Business innovation through open collaboration
What is Babele?

We provide an open environment in which users:build the project strategy using a simple methodology;work together with communities of mentors and supporters;validate and develop each project in a collaborative way.
How does it works?Each project has a core-team that develops the plan, while peers and mentors can track and validate the progress done.The projects landing page is an overview of what the project is doing and how.Key information is displayed: such as the location, the development stage, the category and the model.The timeline contains posts and requests from the team, projects updates, and any kind of feedback from the community.

The step-by-step methodology contains all projects aspects: from activities to resources, channels, financial estimations, etc.A clear explanation helps the user to answer each question,going through all the key topics of a complete business model.Mentors and supporters can read the updates of each business section and give open feedback. Whenever in need, the user can create a thread to discuss any topic with the other members of the project community.
When the team is in need, can ask questions or start conversations with the community. Each thread is multi-content. Users can post text, links, upload pictures, videos, files, and presentations.Questions are grouped all in this page so that advisors can easily find all the hot topics .
