The Steak...

Why Tribalize?

Few things in history have impacted human interaction as much as social media. It plugged into an inherent characteristic of people: we are social creatures. Since the very beginning, humanity gathered into groups for companionship, cooperation, and safety. At its core, social media is just the newest way for people to connect and communicate.

But recent events have revealed several shortcomings in our current social media environment. There are increased concerns over privacy, security, and freedom of expression. Also, some people are intentionally disrupting social media through simple trolling or more hostile actions such as harassment and doxing.  

The reason for this is simple: although we are social creatures, we are not universally social. We are selectively social. We have different a level of interaction with each group we belong to. Tribalize has created a collaboration tool and social media service that supports this very important aspect of human interactions. 

What is Tribalize?

Tribalize is a better way for groups to communicate.  

This new group collaboration and social media service can be accessed from your smartphone right now and soon from your desktop, laptop or tablet. Download the latest beta release of our app right now at www.tribalize.com

How is Tribalize different?   

1.) Tribalize was designed from the ground up to be private first. Key members of our development team have been building secure connected web systems for more than 20 years and, more recently, mobile systems for nearly 10 years. 

2.) Our team has worked on the concept, design and implementation of Tribalize for more than three years. We recognized the need for this type of service long before the need became front-page news or a trending hashtag.  

3.) Our beta product is ready to download now. While we are continuing to add features to the platform, we have already developed and deployed our production backend and database systems. Sign-Up at Tribalize and download the Android or iOS version of our app right now

4.) Our business model is simple. The basic versions of our products are supported by ads. Let’s face it, some people are either not able or not willing to spend money to participate in social media and we need a way to keep the lights on. We, however, give you the option to upgrade to premium services so that you NEVER SEE ADS. And you are completely removed from any data collection.

What's next for Tribalize?

We have come to Kickstarter to expand our core tribe of tribe leaders. People who want a better way to coordinate and collaborate with their tribes. We are looking for Firestarters who know the value of a tribe and want to make their tribes more efficient and effective. Individuals with a passion for bringing people together to make the world a better place.  

Join us, back our project, and become a Firestarter (Backer). As a Firestarter, you can engage with our founders, developers, and other like-minded individuals. Discuss tips and techniques for managing and motivating your tribes. Help us develop and improve Tribalize to become an even better tool to encourage the safe, free, orderly exchange of information and ideas between tribe members.

We already have plans for additional features including: 

  • Video 
  • Pinning posts 
  • Calendar function 
  • Image galleries 

Because we've already delivered our first Beta product, with the successful completion of our KickStarter campaign, we will deliver these features by December 2018.  

If we reach our primary goal, we have a second stretch goal of $140,000. If we reach our stretch goal, we plan to add the following features:

  • Web based version of Tribalize – With this version you can access all your content from a web browser just like you can on the mobile app. 
  • Polls and surveys - Ask questions and tally the results. Use them to coordinate activities, make decisions, or just have fun. 
  • Sub-tribes - Sub-tribes are tribes within tribes. These will be particularly valuable to organizations with teams or departments.

Help us spread the word about Tribalize. Tell other tribe leaders or potential tribe leaders how they can energize and excite their members, improve communications, promote creativity, and start changing the world! 

Let’s make this moment a movement! 

Back our project, become a Firestarter! 

Light a fire … and Gather Your Tribe.

Risks and challenges

The risks for the completion of the tasks outlined are very low for the following reasons:

- We have already completed the development of our first Beta release.
- We have already worked out and implemented the big items, including technology, data storage, distribution, and security.
- The Tribalize app has already been accepted by both the Apple Store and the Google Play Store.
- The project is backed by a company that has been successfully operating for more than 17 years developing projects using the same technology we are using for Tribalize.

With your Kickstarter backing, there is virtually no chance that we will not have a completed production release of our app with an accompanying website.

The only long-term risk is that we don't find enough tribe leaders who share our vision to get traction and become significant company in the group collaboration / social media world.
