When crisis hits, nobody knows what's needed where, leading to massive waste and inefficiency.
In the past week we’ve been receiving an increasing number of inbound requests looking for help, from vulnerable communities that need supplies and services, and from companies that are looking for a way to donate their products and services, and volunteer talent. We’re already testing the platform with Aviation WIthout Borders, and are about to begin a second deployment with the CORE Group, an umbrella network coordinating a range of community health actors, including private sector, NGO partners, and global partners. We want to make our toolsets free for the CORE Group, nonprofits and small businesses for as long as possible during this time of crisis. We’re a small team at NeedsList. In order to ramp up our tech while offering customized support matching needs to offers, we are looking for the financial support to allow us to: - Quickly scale our tech stack and customer service to respond to the influx of demand and avoid lengthy contract negotiations. - Support offline matching of needs to resources, logistics, and procurement, especially for vulnerable populations. - Provide our partners with marketing and outreach support to quickly deploy NeedsList within their communities.
