The Habitat Hack is a property-based Community Hack (i.e. an integrated community-sourced problem-solving process) that seeks to provide a viable solution on how to effectively sell residential stands to the diaspora population.
The diaspora has been losing confidence in doing business with property/estate agents in Zimbabwe; and hence they have, of late, been more skeptical about investing that 10k back home to buy a stand...
John Pocock and Company (Pvt) Ltd seeks to build back the lost confidence in the diaspora by selling them real estate using modern technology and contemporary means.
The residential stands on sale are located at a new suburb named Hopeville, along the Airport road at the Woodville Road intersection.
The stands are now nearing the selling stages. More information and terms related to the purchase of the residential stands are available from the Hopeville Project Facebook Page.
So, with the Habitat Hack we do things the cool way hey - instead of participants/team-players, etc... we engage what we call "Hackers" that will form organic but balanced groups comprising of: (1) Entrepreneurs, (2) Developers and (3) Designers; to solve the hack. So, what type of Hacker are you?
A community hack is an initiative by The TechVillage that leverages on the company’s immense knowledge base and communities to help private sector companies accelerate their research and development efforts by crowd sourcing innovation and solutions without ballooning the costs associated with such an undertaking.
The Habitat Hack is one of the many CommunityHacks coming your way soon.
