Better community. Better life.
About the Project
LocalPort was birthed out of a realization that local communities have an abundance of human and material resources that remains largely untapped... currently dormant due to limitations of available cash.
With a live proof-of-concept we've demonstrated the ability to "hack a local economy" and unlock latent resources and potential. We discovered a little-known mechanism for activating and transmuting untapped potential turning it into local progress.
These early trials demonstrated our ability to affect a measurable impact on local economic indicators through the introduction of an analog (offline) token or coupon.
BOTTOM LINE: localHERO™ enables communities to do more with what they already have, enabling them to:
- increase community engagement, volunteerism, and trade;
- enhance individual purchasing power; and
- drive new high-value transactions to local business.
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
