“If you build it they will come.” This memorable quote comes from the iconic movie Field of Dreams and is the guiding theme throughout the movie. But what if, instead of just building it, you ask the input of others and incorporate their ideas and suggestions into the construction?
This concept powered by Popularise, a crowdsourcing platform focused on local development, allows builders to submit projects to an open forum of community members who, in turn, can propose ideas, support the project or provide general feedback.
Active in Washington DC, Baltimore, Seattle and Oklahoma City, Popularise is gaining momentum by allowing builders to gauge popular demand and giving community members a say in what is being constructed in their fair city. [Source: Popularise]
