In the fall of 2010, I launched Ideavibes tapping into my network of smart colleagues and friends and my background in marketing technology products such as software, hardware, etc.
Ideavibes is a bootstrapped start-up focused on carving a niche in the innovation space with focused on crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. We have built a crowd engagement platform that makes it easy for governments, companies and non-profits to create crowdsourcing and crowdfunding campaigns to use the crowd to move their businesses forward.
One of the initiatives we launched in Feb/2010 using our platform is Fundchange which is one of Canada's first crowdfunding destination sites for charities to make change one project at a time. The opportunity to work with TELUS on this initiative has been a great experience and I look forward to making it a success.
