Kick Back Korporation
Who are you?
My name is Pete Frost. When I was deciding what I wanted to do for a career I knew I wanted to help people. For the past 6 years I have been working in jobs that allowed me to serve people in various ways. I have always found working with people very rewarding. I want other people to find that reward and that is why I am working on an app that connects people to opportunities for service.
What are you working on?
I am currently working on creating the Kick Back Korporation App. The app will allow people to more easily search for, find, and connect to volunteer service opportunities. Simply put, it is the Tinder of Volunteering.
How did you start to establish your idea?
Having worked in various non-profits for over 10 years I have consistently seen a need to simplify the volunteering process. I believe that if people can more simply connect to ideas, volunteering will become more ‘mainstream’ and ‘cool.’ There are a lot of people that want to volunteer, they just don’t know how.
What about entrepreneurship interests you?
I really like the thought of building something from the ground up. I like the challenge of having to think about many factors that go into a start-up. Then, being able to problem solve to progress forward.
Why did you come to Sustainable Startups? What has been your greatest take away from being in the Sustainable Startup cohort course?
I came to Sustainable Startups to get more exposure to entrepreneurship and to connect with like-minded individuals. I don’t have experience starting a business and wanted to get professional direction and advice.
The greatest take away would be the MOKR and the Weekly Report process. I made more progress when I wrote down my goals and broke it down week to week with what I had to do to accomplish those goals.
