UPDEED – A Networking Platform for Change Makers - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes. Our Co-founder Satish, an alum of IIT K and IIM Bangalore has been a techie and tech entrepreneur. Founder Sachin Shukla has also had previous experience with Tech projects and startups. Setting up a tech team wasn’t challenging.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Ideation. As we had to always stick to the basics of human values to facilitate their journey to create and amplify impact. For many, it would help them disembark and explore positive aspects of life by appreciating and helping others.

The concept of this app is unique and the first of its kind. Imagining and visualizing the flow and ensuring users perceive it, in the same way, was challenging as well as exciting. We’re proud of what we have created and how it's creating a lasting impact on individuals and society.

UPDEED is a unique platform that connects individuals, communities, and organizations that help others. The main vision of UPDEED is to amplify the social impact of such entities. What started as a fun project of spreading goodness with technology, UPDEED today is a positive space on the internet and is a dominant networking platform that connects change-makers around the globe. It is open to individuals, communities, and/or organizations who can join, support, and work for a common cause whose ultimate objective is multi-dimensional welfare and serving humanity. Founded by Sachin Shukla, this app uses technology to make this world a better place. After all, It is often said that the smallest action of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

LinkedIn: It connects people beautifully to help them grow.

How long have you been working on this app?

The concept took many years of thought process and experience. However, developing the app took 8 months, from ideation to launch, of both iOS and Android versions.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We had three words in mind when we started working on UPDEED- Appreciation, Gratitude, and Technology; and the objective was to create scalable impact worldwide.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

The existing solutions in the market focus on journalism; whereas UPDEED provides voice and tools for networking to every individual, community, and organization. Anyone having an inclination to lead a meaningful life by contributing back to society through appreciation or networking with changemakers can start their journey.

We wanted to create a space that caters to the positive aspects of individuals, communities, and organizations. Other than two aspects, work-life and general social life, all of us have a third aspect of life where we want to create an impact and lead a meaningful life. Where we want to appreciate and encourage changemakers and look forward to joining hands and supporting them in their mission. When we think about that aspect, UPDEED is the only platform that would come into our minds. We call it a positive space on the Internet.

It's an Ecosystem that would help you seek resources for sustained impact creation. You’ll find how people and organizations are helping others, connect with them, build your profile, become an influencer, and much more in a mainstream and fun way.

UPDEED is also a one-stop solution for Organization’s CSR and ESG activities.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We’ve been constantly upgrading our app. In future, you’ll see more ways of connecting with changemakers. More direct ways of fundraising, volunteer connect, and CSR activities. For-profit impact creators can find and connect with their audience.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

For individuals: Download the app and get started. We would love to hear your feedback For Organizations: You may contact us at [email protected] for any of your requirements related to CSR and ESG activities from project management, reporting, compliance to the marketing. We have a verified global network of individuals and NGOs who help on grass root level.
