Engage Your Employees Easily with MeetingPulse

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

MeetingPulseIt’s important for employees to feel involved in the company they work for. Usually the decision-making is left up to the powers that be and the employees feel inadequate and left out. MeetingPulse is there to help the employees be more engaged in the meeting itself.

The premise is to have a pre-meeting to a web-based URL . The people on the team receive the link and can take a poll regarding perhaps some things that were discussed at the last meeting. Some of these can be discussing points made at the previous meeting or questions they may have. This is to pre-engage them for the upcoming meeting. Their answers can be hidden until they come into the meeting, or they can see the answers to the poll in advance. The information received through these polls can change the entire flow or reason for the meeting in the first place.

This is available now and has several different models, starting with a trial plan for a week to see if this fits in with your business all the way up to a large-based plan for large companies that meet with several hundred people at the same time. These larger plans have more developed features. This service is easy to use and very convenient for your phone. Base price starts at $79.00 a month.

TechGirl Leads Young Women to Be A Powerful Force in Technology

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

TechGirlImagine being a young female with a lot of great ideas for starting up a company and you cannot get someone to listen to you because of who you are-a female. Enter TechGirl, whose mission it is to connect those young females, those technology entrepreneurs, with a network of specialty advisers and mentorships to help them launch their start-up companies. Its founder, Jennifer DeReyes, shared a story about how her passion for this company was formed. She was at an IBM conference with her 8 year old daughter and upon being asked what she noticed about the room filled with 20,000 people, her daughter replied “Where are the women? I see all men.” TechGirl wants to change that gender gap.

They have a network of internal resources that include advisers in finance, marketing, and development who are looking for girls who have the biggest and brightest ideas to help to bring them into the STEM Pipeline. The best way is to get them early, as young as elementary school and expose them to STEM and into the pipeline and then into the Incubation Lab that they can successfully launch their product. During this process they work with advisers and mentors in finance and marketing for about a year to help bring their product or service to fruition. In doing this, they will come out on the other end ready to manage a company, a benefit not available without TechGirl. You can be a mentor or a mentee.

This service is based in Philadelphia and California. The app will launch in November 2017.

Seeking a Real Love Match? Engage Your Entourage for the Best!

Friday, June 9th, 2017

The Set-upIt’s getting to the point where dating apps are almost a dime a dozen anymore. But if you are looking for an app that completely sets itself apart from the rest, look no further than The Set-up.

What makes this dating app different, you ask? It’s really quite simple. The Set-up incorporates a Sounding Board into the decision making process. Everyone on the site will have the Sounding Board of their choosing, which consists of 2-5 people. So you can have your best friend, a cousin, co-worker, parent or even your adult children involved in the decision making process. There are also added security features built in. These features include background checks, actual camera photos (not just some stock photo from 10 years ago) and even video chats so that you can get to know the person somewhat before that first date and know more of who to expect.

The way this works is that when two daters choose each other, their information is then sent to each others Sounding Board, who votes yay or nay… and majority rules. So if your board doesn’t agree that it would be a good match, no connection is made. This gives each match the unique perspective that only those who know you best can provide.

The app is scheduled to launch in August of this year and will be available on iOS, Android and on the web. The basic app will be free with some features available for a premium. We find this to be such a cool and fresh approach to typical and stale online dating and we are looking forward to keeping track of their progress as it hits the market.

Now You Can Your Donate Money with Democracy in Mind

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

Ultimatum IncUltimatum Inc is a new and completely fascinating crowd funding platform for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. The founders looked outside of the norm and realized that by joining funds from multiple, like minded sources, the idea of donating becomes simple and quite lucrative. These “micro donations” are based upon real world events and create an atmosphere where people want to commit to an idea and achieve goals together.

The power of grassroots is massive and the majority who have little can combine together and do more than the few who have a lot. Their web and mobile platforms allow users to make automated donations by choosing exactly which events will trigger the donation to the charity of their choice. They can then boost the reach of the donation by sharing with friends and family on social media. And at the very essence of this process is democracy. We all have the opportunity to put our money where our mouths are and make positive changes in our own government.

This company exist for those who want to move the bar. They exist for Democracy. Get involved! Check out their Indiegogo campaign today.
