Remy Binias was our intern for 12 months. He shares here with us his personal experience of his year in India and working with Minsh.
A case study on how the EPFL MoT Alumni Association launched its dedicated app and succeeded in improving its alumni relations.
The association board was looking for a solution to better engage with the alumni, but at the same time, was wary of using yet another communication channel. Who could blame them?
But at the same time, social media and emailing were not pulling it off. The board truly believed in their alumni community and knew how beneficial it could be to all alumni, should they be able to improve engagement and increase their numbers.
It is also important to mention how both Tilo Peters and Olivier Courvoisier, the Executive Director and Program Coordinator respectively, played an important role too. They knew very well that the alumni were key to the reputation and success of their program and were eager to support the association in obtaining the right tools to strengthen the community.
The app has proven to be an effective platform for strengthening ties with the Alumni Association as well as facilitating communication amongst the alumni. These are key success factors for both the MoT EMBA program as well as the MoT Alumni Association.
Community managers need their own community - and their own communication tool too.
In October 2014, I was very lucky to find myself in San Francisco, attending one of the most interesting conferences out there for community managers: FeverBee SPRINT. Unfortunately, in November 2015, when the second american edition took place, work kept me from going there.
But still. I really wanted to contribute in some way and be able to take part, even from afar.
Techstars is building a global ecosystem to help entrepreneurs and they have helped over 600 startups so far.
Seriously, when John Hill, the Network Catalyst at Techstars told me they would use Minsh for FounderCon, their annual Founder conference, my first thought was: “Oh man. This is going to be a disaster.”
This is a very nice illustration of how you can get more out of your Minsh App, thanks to its RESTful API.
Have you ever wondered how teams in crazy fast car races communicate? I did too.
In only 3 weeks, they’ve had an awesome response. The number of sign ups and people posting content on the app is mind-blowing. How did they achieve such a feat?
Yesterday, I went to the THINK NEXT event: the demo day of the summer batch of Microsoft Ventures India. It was hosted in a big hotel in the center of Bangalore and packed with several hundreds attendees. Most of them investors, mentors and entrepreneurs.
I got featured on YourStory, that’s a lovely article, thank you Tanvi!
