Local communities have become disconnected and we're seeing the symptoms unfold every day. Our daily interactions are turning into a "you" vs "me" situation instead of working together to figure out how "we" can solve this problem.
Our mission is to show people that while we sound different, look different, and have lived very different lives; we need, value, and want the same for our community.
TaskCause is a platform that brings people together to create habits for the purpose of supporting a shared cause.
Nonprofit organizations often struggle to reach an audience, raise money, and engage their local community. TaskCause allows nonprofits to better focus on their area of impact by taking care of their local and digital fundraising efforts.
1. Nonprofits pay TaskCause to provide software and digital marketing services to reach a new audience.
2. TaskCause raises awareness and funding for nonprofits.
3. After on-boarding, people can continue to donate, request tasks they need done, and/or volunteer to help one another to raise money for a cause.
TaskCause is a tool to:
1) Discover and support nonprofit organizations.
2) Request a task that needs to be done. Broadcast a message to people nearby that you’re willing to spend money to get something done.
3) Raise money. Everyone has a cause they want to support and money is a tool that brings that cause to life. Offer to help people as an independent contractor or as a volunteer for a nonprofit.
-We've bootstrapped TaskCause. The app can be found on the iOS App Store, Google Play Store, and on the web browser. We're continuously making improvements.
-We've met and discussed with a lot of nonprofit organizations. We've signed and continue to search for nonprofits to roll out pilot programs for Phase 1 outlined in the Executive Summary.
TaskCause provides marketing services for nonprofit organizations. We raise awareness and funding for them.
We also work with companies to decentralize their corporate giving. Instead of donating to one or two nonprofits chosen by a gatekeeper, companies can now give the voting power to their employees through TaskCause. Corporations donate money and their employees sign up to receive the funds that can be used to donate.
By decentralizing corporate giving, we're taking a page out of capitalism to solve the logistics in distribution when it comes to charity. With this model, niche community needs that deserve to get funded will get funded.
Our end goal is creating a platform that gives people habits with purpose. We're going to explore business models where we can acquire users at break even and work towards decentralization.
With your investment, we'll be able to continue software development of TaskCause and build a business around it.
Our short term goal is to scale the platform and prove the business locally in Milwaukee before trying to expand to other cities.
1. End the divide
TaskCause is a platform that's bringing people together for a shared cause. Our mission is to show people that while we're not exactly the same - we value, want, and need the same for our community.
2. Create a new and accessible way to give
Give people a new tool to discover and support local nonprofit causes. Through the convenience of a mobile app, passionate supporters can get involved in various ways.
3. Bring causes to life
Well all have a cause, a reason for why we do what we do. TaskCause makes it easier for us to support them.
TaskCause has financial statements ending February 29 2020. Our cash in hand is $281, as of May 2020. Over the three months prior, revenues averaged $0/month, cost of goods sold has averaged $0/month, and operational expenses have averaged $27,548/month.
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
You should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations together with our financial statements and the related notes and other financial information included elsewhere in this offering. Some of the information contained in this discussion and analysis, including information regarding the strategy and plans for our business, includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. You should review the "Risk Factors" section for a discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results described in or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in the following discussion and analysis.
TaskCause mobilizes Giving By Doing™ allowing nonprofit organizations to start a volunteer fundraising campaign. With TaskCause, nonprofits are providing you a new way to get involved in your community. We call it "Giving By Doing" where you donate your time to complete local tasks such as lawn mowing or furniture assembling to raise awareness and funding for nonprofit causes.
In 5 years, we envision a world where people value volunteering and being engaged in their local communities for the purpose of supporting a shared cause. A world where people feel compelled to help one another not because they want to make money but because they want to do good in the world.
Given the Company’s limited operating history, the Company cannot reliably estimate how much revenue it will receive in the future, if any.
TaskFriend Technologies Corp was incorporated in the State of Wisconsin in April 2019.
Since then, we have:
Historical Results of Operations
Our company was organized in March 2019 and has limited operations upon which prospective investors may base an evaluation of its performance.
Related Party Transaction
Refer to Question 26 of this Form C for disclosure of all related party transactions.
Liquidity & Capital Resources
To date, the Company has been financed with $40,000 in equity and $161,200 in debt.
After the conclusion of this Offering, should we hit our minimum funding target, our projected runway is 3 months before we need to raise further capital.
We plan to use the proceeds as set forth in this Form C under "Use of Funds". We don’t have any other sources of capital in the immediate future.
