We all have an inner yearning to do good that can be classified as a "moral law within," but more often than not we feel paralyzed by the vastness of the worlds problems. So we begin to make excuses like " I am only one person, the worlds problems are too big for me to address." A2D (Assist 2 Develop) is a freelance marketplace we have created that lets each of us tap into that "moral law within" and extract solutions to address challenges with like minded individuals. Imagine engineering and marketing freelancers working with philanthropists and entrepreneurs on a single web based platform to achieve a common goal. What kind of solutions can be discovered when we combine an indigenous individuals perspective / knowledge regarding challenges they face with the resources and know how to solve them?
This is why we have created A2D (Assist 2 Develop). A2D is a freelance marketplace dedicated to the development of physical products that deliver social good. It can be a product that will solve global challenges or a simple life hack. Someone with an idea for an invention or a small business looking to create innovative products can post their project on A2D and request support in different areas of expertise. Once connected you and your team can collaborate in real time using our digital workspace. Essentially A2D will give you the ability to build a virtual team of individuals with similar aspirations to help create the change you want to see in the world.
Not only can this help to solve problems, but it also begins to create a new economy where people come before profits. Small businesses, freelancers, and entrepreneurs working together and reinvigorating there local economies at the same time. It's at this point that we come to the realization that we aren't so different, thanks to modern day technology the world has in fact become much smaller, and most importantly each of us as individuals have the power to affect positive changes in the world we live in.
