Good for Nothing - Collaboration for a Cause!
by Startacus Admin
Bearing in mind that we look at lots of new websites every day, it takes a lot to get us here at Startacus excited these days. However with Good for Nothing, we reckon we might have just found one of our spiritual cousins - and thought it best to share the good news.
Good for Nothing gets smart folk together with a plan - the plan being that they collaborate together to ‘solve stuff that matter’. Now bearing in mind that Startacus’ collaboration tool is nearing completion and that once unleashed you will be able to share your ideas and projects and seek member support, you can sense the potential ying and yang we are getting at.
Whereas Startacus is looking to help self starters get started with their own jobs and projects by collaborating together, the clever folk over at Good for Nothing concentrate on teams of well doers coming together to accelerate the work of social innovators, change makers, and projects that are just looking to make a difference.
Its kinda like the anti-Thatcherite “There is no such thing as Society” and just flips that attitude on its head. Solving problems and challenges collectively both offline through gigs (24 to 48 hour think, hack do creative collaboration events) and online via the site is a bold ambition and one that we love the look of. Plus aesthetically the site looks great.
Current challenges require marketing and branding support to help a venture supporting disadvantaged kids; ideas and suggestions on how the Lambeth community can be brought together, and the need for designers and developers to design and build a web based dashboard to help householders view their energy consumption.
Startacus looks forward to hearing more about Good for Nothing over the coming months and you never know perhaps collaborating on a few things too :)
