Stir­ling firm to crowd­fund plan­ning tool pro­duc­tion

The Scotsman - - Business -

A Scot­tish en­tre­pre­neur has launched her lat­est busi­ness ven­ture, Onits, with a crowd­fund­ing re­ward cam­paign.

Cre­ated by Ni­cola Wal­ter’s Stir­ling-based firm Or­gan­i­sa­tional Ele­phant, Onits are dry-wipe, multi-use mag­netic notes for use as a plan­ning tool at home or in the work­place.

An Indiegogo crowd­fund­ing cam­paign launched last month with the aim of rais­ing £25,000 to en­able short pro­duc­tion runs of the prod­uct.

Wal­ters, a for­mer plan­ning and project lead­er­ship con- sul­tant who has worked with clients such as Royal Bank of Scot­land, was in­spired to cre­ate the prod­uct while or­gan­is­ing her wed­ding.

Wal­ters said: “I started us­ing sticky notes on a wall but they would just fall off. I wouldn’t dare open a win­dow for fear my plan would lit­er­ally fly out of it. I see Onits as the tool I al­ways wished I had!”

Her long-term goal is to cre­ate a com­mu­nity, known as The Herd, which joins peo­ple to­gether to solve or­gan­i­sa­tional prob­lems.
