Just met a very cool guy called Ritvidj running a startup supported by UnLtd India.
His venture is called Tracksgiving and he offers a secure payment channel for small donations, including tax exemption statements for donors. Looks like a match made in heaven!
We’re now exploring collaboration, sharing ideas on revenue models and operations.
His revenue is based on a commission from NGO’s receiving the donated funds, whereas we are thinking to charge the retailers a membership fee.
He works with large NGO’s such as CARE India, which has the big advantage of using their existing quality control and Monitoring & Evaluation processes. The Tipping Point is all about local and direct so we face a challenge of ensuring full proof accountability.
Let us know if you know of similar organisations from whom we can learn and with whom we can work. Crowd based solutions need a crowd to share ideas!
