The Gen was founded by Andrew Barrie to create a product to better serve the business ecosystem.
Our mission with The Gen is to provide community organisers with the tools they need to succeed. One aspect of this is The Gen platform, a place for organisers to home their community and give a central focus to their efforts. Invite on your members, collaborate, connect, share and succeed as a collective.
At The Gen, we want to help build the environment, find the resources, share the knowledge and experience that is needed to make this happen. Inclusion is a core value of The Gen, so everything is available to use and develop for free.
The Gen has been developed using Ruby on Rails and React. The project is a dense experience for community organisers with private and public discussion areas, event listings, file sharing and project spaces to get their members working collaboratively.
