Non-profit idea - Kolabo (Directory)

Founded by Mercy Corps, Kolabo supports entrepreneurs and micro, small and medium enterprises in Indonesia (with the goal of expanding services to other emerging markets) to get online and use the internet to fuel economic and job growth. They provide SMBs with a we-do-it-for-you service to build their website, and begin marketing and selling online.

At Opportunity Hack, they’d like to create a directory listing of businesses, with SMS querying capability, that can periodically and automatically onboard Kolabo subscribers and offer non-subscribers the ability to register for an account. E.g. SMS “batik” to 347358 (DIREKT) and receive Kolabo listings for stores selling “batik.

If you'd like to be part of the team hacking for this idea, make sure to be present at the team formation session on the morning of the hackathon after each nonprofit has pitched their problem.