We will likely require additional financing in excess of the proceeds from the Offering in order to perform operations over the lifetime of the Company. We plan to raise capital in 3 months. Except as otherwise described in this Form C, we do not have additional sources of capital other than the proceeds from the offering. Because of the complexities and uncertainties in establishing a new business strategy, it is not possible to adequately project whether the proceeds of this offering will be sufficient to enable us to implement our strategy. This complexity and uncertainty will be increased if less than the maximum amount of securities offered in this offering is sold. The Company intends to raise additional capital in the future from investors. Although capital may be available for early-stage companies, there is no guarantee that the Company will receive any investments from investors.
Runway & Short/Mid Term Expenses
TaskFriend Technologies Corp cash in hand is $281, as of February 2020. Over the last three months, revenues have averaged $0/month, cost of goods sold has averaged $0/month, and operational expenses have averaged $27,548/month, for an average burn rate of $27,548 per month. Our intent is to be profitable in 24 months.
Our expenses have declined since the date of our last financials with the funding source running out for the company. The company is looking to increase development expenses spend upon completion of this fundraising round.
Our company is expecting to start monetizing in the next 6 months. We will accomplish this by selling consulting packages to nonprofit organizations to raise awareness and funding on the TaskCause app. The company does not have any other sources of capital to rely. We believe we'll need $50,000 in order to make that happen.
Six months after going to market, we hope to be generating $10,000 in monthly revenues and $50,000 in expenses. These projections cannot be guaranteed.
No, the company has no other sources of capital to reply. The company will need to generate revenue or engage in fundraising activities in the future to ensure the continuation of operations.
The Company is an early stage company incorporated on March 26, 2019. Accordingly, the Company’s operations are subject to all the risks inherent in the establishment of a new business enterprise, including potential operating losses. Any investment in the Company must be considered in light of the risks, expenses and difficulties frequently encountered by companies in an early stage of development in new and rapidly evolving markets. These risks include the Company's substantial dependence on acceptance into a highly competitive marketplace surrounded by better funded and more established companies, our need to conduct product development, and our need to expand our sales and support organizations, respond to competition, manage changing operations, develop strategic relationships, control costs and expenses, maintain and enhance our brand, expand our product and service offerings, improve function and benefits, attract, integrate, retain and motivate qualified personnel, and rely upon acceptance and growth in our targeted markets. In addition to being subject to all of the risks associated with the creation of a new business, the Company will be subject to factors affecting business generally, such as general economic conditions, increasing government regulatory activity, scarcity of environmental resources, and competition. The Company believes that the estimates prepared by them as to capital, personnel, equipment and facilities required for their operations are reasonable, but until their operations have continued for a period of time, it will be impossible to determine the accuracy of such estimates. No assurance can be given as to the ultimate success of the Company. The likelihood of the success of the Company must be considered in light of the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications and delays frequently encountered in connection with the formation of a new business.
The Company may never receive a future equity financing or elect to convert the Securities upon such future financing. In addition, the Company may never undergo a liquidity event such as a sale of the Company or an IPO. If neither the conversion of the Securities nor a liquidity event occurs, the Purchasers could be left holding the Securities in perpetuity. The Securities have numerous transfer restrictions and will likely be highly illiquid, with no secondary market on which to sell them. The Securities are not equity interests, have no ownership rights, have no rights to the Company’s assets or profits and have no voting rights or ability to direct the Company or its actions.
Our future success depends on the efforts of a small management team. The loss of services of the members of the management team may have an adverse effect on the company. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in attracting and retaining other personnel we require to successfully grow our business.
TaskFriend Technologies Corp is a new business with no operating history. Since our formation, we have not generated any revenues. Accordingly, we have no history upon which an evaluation of can be made. Our lack of operating history makes it difficult for potential investors to evaluate our TaskCause business model, our plans to enable people to raise money by helping others, our plans to make local services affordable, and our projections for future performance.
We face competition with respect to our key products that we seek to develop or commercialize in the future. In the Company's knowledge, there are currently no platforms focused on fundraising through local services. However, smaller or early stage companies may also prove to be significant competitors, particularly through collaborative arrangements with large and established companies. Accordingly, our competitors may commercialize products more rapidly or effectively than we are able to, which would adversely affect our competitive position, the likelihood that our products will achieve initial market acceptance and our ability to generate meaningful additional revenues from our products.
In order to respond to market changes, the Company’s management may from time to time make changes to the business of the Company. There are certain risks associated with such changes. As a strategic response to changes in the competitive environment, the Company may from time to time make certain pricing, service or marketing decisions or business combinations that could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition.
