Crowdsource a Smart Civilization

The 197th nation is the first crowdsourcing platform that combines urban food production methods with other sustainable approaches.

Use Case

Sustainability and urban food production experts from different stages of consumption goods industry chain with solution for food deficiency problem at hand want to gain necessary resources, in the form of knowledge, manpower or financial support to implement their ideas. These projects propose their solutions in our platform and on the other hand the crowd who consists of people who believe we need to transform our future for good put their resources to implement these projects in their areas of living.

Potential

Our platform is a hybrid between crowdsourcing and smart city solution that are both in the very front line of innovation globally. Crowdsourcing is a 8 years old phenomenon that is proven to be the tool generating a strong connection between masses and projects and smart & future cities is a 250£ billion emerging market. 197 Nation is the designated crowdsourcing platform that focuses on smart city solutions globally. It covers both solutions that aim at turning the existing infrastructure into smart ones and solutions that could be implemented in upcoming cities. considering that 75% of the populations will turn to live in the cities by 2050, it is necessary to support urban food production with sufficient means to be implemented in the cities.

Business Case

We follow the proven commission-based business model of other crowdsourcing platforms. From every successfully funded campaign on the platform we take a percentage of the profits (5.4%). The revenue is driven by transaction volume. Hence the more projects that are launched and successfully funded, the more money is made.

Objectives:

  1. to put urban food production methods next to each other in cohesion to create more comprehensive solutions.
  2. to engage the public with urban food production to test their functionality and desirability in affordable scales.
