...................................................................................................................

Everyday at the stroke of midnight, we are given 86,400 seconds. 1,440 minutes to squeeze out every drop of enjoyment and adventure humanly possible. We are given an opportunity to thrive rather than just be. 

What if there was an app that helped you discover what you want to accomplish in your life and how to go about achieving it?

Well, we couldn't find one, so we're making one

It all started a couple of years ago when Jason (fearless leader and co-founder) realized - after a couple of cold ones - that most people had great, ambitious, silly and fun life goals, and yet, no one was really tracking their lists. Almost right away, with his business partner and buddy Bart, Bucketlist was born. 

All over the world, Bucketlist helps thousands of people discover bucket list ideas, and accomplish their life ambitions.

It's simple, The Bucketlist App will help you live. 

But first things first, we need the funds to finish the bucket list app so you can have all the motivational and inspirational features of Bucketlist on your mobile device. 

The app is the next inevitable step, and most requested feature from the over 175,000 happy and inspired members.

The Bucketlist app will help make your dreams a reality.

The Bucketlist app will be the place to create your bucket list and have it readily available on your mobile device. This will allow you to live a more fulfilled and awesome life... In fact, even science agrees - a recent study showed that people who write down their goals, and share them with friends to be more accountable are over 33% MORE successful than people that just write them down (source). 

If we can help a third of the Bucketlist app users to achieve their goals, we here at Bucketlist HQ will be very, very happy.

We're sick of hearing:

  • “I don’t have the time”
  • “I don’t have the resources”
  • “I just don’t know what to do”

People have dreams they want to accomplish, but sometimes routine gets in the way, and we forget about all those amazing things we wanted to do. The app will keep your dreams and goals at the forefront of your mind. It will enable people to mark goals as complete in real-time. Imagine completing bungee jumping from your bucket list... Mid-jump (just hold on to your phone tight)! 

Check off your accomplishments in real time and share them with the world.
As. 
They.
Happen.

The mobile app will give you the most bucket list value. Think about it... You're usually not in front of your computer when you are knocking things off your bucket list, but chances are good that you’ll have your cell phone with you. 

Plus, people get ideas for their bucket list's everywhere; over dinner with friends, at the beach - on the toilet - basically anywhere, anytime. With the app, you'll be able to add to your bucket list when inspiration strikes.

The app will help in three major - and life changing - ways:

1. Discover what you want to do

2. Resources

3. Inspire, Support and Motivate

Discover

Discovering amazing bucket list ideas to add to your list, things you never dreamed of before. We'll provide more inspiring and local information than people have ever had before - 2,700,000 goals have already been added to Bucketlist, just  waiting for you to find them. 

Using your location services, or the search function, browse through thousands of bucket list worthy ideas available exclusively to the Bucket List app users. Set up your profile with your likes and interests, and we'll suggests goals you'll find interesting. 

Planning a trip to New York? We'll give you access to the most popular items to do in the areaand how others went about achieving them. 

Resources

With over 400,000 success stories and growing every day, the Bucketlist App is the perfect place to learn how you can achieve your life goals. This isn't just your everyday list maker/reminder app. This app has the power to help you achieve your bucket list goals!

Plus, we're going to start having contests exclusively for our members to win (for free) their bucket list goals! That's right, we're going to help you crush your bucket list

Inspire, Support and Motivate

Finally, the app is a fantastic community of support and motivation. Learn from others who have already accomplished similar goals on their bucket list, and share your tips with the community. 

Don't just take my word for it, check out what Apolline had to say about us:

How the app will be developed

The app is already in pre-developing phase! We're currently figuring out the best and most valuable features through our web interface and user feedback. The app will reflect the best and greatest ideas and features from Bucketlist. The funds will be used to finish the final development of the Beta App.

Jason Lindstrom - Development Team Lead 
Jason is an entrepreneur with two successful start-ups under his belt. After struggling with a 'normal' career Jason quickly realized he wasn't cut out for regular employment. He decided it would be best to forge his own entrepreneurial path with one of his good university friends Bart (see below). Bucketlist represent everything Jason is passionate about; it's about enabling people to live their dreams, laughing lots, making mistakes and occasionally doing something sensational. It's also about finding inspiration in others. 

Jason initially developed his client side coding skills when Jason and Bart started their web development business while in university. (Back in those days Flash was the latest craze :-)) Since then he has successfully led the development of 200+ projects including e-commerce applications, intranets, mobile sites and apps using a variety of technologies including Drupal, Wordpress, Django, PHP, MySQL, JQuery, JavaScript, HTML5, Python as well as others.

Bart Wisniowski - Development Project Manager and QA Lead

Originally hailing from Europe, Bart came to North America in 1987 as a young boy and some would say he probably had a bucket list in his crib when he was born. He quickly got around to learning English and decided to live the American dream. With opportunity abound he got a job delivering papers, went to school and eventually wrapped up a basic 4 year university degree in about 6.5 years. There was just too much stuff for Bart to see and do to rush anything. 

Bart earned a bachelor degree in Management Information Systems from Simon Fraser University and a project management certification at the University of British Columbia. Since then he has produced over 100+ web projects and recently has created a multi-user web building platform (PHP & MySQL application) for the financial services industry which has been used by over 3,500+ clients to date.

Bart met Jason (see above) working a groundskeeping position, they pulled weeds for 8 hours a day and had a lot of time on their hands to talk, and eventually decided to go into business together. With a few successful businesses under their belt, Bart and Jason came across the bucket list concept and fell in love with it. Seriously, what's more awesome than helping people fulfill their life's dreams!

Risks and challenges

The main risk & challenge we anticipate is building a product that actually works and is used by people on a regular basis. We want the app to be a regularly used tool on their mobile devices and that brings value and enhances the lives of those that have it on an on-going basis.

In order to achieve this, we have:
-followed best practices in building an app of this nature.
-are working with high quality and talented developers and product managers.
-have created a user test group where we put our ideas to the test on an ongoing basis.

We hope that this becomes an app you show your family, friends and acquaintances as that "Cool Must Have" thing on your phone.
