What is Pivot Project?
We started with a big idea during the escalation of the Global Pandemic: What if we could use content and social media to crowdsource COVID-19 problems and connect them with problem solvers and solutions?
We are excited to announce that after a few short weeks and a lot of hard work from a fantastic team of doers, Pivot Project is live!
The world is going through a significant shift as a result of the current pandemic. The impact of this change is only slowly coming to light. We are collecting real-world obstacles, from real people and businesses, and asking for help to solve for what our governments cannot. We believe strongly in the 55/5 rule for problem-solving: we spend 55 minutes finding the problem and 5 minutes solving it. Let’s connect problems with problem solvers and watch how fast we can progress further, communities can transform, people can grow, and businesses can innovate.
When creating the concept for Pivot Project, we recognized that there were already many organizations that were helping out and many initiatives that already exist. We asked ourselves, "How can we help in a way that provides value and doesn't dilute or duplicate current efforts?" That's when we realized a common theme among many of the existing initiatives; they needed more reach and awareness.
How can we help people and organizations find solutions? Our answer: to create a centralized location for state and federal resources, vetted non-profit organizations, public initiatives, and develop a team of volunteer media partners, brands, influencers, and writers to help deliver the additional reach.
Welcome to Pivot Project, here's how you can help.
