What Does It Mean To Be Part Of Labs?
If you're interested in partnering with FaithTech or volunteering on a labs project, you'll find all you need know right here!
A Labs partner is anyone who has experienced or seen a problem in their community, city, ministry, mission, charity or church. You have a desire to see tech leveraged by a volunteer team to solve this problem.
You may represent a Church, Mission Organisation, Charity, or you may be a person with a passion to see a particular problem solved in Jesus’ name.
FaithTech labs projects aim to solve problems for:
- Marginalized Communities.
- The Local Church.
- The spreading of the Gospel.
Many problems touch more than one of these, but we are laser focused on these three areas.
We have a range of opportunities for problem pitches:
- Through our regular local community meetups.
- Through direct reach-outs to our Global Labs community.
- Through our local and Global Labs events such as Hackathons and Innovation Sprints.
Through any of these, we have provide opportunities for projects to be pitched to the FaithTech community.
FaithTech Labs are volunteer-led teams, so we can’t give guarantees that any specific problem or pitch will be picked up.
However, we have a growing community of people who are passionate to steward their skills to glorify God, so the opportunity is great.
Innovation is a great learning opportunity!
We want to see more successful projects, leveraging technology for God’s glory. As part of our Labs Program, we have coaching, pitch exemplars, and engagement opportunities that will help us partner well together, as you walk with the project team through the process of building a solution.
As we build out our tools and labs materials in 2021, we’ll be testing them with our communities, partners and labs volunteers.
Our most successful projects have great engagement from our Partners. FaithTech starts in community, and that’s the model we place around our project teams. We want to see relationships built, people learning together, and amazing products built alongside this.
Alongside relationship and community, partners are key in helping teams get through a thorough discovery process, understanding the problem and the way your organisation or community might be able to implement solutions.
