As many of you know, my brother (Matthew) and I (Stephen) have been squeezing every minute over the past few years to work on our start-up, Bloom. We've been working closely with publishers in your neighborhood (once newspapers) to help them improve how they serve news to you and your friends and family. We were just chosen to exhibit Bloom at one of the biggest technology conferences in the world - Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal and we need your help to get there!
The conference manager has kindly waived all costs for us to attend the conference, to exhibit Bloom, to hire a conference manager, and to schedule meetings with potential team members and investors. The only costs that we are responsible for are... to actually get to Lisbon. This adds up to $5,000 for two people - $2,500 round-trip and $2,500 hotel accommodation.
Any donation you can give will be greatly appreciated! If you're able to donate $15 or more, you'll receive a personal letter and Bloom sticker pack, and recognition on this campaign page (if not anonymous). If you donate $30 or more, we'll make sure to keep you informed of our trip by email as we arrive and spend time in Lisbon. This is an opportunity we do not want to miss and hope you can help bring our dream to life.
MORE ABOUT BLOOM (www.bloom.li)
Bloom is a geolocation platform for local news publishers. We work with publishers in your neighborhood to help organize their content online so it can be personalized to you more efficiently. The idea for Bloom was written on wrinkled notebook paper 4 years ago and we began working full-time with local publishers 2 years ago. We have pushed through a rigorous fellowship in NYC for 5 months in 2016 and are proud to tell you that we're now partnering with over 30 local publishers that serve neighborhoods around the world. Including New York City, Vancouver BC, Berlin and Cologne in Germany, Cambridge UK, and many more. We're excited to work closely with these passionate community leaders in hopes that we serve your neighborhood soon too. Visit www.bloom.li to learn more.
