Changify is a crowd funding platform to create better neighbourhoods.
Changify was borne in response to the lack of simple crowd-funding platforms for ordinary people to easily change their neighbourhood by spotting something they care about, sharing it, coming up with a solution, finding support and backers amongst neighbours, councils, local business and brands to help realise it.
Across the world, phones are being used to usher change whether its the Arab Spring or Tahir Square. We need to better harness mobile tech to improve our cities tapping on our collective crowd intelligence.
We want to transform society starting at neighbourhood level, dissolving the barriers between change agents so that ordinary people can find it easy to activate change locally, direct from their phone. By taking photos of things they care about, sharing it online, finding support to solve them and turning them into possible solutions with the participation of brands, councils and local businesses, Changify aims to be a win/win/win platform.
With Changify, all relevant stakeholders connect for sustainable benefits and citizens get rewarded with an improved local economy and a renewed civic realm.
What is crowd intelligence? How can we tap on it to fund and create better neighbourhoods ? Who needs to come together? How can we activate local change directly from our phones when we are walking down the street in our cities?
