*Start of Section A–Brief Synopsis About Project Starfish:*
Project Starfish America aims to offer a new type of opportunity; a socio-economic platform for talented individuals who are blind or have other disabilities, seeking to learn, be productive, make money, raise awareness and be employable. Participants in Project Starfish work virtually from home via phone, Internet, and Skype, and can be based anywhere in the United States , and perhaps anywhere in the world. By joining, you can be part of a talent pool of business consultants.
Project Starfish offers a variety of hands on opportunities, allowing its consultants to learn. They not only discover how to focus on their best skills as well as learn additional ones, but they also learn to work together as a collaborative team, giving them a feeling of working in an office. As you start to sharpen your skills and business perspective, you are pooled into what is known as a shared service. In order to define this concept, think about a number of skilled resources which can be shared among multiple businesses. In this way, one consultant can provide marketing strategy to a business, another helps to design and set up their website and a third can develop the business’s social media presence. The same talent can work with multiple businesses as a freelancer generating multiple income. It is up to the businesses to determine what kind of talent they need, and money is paid to the individual directly for the part time hours worked and in advance! Project Starfish does not accept any money, and is privately funded by the Founders, Subhashish (better known as Subs , pronounced Soobs or Subes or Suubs) and Soumita Acharya , a husband-wife team based out of Boston , Massachusetts.
As you may know, small businesses and startups are America’s biggest employer, and they either are not aware or cannot afford the right resources. Businesses work and collaborate with the talented blind via the Project Starfish platform, and can get the work done at an affordable cost because the same resource can be used by multiple companies. This is exactly what small businesses need because cash flow is their biggest challenge. This combination creates a win-win camaraderie between blind people and businesses!
