Philosophy

Most "smart city" or related projects fail. This is largely caused by misinformed companies who still prioritize big data collection and large infrastructure installations over community benefit.
blossom is a response to this methodology. We prioritize lightweight, cost-effective services with positive community impact. Once the time is right, we have all of the tools necessary to grow our services with the community.
Our goal for blossom is simple: to bridge the digital divide by working together.

Spotlight

Spotlight redefines what is possible with the power of video streaming.
Any Blossom user can connect with personal or public cameras to create on-the-fly events that are viewable in our map interface. Other users can then view and interact with the event stream in a variety of ways.
Spotlight streams can be connected with other streaming services and social media platforms to give users a completely new way of interacting with local events.

History

Headshot Image - ChrisHeadshot Image - Joe
blossom was started in early 2017 by co-founders Chris Mertens (left) and Joe Gardner (right). In its initial form, blossom functioned as a universal trading post that was meant to enable true “apples-to-oranges” exchanges.
Over the past five years, this idea has evolved greatly. Our team’s drive to make a positive impact with our technology broadened our focus and has led to a rethinking of how our platform could best serve entire communities.
The result is a completely new type of service that we believe is instrumental for community growth both now and into the future.
