Projects: form idea to execution

Weconomics supports innovation projects that contribute to the organization of sustainable prosperity. An important element is to understand real Digital Transformation and the smart use of organizational technology (such as blockchain), so that we can become more productive, get out of those offices and use the surplus time for sustainability. Blockchain provides more democracy, transparency, less power with existing institutions and secure data traffic. We can set up a community (shared information and transaction network) for your industry/domain, based on the Weconomics organization model, infrastructure and the transition program.seed_3

Do it yourself, outsourcing or a hybrid form?
Weconomics has three variants for projects:

  1. Do it yourself (internal label): You can choose to carry out a project yourself (under your own label), where you hire the knowledge and experience of and give assignments to a Weconomics partner (project leader and / or fellow).
  2. Hybride (mixed label): we can also choose to start a project together from the beginning under Weconomics mixed label (you are the client and you appoint someone as a project leader who works together with a Weconomics partner who is trained as fellow).
  3. Outsourcing (external label): you can also work entirely under Weconomics label, and follow the phasing as mentioned below (you are the client, a Weconomics partner delivers both project leader and fellow).

With both option 2 and 3 you use a proven methodology, which reduces the lead time and costs. In all cases you make your own arrangements about, for example, time and rate with the executor (Weconomics partner: project leader and fellow). You have to take into account that costs are associated with the deployment of Weconomics partners. These are independent entrepreneurs.

Goal of Weconomics projects
The goal of Weconomics projects is to develop a community with you. This is a shared transaction network with many providers and many customers (n: n community). With this network you can profile, select, buy and pay almost completely digitally and at minimal transaction costs. The transactions are stored in a shared and distributed ledger which makes the network transparent and allows transactions to be carried out with fewer intermediaries. Privacy and data management can also be better guaranteed and society become less dependent on tech companies and central governments. The underlying infrastructure for Weconomics communities is basically the same for every community. The differences are mainly in the focus (target and target group-oriented communication: branding). The agreements are organized in a Data Common, the differences in their own application (for example DAPP, decentralized application).

Do you have an idea for a project?
Are you a pioneer and do you have an idea to organize supply and demand smarter within your industry, for example by applying Blockchain Organizing? We help you set up and guide your project to realize this. Weconomics helps you with the realization of your idea. With Weconomics you get access to our knowledge center, an extensive network and the right tools to expertly turn your idea into a successful community. Our partners are experienced in guiding enterprising people from idea to execution.

Weconomics has been working from the beginning on the basis of an ecosystem with stakeholders that can preferably also finance parts of the investment (in hours or money). Often we start with a project exploration to find out what the best plan is to start. In general, we distinguish the following project phases (in brackets is an estimate of the budget you have to take into account):

  1. Start: exploration, choose project leader, fellow, quick scan, prepare kick-off (1-5 K)
  2. Awareness: what is our perspective: from new thinking to a pilot idea (5-10K)
  3. Proof of Concept: prepare use case, design sprints, technically working demo (10-20K)
  4. Feasibility: what problems do we solve with blockchain organizing? (20-50K)
  5. Open innovation: innovate, MVP, Design Thinking with stakeholders (50-100k)
  6. Design&architecture: Blockchain by Design, choose technology/platform (100-250K)
  7. Development: develop a working and user friendly application (100-500K)
  8. Implementation: implement a working application
  9. Exploitation: shared information & transaction network (Blockchain As A Service)
  10. End: official closing of project and transfer to community manager

Our project support usually starts with an introduction in Weconomics and Blockchain Organizing.

Next steps
Overall, we distinguish the following steps in Weconomics projects:

  1. You have an idea and would like to hear the opinion of an expert.
  2. You fill in this form: for Weconomics project general (Dutch) or blockchain project (Dutch) or blockchain project (English) ideas and send it to us.
  3. One of our consultants evaluates your answers and will contact you.
  4. If we cannot add any value to your idea/project we will tell you, or advise other experts. You don’t have to pay anything.
  5. If we proceed and work together on your project and you want to continue, you pay 390 euro*  for an analyses, advise and presentation of one of our consultants.
* If you are not a Weconomics partner yet, you become one first (€ 100, once).
