We asked you what you wanted and you told us.
Through the Winter and into the Spring we asked Healthy Power Allies and people we thought would become Allies these questions: What do you want to give? To receive? To co-create? What do you need from us to make that possible? If we can do those things, would it be worth your time, energy, or money, to make the Alliance a success? Your enthusiastic endorsement let us know that we could pass out of the first phase of the customer development cycle.
Now Healthy Power Alliance is in the second phase of the “customer development cycle”: validation. In the second phase we need to get the basic set of offerings in place and validate our model. If you, our Allies, are truly satisfied with the website, the peer learning sessions, the connect events, and the emerging set of research projects, then you will be volunteering, donating, and even purchasing enough to allow us to grow. That will validate our model.
So, over the past month we have remade the website, set up a few new services, set up our newsletter and automated welcome emails, launched our Slack chat space (you should get an invite soon if you have not already), put new resources in the Resource Library, and generally worked on improving our core offerings. Yet, we still have lots of work to do.
More resources. More services. Coming quickly.
For the next month, please keep checking the website. We will be adding more resources, more services. You will be getting emails telling you about new things on offer. If our grant application goes through, we will be having a conference in the Autumn, and we will certainly tell you as soon as the date is scheduled.
