Here at Startacus we’re only too aware of how important it is to get advice, tips and knowledge from other people who’ve been there and done that, as it were - and of course to share that same advice, tips and knowledge with others. So, when we come across something that in a sense does just that, we feel duty bound to pass it on! The ‘it’ we’re referring to is Community How To, a new platform which has been set up with the primary purpose of helping anyone involved in the community or third sector to learn from each other and to discover the best digital tools that they ought to be using.
Whether you’re looking to raise funds for a community project, recruit volunteers or organise an event, there are a plethora of resources on the site which can help. It’s not just a platform which lists useful digital tools and resources though - there are practical case studies where other organisations and groups outline how they used particular tools and how their experience was. Sharing knowledge and getting feedback like this is after all invaluable.
Like any good community platform though it needs people to get involved! Contributions are welcome - whether it’s through suggesting or recommending new digital tools that should be profiled or outlining your own community group’s experiences in a case study.
It’s still relatively early days for Community How To but we reckon that it will become a real definitive resource for anyone in the third or community sector before too long. If that’s you, then we say go check it out, get learning and get sharing your own tips and experiences too!
If you like what you see here on Startacus and want to get involved yourself, why not become a member of our growing community by joining for free here!
We caught up with recent Self Starter of the Week Derek Ahmedzai to find out about more about his funding platform Fundsurfer, crowdfunding more generally, and what makes someone a Self Starter in the first place!
