COLLABORATE

Collaborate is social enterprise founded by four Wellington women. In practice, Collaborate is a mobile app that matches people with volunteer opportunities that are relevant to their skill set and interests. Organisations post specific tasks (such as a social media campaign or hosts needed for an event), and connect instantly with skilled volunteers who indicate interest. Volunteers set their preferences and see instantly opportunities that match their skills, interest and the time they have available; much like a dating app but for opportunities to do good! Collaborate’s vision is to maximise the capacity of organisations who do good (NGOs, social enterprise and community organisations) and empower individuals to create positive change.
