has launched a Kickstarter campaign that has raised more than $50,000. They’re just about half-way to their goal of $100,000 and could use your help so make sure you support the project. Support Library for All on Kickstarter.
- Finally, Goodnik has gone west! Katherine Bierce, a longtime Goodnik member, has moved to San Francisco and decided to start her own chapter of Goodnik. She has organized her first event, which is titled Does A Social Enterprise Need a COO? If you’re in SF or know someone who is, check it out!
As always, shoot me a note if you have any questions or comments.
