As you already know, our NGO for this Project Community module is CNCPTMKR, founded and managed by Marteen van Leeuwen. Our challenge: create a specialists (online/offline) network on Sustainable Agriculture and Social Innovation.
While researching how to achieve our goals, we had many online meetings with Marteen and Nancy, who helped a lot. The classes also approached interesting topics, such as Work teams, Marketing, Crowdsourcing and Crowdfunding, Technology.
Our starting point to help Marteen, CROWDSOURSING!
He needs help, that`s clear!
Although he has great ideas, it is not possible to make it all happen by himself. That`s something we can even see in a simple Project Community challenge, everything works better if you have a good team to support you. Marteen is overwhelmed right now and it`s so true that he is not even answering our emails anymore. He needs to manage better his online tools (Professional website, LinkedIn profile, Facebook profile…) and MARKETING!
From our surveys, we realized that many people don`t know about Sustainable Agriculture, neither about CNCPTMKR. And as we explain people what is it about, many of them think it is a good concept, so … let`s make it known!
Marteen needs to create a strong brand, with a good approach and clear purposes to make it credible. Then, it has to go online through Crowdsourcing platforms, that`s how he will start to create a network around his brand.
With a strong brand and people to help him, the next step: HIS OWN PLATFORM!
An online platform based on Sustainable Agriculture, with many specialists and people interested in helping, everyone making the projects into reality. That`s the dream and we do believe it is possible to make it happen.
Now, what I consider a little gift from our group to Marteen – the logo for his brand.
Finally, I`d like to thank everyone from my group for all the meetings, help, `happy beers` and the great job we did together. It was great working with you!
