What inspired you to come up with your idea in the first place?:
My experience in setting-up community projects has taught me that there are a rapidly increasing number of great resources out there that would be really useful for Australian social innovation. Over the past three years, my work in supporting social innovators around Australia, via the not-for-profit organisation Project Australia (http://projectaustralia.org.au), has reaffirmed that others feel similarly. Frustrated with how difficult it has been to find these resources, I started to database the tools I was discovering. Having regularly shared these tools with others via Project Australia’s Twitter account and pro-bono consulting, I have been inspired by encouraging user-feedback and the simplicity of sharing in this way.
From 1-5, what stage of development would you say your idea is in? - Explain further:
Stage 2: Project Australia has already assembled a database of over 300 tools, with another 300 identified and awaiting further research. Data has been sorted across categories/tags including: type; title; description; primary and secondary tags; location; webpage; cost; comments - so the information is ready to go!