The Company’s business model is dependent on third party mobile distribution partners including Google and Apple. Should an event cause them to remove us from the app store our ability to grow would be significantly impaired.The Company’s technology infrastructure is dependent on third party software services including: Amazon Web Services, Android SDK, iOS SDK, MongoDB, Wordpress, GitHub, Fabric Crashlytics. The Company’s internal communication depends on third party tools including: Trello, Slack, SendGrid, Google Apps. The Company is dependent on third party social media platforms to increase exposure and brand awareness including: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, Google Plus, LinkedIn. Costs of cloud infrastructure and other third party software services could increase at an unexpected rate and make operating the business become unsustainable.
The Company relies on Amazon Web Services for hosting and other third party technology vendors such as Stripe, Braintree, Google and Paypal for payments and financial services. Any interruption in the availability of these services could have material negative impact on our ability to deliver service to users, as well as the profitability of these operations. Interruptions could occur due to both Internet outages as well as policy changes or terms violations according to these third parties. The prospect of increased regulation and/or Internet censorship may create access challenges to our users and service offerings. Our long-term vision is to extract all third party hosting requirements in order to become independently sustainable.
Our intellectual property rights, including registered trademarks, may not be sufficiently broad or otherwise may not provide us a significant competitive advantage. In addition, the steps that we have taken to maintain and protect our intellectual property may not prevent it from being challenged, invalidated, circumvented or designed-around, particularly in countries where intellectual property rights are not highly developed or protected. In some circumstances, enforcement may not be available to us because an infringer has a dominant intellectual property position or for other business reasons. Any failure by the Company to obtain or maintain intellectual property rights that convey competitive advantage, adequately protect our intellectual property or detect or prevent circumvention or unauthorized use of such property, could adversely impact our competitive position and results of operations. We also rely on nondisclosure and noncompetition agreements with vendors, consultants and other parties to protect, in part, trade secrets and other proprietary rights. There can be no assurance that these agreements will adequately protect our trade secrets and other proprietary rights and will not be breached, that we will have adequate remedies for any breach, that others will not independently develop substantially equivalent proprietary information or that third parties will not otherwise gain access to our trade secrets or other proprietary rights. As we expand our business, protecting our intellectual property will become increasingly important. The protective steps we have taken may be inadequate to deter our competitors from using our proprietary information. In order to protect or enforce our intellectual property rights, we may be required to initiate litigation against third parties, such as infringement lawsuits. Also, these third parties may assert claims against us with or without provocation. These lawsuits could be expensive, take significant time and could divert management’s attention from other business concerns. The law relating to the scope and validity of claims in the technology field in which we operate is still evolving and, consequently, intellectual property positions in our industry are generally uncertain. We cannot assure you that we will prevail in any of these potential suits or that the damages or other remedies awarded, if any, would be commercially valuable.
To protect our rights in our products and technology, we rely on a combination of copyright and trademark laws, trade secrets, confidentiality agreements with employees and third parties, and protective contractual provisions. We also rely on laws pertaining to trademarks and domain names to protect the value of our corporate brands and reputation. Despite our efforts to protect our proprietary rights, unauthorized parties may copy aspects of our products or technology, obtain and use information, marks, or technology that we regard as proprietary, or otherwise violate or infringe our intellectual property rights. In addition, it is possible that others could independently develop substantially equivalent intellectual property. If we do not effectively protect our intellectual property, or if others independently develop substantially equivalent intellectual property, our competitive position could be weakened. Effectively policing the unauthorized use of our products and technology is time-consuming and costly, and the steps taken by us may not prevent misappropriation of our technology or other proprietary assets. The efforts we have taken to protect our proprietary rights may not be sufficient or effective, and unauthorized parties may copy aspects of our products, use similar marks or domain names, or obtain and use information, marks, or technology that we regard as proprietary. We may have to litigate to enforce our intellectual property rights, to protect our trade secrets, or to determine the validity and scope of others’ proprietary rights, which are sometimes not clear or may change. Litigation can be time consuming and expensive, and the outcome can be difficult to predict.
Technology companies, including many of the Company’s competitors, frequently enter into litigation based on allegations of violations of intellectual property rights. As the Company grows, the intellectual property rights claims against it will likely increase. The plaintiffs in these actions frequently seek injunctions and substantial damages. Regardless of the scope or validity of such intellectual property rights, or the merits of any claims by potential or actual litigants, the Company may have to engage in protracted litigation. If the Company is found to infringe one or more intellectual property rights, regardless of whether it can develop non-infringing technology, it may be required to pay substantial damages or royalties to a third-party, or it may be subject to a temporary or permanent injunction prohibiting the Company from marketing or selling certain products. In certain cases, the Company may consider the desirability of entering into licensing agreements to avoid the foregoing adverse scenarios, although no assurance can be given that such licenses can be obtained on acceptable terms or that litigation will not occur. These licenses may also significantly increase the Company’s operating expenses. Regardless of the merit of particular claims, litigation may be expensive, time-consuming, disruptive to the Company’s operations and distracting to management. In recognition of these considerations, the Company may enter into arrangements to settle litigation. If one or more legal matters were resolved against the Company’s consolidated financial statements for that reporting period could be materially adversely affected. Further, such an outcome could result in significant compensatory, punitive or trebled monetary damages, disgorgement of revenue or profits, remedial corporate measures or injunctive relief against the Company that could adversely affect its financial condition and results of operations.
