Hi everyone,

My name is Eddie.
I'm from Orange County, CA.

I have a great idea for a not-for-profit company; to develop a cross-platform mobile app that'll empower the blind and the visually impaired but I need some assistance. I would like to meet/chat with those experienced/familiar with writing up the business plan/proposal, hardware and software development, analytics, obtaining federal grants, filing patents, legal counsel, ad/marketing, assistance with npo filing, etc.

I MUST see this through.
Any help is appreciated.

Thank you,
Eddie




"Over 285 million people in the world are visually impaired, of whom 39 million are blind and 246 million have moderate to severe visual impairment (WHO, 2011). It is predicted that without extra interventions, these numbers will rise to 75 million blind and 200 million visually impaired by the year 2020 (WHO, 2010)."

"Every minute a child somewhere in the world goes blind (World Health Organization, 2009)."

"Approximately 9.1 million people with vision loss in the U.S. have a family income of less than $35,000, 2.9 million have a family income between $35,000 and $49,999, 3.1 million have a family income between $50,000 and $74,999, 1.6 million have a family income between $75,000 and $99,999 and 2.9 million have a family income of $100,000 or more.

Approximately 8.2 million Americans with vision loss are poor or near poor."
