I’ve reached MVP (minimal viable product) status on ‘Go Camas!’, my first Grow Camas project designed to help improve local businesses. (I acknowledge that GoCamas and Grow Camas are very similar names 😉 ) Go Camas! is focused on helping residents connect with our restaurants, bars, and entertainment options (such as they are) here in town.
The goal for this product is to create more activity for these businesses and is the first step towards demonstrating value to them. This site also has the potential to create an incremental (an admittedly small) revenue stream to fund the next Grow Camas project.
When it goes live the site will be… very minimally viable; near all listings are missing some critical content and the overall look and feel isn’t there yet, but it’s good enough to soft launch and start soliciting feedback from business owners and potential users. This information should inform next steps in development.
