Where small businesses and Gov’t collaborate on stories that matter.

In our research we found that there was a disconnect between small businesses and gov’t entities. They didn’t know who to call or where to turn when they needed something - most importantly they didn’t trust them.

We created an app that would serve as the small businesses platform to visually tell what they needed and be communicated to the right agencies in a transparent and networked way.

On Dashboard you can create and “start” stories of things that need to be done. The get filtered to the correct agency from the app and once the need has been met the stories “end” with results. As stories are uploaded businesses are able to search past “stories” for reference and they are visualized on a city wide map.

Along the way, they can jump into our Dashboard truck and experience a large interactive map to see the progress that's been made in the city.
