We've been working behind the scenes to pull together a plan and resources to launch a citywide rewards platform - Localista - that will keep more money in our local economy, while advancing our goals for environmental and community health. Using the successful platform developed by Supportland, we hope to launch it here in 2013.
We need to raise $100,000 to deploy the technology here, recruit businesses in the first five neighborhoods, and launch a marketing campaign. We recently won 1st prize in the Young Non-Profit category at the Social Innovation Fast Pitch, so we're on our way! Localista is also part of an incubation program called Fledge to help accelerate our progress. if you'd like to support the launch or want more information, please contact Erin Nelson.
