The Saphie company was all about connecting organizations with volunteers during an event like a marathon.
Benefits for volunteers were that they exactly knew what and when to do. Benefits for organizations were that they had instant insights in volunteer management and could ask for certain skills in order to select volunteers.
The network effect for the Saphie company was to get existing organization including their volunteers on board so volunteers could also volunteering in other organizations.
Didn't succeed because: biased image of the branche, too much development focused.
Technology stack: Blaze, SASS, MeteorJS, Mongo, Docker
