City Hero is a new concept inspired by the devastation of Covid-19. In the face of so many struggling local businesses and people needing to save money - how to help them all? Worse affected are those already marginalized. What about them?
Using Our Powers for Good
We play to our strengths, and for us that meant a simple concept which could take a myriad of variations. It's the coupon book of the 21st century - completely online and self perpetuating. We created a circular loop of people giving a little to get alot back. For every sale, we've made it a winning arrangement for business and customer, which giving a large percentage of the proceeds back to nonprofits and charities in the community.
Quick to Market
City Hero is built on the Rev Rocket platform, which cut development time by an order of magnitude. Once we established the concept, the live site was up within a couple weeks.
