Startup Ideas | Karma Score

Problem

(I found that while I had been capturing my startup ideas over the last few years, I wrote down this idea 3 times =) unintentionally.  I guess, I really like this idea =)

How do you encourage people to do good deeds in their community? How do you stimulate the philanthropy and volunteering? How do you make it look and feel cool?

Solution

A Klout-like scoring system to earn and show your karma score which is built based on a person’s contribution to the community by doing good deeds and bringing “good” to the world.

Startup Ideas | Helping Others Platform

Problem

As a person, who wants to build stronger long-term relationships with other people in their professional network one of the best ways to do this is by helping them with what they may need help with at the moment, without expecting anything in return. More of a “philanthropic” investment in your karma, when the quality of the relationships is more important than the number of your (meaningless) connections.

Solution

A platform (don’t want to say social network =) where people can share publicly or privately what their current needs are (e.g. find a new job, find a new client for their service, find a professional for a need, find a volunteer, etc.). As a part of this platform, you can see the current needs of your network on your “radar” and help them with that they may be needing help with. For example, connect a business owner who needs help with their social media campaign with another connection of yours who can help them with this campaign. As a result, they both help each other and get value out of this new connection. And you get good karma points =)

Startup Ideas | Volunteering for Employees

Problem

I couldn’t find an easy way to find volunteering opportunities with filtering of the needed help, locations, dates/times, etc. And as a good human, I believe people should help others in need and there must be a better way to find who needs help. As an employer, you want to promote ethical behaviour and ‘help others’ mindset. Finding the societies or non-profits who need help takes time and effort, and quite a burden for HR team when they are already swamped with their primary responsibilities.

Solution

A platform for companies to bridge the gap between non-profits and other organization who would benefit from volunteering help and their employees who want to contribute to their communities by volunteering. With karma points for the work the employees do, and gamification to stimulate the “give-back” actions.
