I am part of a constituency group in Victoria. I was contacted to streamline the system used to connect people with items to donate with those people who are helping refugee families come to Victoria.
I built a database driven system to connect users so that all of this outpouring of charity does the most good.
I worked for a start-up company. They pulled the trigger on seeking funding a little too fast. They were out there talking up their product while it was still vapourware. Most investors said, “I want to look at the prototype.” This created a crazy amount of pressure to develop an elaborate and almost impossible product with no time and no money; and, do it all from scratch.
