More than Projects
In Collaboration started in 2018 when Samantha saw a need for easier collaboration. Having seen the benefit of collaborative working first hand in her design business, Samantha started looking for new collaboration projects but hit some challenges.
Finding people with an interest in collaboration
Ensuring the quality of any potential partners
Managing and tracking the projects throughout
Listing collaborative items in a shop to reach both audiences and manage stock levels
So Samantha brought in her dad, Andy, to start In Collaboration. Having built a bespoke collaboration management tool with plans to relaunch the system and shop in the future, now In Collaboration are prioritising growth, community and benefits to all members first and foremost. Community growth will not only provide the vital support and opportunities members need, it will also allow funding, connections and reach to have the best impact for each of our members when we relaunch.
