Founder Grid7 & Charity Makeover
Howdy everyone. Mel from Makerpad did a piece on me about a month ago and it tells my story better than I can.

I was formerly the Director of Sales for Pagely, the premier managed WordPress host and quit my job in February to go full-time on the passion project which I believe to be my life's work. We are now enabling doers around the world to self-organize and pair up with local charities to amplify their effectiveness through contributing projects in a movement very similar to Startup Weekend only via our special hackathon format.  We've done 7 of them thus far and you can get a good feel for the flavor of what they are via this 2min video:

We're now navigating the post-Covid world with everyone else and have rapidly converted our event format to be all-remote. I know there are a ton of incredibly talented people in this community and I would love the opportunity to work with each of you on a future event figuring out how to apply your badass nocode skills towards helping these worthy causes.

You can right now see which charities can use your skills by going to app.charitymakeover.org and find pitches from the founders and details on what we're building for each.

I'll be posting some of the learnings I have from building our stack with Adalo, Zapier & ActiveCampaign and doing some novel things with each tool. Mixpanel customer journeys is my next conquest as far as what I believe will be the next game-changer for us in terms of highly-personalized, intelligently-timed, cross-channel followup.

If you want more on my backstory and the decision to ditch a very nice job of 5yrs to go all-in on this crazy project read this post on my personal blog. Looking forward to meeting you and hearing your story.
