    Quick question:
    Do you struggle with social isolation or loneliness at work? Would you like more opportunities to build your professional network while working remotely?

    A group of business students is developing a unique web app aimed at reducing isolation by allowing you to connect with co-workers and a broader professional network, spontaneously, and through engaging mentoring and learning experiences. It is called Campfire.

    Great website,

    But, who are the group of students, another anonymous group wishing to get our private data?

    Love your non existent privacy policy, but if you dont tell us who you are, how can we trust you

    Not saying its not good, but secretive student business is not a promising start, come out of the back ground and tell us about yourselfs

    Thanks so much for your feedback. Perhaps we should share a little more about who we are on our website. Sorry that you don't think the privacy policy is sufficient. I will try to amend. Thanks again for your thoughts.

    We are a team of five students from Swinburne University, studying a Lean Startup Springboard subject. Our names are Sarah, Alan, Jakob, Lachlan, and Hammad.

    Do you have some ideas about what you would like to know about us?

    Thanks again!
    Sarah

    Sarah, if you are studying a lean Startup Springboard subject, surely they are teaching you what you need to tell prospective customers / users about yourself, just what you have give is 200% more then we knew, but surely they have taught you more about customer engagement.

    Thanks, Bert,
    We do learn about customer engagement in other units. I guess there are only 12 weeks of content and they are concentrating on teaching us the Lean Startup methodology.
    I appreciate your feedback. Thank you.

    If you are involved with the project and it's ongoing, don't use third person. Be upfront about who you are. Also rethink your "Do you struggle with loneliness" blurb. It sounds like a dating app. Instead of focusing on negatives, focus on increasing happiness, connectiveness, etc. and then tell me why you are different from all the other apps that connects work groups out there.

    Good Luck!!

    I agree with El Arish, Sarah. I am wondering if this could also extend to the great looking landing page of your website.
    Instead of 'Reducing isolation at home for remote workers' it could sound more inviting and pro-active as 'Building connections whilst working remotely' or something like that.
    Just a thought. Good luck!
    Marisa :)

    And the great positive I can already see, is that we have given you some feedback, and you have already acted upon it, 100 marks just for that alone.
