Folcode, a software developer company, has agreed to give us an agile cell of developers for 4 months to develop part of our app prototype, which equals $80.000 USD in the market.
Their motivations include: promoting Folcode’s corporate social responsability and reputation by gifting digital products, developed by Folcode’s academy students, to businesses with social impact.
CECAM, an NGO for the integral formation of women in Derqui, Buenos Aires, Argentina, has developed a social “challenge” with us, giving us their time, space and audience for a day to prototype our experience design, which would translate to $200 USD.
Their motivations include: gaining more strategic alliances, more volunteers and visibility to keep operating, and offering a true integral formation for the women they help.
Martín Salaberri, professor of engineering at Austral University, has given us a team of 13 software engineering students for 4 months and helped us develop 75% of the functional core and programming achitecture of the app prototype, which translates to $90.000 USD in the market.
His motivations include: giving students the opportunity to work with clients with real needs to learn in the process, and generating strategic alliances with the purpose that his students’ software generates extra income for the University.

How could we promote women’s independence by seizing the power of digital tools and technologies?
We designed a workshop for women that attend the CECAM, a center for the integral formation of women in vulnerable situations. As many of the women were entrepeneurs, they already had their own brands and sold various products or services. Nonetheless, they count on scarce resources and tools to create content of value for their potential customers. “Ellas diseñan” (They design in english) was the workshop created to train these women in product photography, with 2 modules: a theoretical one, and a practical one, to improve their visual communication skills, gain more sales, and become more independant.
