The aim of this group is:

  • to give members an opportunity to share their stories about building a website with Drupal for their startups
  • to create a space for those willing to learn more about Drupal and ways it can help online businesses
  • to foster a sense of entrepreneurship and, at the same time, offer technical guidance to those who may not be familiar with Drupal

Over time, it is hoped that this group will become an important part of the drupal community as more people come to learn Drupal for developing online businesses, be they ecommerce websites or social networks.

Friday5 Demo and Case Study by Michael Berman

Michael Berman Michael Berman is Founder of both Friday5, a Drupal-based crowdfunding platform for nonprofits, and Ready, a real-time location-based mobile app that brings new friends together.

Prior to founding Friday5 and Ready, Michael spent many years selling at Fortune 1000 and Fortune 500 companies. In 2010, he stumbled upon a promising little startup in Silicon Valley called Eventbrite. Michael lead Eventbrite's sales team during two years of rapid company expansion, scaling from 40 to 200+ employees, and was a part of many successes including raising 130m in venture funding.

Michael's Eventbrite experience propelled him to create a company of his own, and it manifested into Friday5, an innovative crowd-funding platform that helps take the guesswork out of finding worthy causes and making tax-deductible donations. Members who sign up at enter their credit card information, select the amount they want to donate to a nonprofit each week, and then receive a weekly email detailing which cause Friday5 has carefully curated for that week’s crowd-funded donation.

In short, Friday5 is helping change the world — one Friday at a time — and they’ve been praised in publications such as Forbes and PandoDaily. Check out the case study, Everybody Loves Friday5: The Crowdfunding Platform for Nonprofits, for some technical information on how Friday5 was designed and engineered.
