Network schema of "Bridge" platform
The striking gap between Non-profits, community and potential corporate sponsors.
What it does :
Application that allows Non-profits in various sectors, volunteer/user community and corporate sponsors actively engage with each other. Non-profits push event notifications to community. Volunteers can raise relevant issues as suggestions to various Non-profits belonging to a specific cause. Recommendation engine to show custom recommendations of Non-profits and events based on interests in social causes and proximity are created. Corporate sponsors can easily identify credible Non-profits to support and collaborate with.
