The team at philanthropist.org is continuing our mission to: Help all people become Philanthropists. January was a busy month! The team recruited more "workerteers" for our Tuesday evening sessions in Downtown Boston. Also, recruiting continues for the upcoming Micro-Finance Field Study Tour, SIGN UP NOW! The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Application continues to evolve and incorporates numerous third party open-source software applications. Shout out to software engineer Abhishek and web developer Jonathan for providing much of the code wizardry. While building a nifty web application is certainly useful - the team is focused on its goal of helping people connect and fund micro-sized loans, investments, and donations. Management continues to pioneer a new organizational structure and legal structure, and the venture continues to adapt while building several corporate partnerships.
philanthropist.org is a Micro-Finance technology platform which allows everyday people to function as philanthropists (small scale donors and socially-minded investors) to directly and efficiently interface with workerteers (entrepreneurs and volunteers) for the purpose of small dollar transactions with maximum efficiency and minimal transactional overhead.
