Developing Mobile Apps from Idea to Launch: Case Study - TechSoup Webinar

Want to create a mobile app for your nonprofit or library? Then this is the webinar for you. 

From developing the initial idea, to the process of developing and launching an app, TechSoup's very own Anna Jaeger and Keith Thode, COO of Aidmatrix, will share their experience of creating the SafeNight app for domestic violence service organizations.

When an individual is in urgent need of shelter, a qualified staff member at a domestic violence service organization can initiate a request for hotel room funding. Supporters who have downloaded SafeNight will receive a notification that an individual is in need and have an opportunity to immediately cover the cost of the hotel room. Crowdfunding safe housing for communities in need.

Anna and Keith will share how the app idea came about, what the process looked like for engaging the community, creating the design, partnering with for-profit companies and nonprofit developers, and soft launching in the Marketplace earlier this month. You'll come away with some key steps in the process, some best practices and pitfalls to avoid, and a look at the inside of creating an app for social good.

If your nonprofit, charity, or library is interested in creating your own app, join us to learn more about TechSoup's Caravan Studios process for creating SafeNight and other apps. You can check out the concept paper to give you ideas for where to begin with an app for your organization. 

You can also learn more about apps for social change with resources from TechSoup.
