My ideal job has come up - but in the wrong country. I would just LOVE to see this mission by Aspiration taken up in Portugal for the Lusofone world. And you could count on me to be one of the cross-sector, cross-disciplinary team. Maybe the workshop I'm doing with Equal could be the beginning. Anyway, as soon as I've finished my doc. Aspiration and CoP2.0 is the mission I'll be on.
Aspiration facilitates better software for the sector so that nonprofits and NGOs all around the world have relevant, appropriate, usable, and affordable software readily available so that they, in turn, can change the world.
We convene and facilitate events that bring together users, developers, intermediaries, and investors to articulate and focus their needs, spark relationships and collaboration, and share skills and knowledge in the nonprofit software realms;
We are building the Social Source Commons, a “knowledge commons” that maps the nonprofit software space. It provides information on nonprofit software available, and links to relevant documentation, localization tools, user reviews, and events and services;
Aspiration offers a range of support services that help create and sustain useful software for civil society. We offer consulting, mentoring, and infrastructure support for civil society software projects with an aim toward building the capacity of developers and project leads.
