It’s a community site supporting small businesses impacted by COVID-19.
Christopher Butlin, Burton Johnsey
Seeing how small businesses and the families they support were quickly impacted due to COVID-19. Their call outs for support were very unique to each business.
What it does
The site aggregates user submitted small businesses and displays the best way people can support them; including where they need to go and do it.
How I built it
I built the initial front end and some friends helped develop a stronger data structure for displaying businesses.
Challenges I ran into
Working to get exposure. I’m donating my own $, but I’m not sure it will be enough.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We built this site in a weekend.
What I learned
People are willing to move fast when the project has a good heart.
What's next for TipDetroit
It’s not complex, but I would like to open source what we built so other cities and communities can copy and repeat.