We collect and store sensitive data, including intellectual property, our proprietary business information and that of our customers, vendors and business partners, and personally identifiable information of our customers and employees, in our data centers and on our networks. The secure processing, maintenance and transmission of this information is critical to our operations and business strategy. Like others in our industry, we continue to face advanced and persistent attacks on our information infrastructure where we manage and store various proprietary information and sensitive/confidential data relating to our operations. These attacks may include sophisticated malware (viruses, worms, and other malicious software programs) and phishing emails that attack our products or otherwise exploit any security vulnerabilities. Additionally, sophisticated software and applications that we produce or procure from third-parties may contain defects in design or manufacture, including “bugs” and other problems that could unexpectedly interfere with the operation of the information infrastructure. Despite our security measures, our information technology and infrastructure may be vulnerable to attacks by hackers or breached due to employee error, malfeasance or other disruptions. Any such breach could compromise our networks and the information stored there could be accessed, publicly disclosed, lost or stolen. Any such access, disclosure or other loss of information could result in legal claims or proceedings, liability under laws that protect the privacy of personal information, and regulatory penalties. In addition, any such access, disclosure or other loss of information could disrupt our operations and the products and services we provide to customers, damage our reputation, and cause a loss of confidence in our products and services, which could adversely affect our revenues and competitive position.
Breaches of the Company's platform and systems may materially affect client adoption and subject the Company to significant negative reputational, legal or operational consequences. Our user privacy has never been compromised to date due to a focus on encryption and security, but 100% security cannot be guaranteed. Cyber-crimes are becoming increasingly common and aggressive which brings parallel increase in risk.
Increased IT security threats and more sophisticated cyber crime pose a potential risk to the security of our IT systems, networks, and services, as well as the conﬁdentiality, availability, and integrity of our data. If the IT systems, networks, or service providers we rely upon fail to function properly, or if we suffer a loss or disclosure of business or other sensitive information, due to any number of causes, ranging from catastrophic events to power outages to security breaches, and our business continuity plans do not effectively address these failures on a timely basis, we may suffer interruptions in our ability to manage operations and reputational, competitive and/or business harm, which may adversely affect our business operations and/or ﬁnancial condition. In addition, such events could result in unauthorized disclosure of material confidential information, and we may suffer ﬁnancial and reputational damage because of lost or misappropriated conﬁdential information belonging to us or to our partners, our employees, customers, suppliers or consumers. In any of these events, we could also be required to spend signiﬁcant ﬁnancial and other resources to remedy the damage caused by a security breach or to repair or replace networks and IT systems. The trend toward public notiﬁcations of such incidents could exacerbate the harm to our business operations or ﬁnancial condition.
We may be subject to future governmental regulations. Aspects of our business and our products may be regulated at the local, state, and federal levels. We and our products may also be subject to significant governmental regulation relating to labor conditions, safety in the workplace, healthcare and other human resource issues. The nature and scope of future legislation, regulations and programs cannot be predicted. While we anticipate that we and our products will be in compliance with all applicable governmental regulations, there still may be risks that such laws and regulations may change with respect to present or future operations. Such additional costs would increase the cost of investments and operations and decrease the demand for products and services. We and our products will be ultimately responsible for compliance with such regulations and for obtaining and maintaining all required permits and licenses. Such compliance may be time consuming and costly, and such expenses may materially affect our future ability to break even or generate profits.
Due to the volume and sensitivity of the personal information and data we manage and the nature of our products, the security features of our platform and information systems are critical. If our security measures, some of which are managed by third parties, are breached or fail, unauthorized persons may be able to obtain access to sensitive user data. If we or our third-party service providers, business partners, or third-party apps with which our users choose to share their TaskCause data were to experience a breach of systems compromising our users’ sensitive data, our brand and reputation could be adversely affected, use of our products and services could decrease, and we could be exposed to a risk of loss, litigation, and regulatory proceedings. Depending on the nature of the information compromised, in the event of a data breach or other unauthorized access to our user data, we may also have obligations to notify users about the incident and we may need to provide some form of remedy, such as a subscription to a credit monitoring service, for the individuals affected by the incident. A growing number of legislative and regulatory bodies have adopted consumer notification requirements in the event of unauthorized access to or acquisition of certain types of personal data.
