Wilum was represented by three of its founding members (Laurence, Sylvain and Olivier) in the Innovation Village for the second edition of the PitchMyChurch event held on February 3, 2017 at the Collège des Bernardins (Paris).
Beyond the absolutely fairytale place, the high quality of the organization and the motivation of the participants, we would like to welcome here the soundness of this initiative.
It is a real movement launched by the association Eglise & Innovation Numérique: the gathering of a new entrepreneurship for the Church, that of the start-up and the business of new technologies.
A momentum of creativity and pertinence that could ultimately imagine presenting with a single voice to the Church a “catalog” of powerful tools at the service of the Church, the believers and the Faith.
At the heart of PitchMyChurch, there is a key word: “meeting”.
Meeting people, ideas, companies, projects, Faith and energies.
What we would like for the future is a real synergy between us all. We can all help one another, and we will all be stronger.
And then it would be a pity to see the inventiveness and audacity of the participants of PitchMyChurch2 competed by copies.
We have imagined some examples of partnerships for Wilum (and it should be the same for each of the participants):
“La Quête” offers churches a source of funding in the form of gifts, just as Wilum does by offering to light candles in the same churches.
The “Ephatta” community is present throughout the world (hosts and travelers). They could identify churches around the world and suggest that they contact Wilum. Similarly, Wilum could reveal the Ephatta accommodations close to its partner churches
Hozana.org and Wilum could carry out joint actions (for example, by offering to light candles by communities of prayers)
Wilum could relay and organize some events on “Bouge ton église“, which could reciprocally help to publicize Wilum
“Credofunding” and Wilum could set up operations to support certain churches by lighting candles
Acolyte 2.0 could “sound” the partner sites and thus benefit from a communication relay.
The association “5 Pains 2 Poissons” shows us the direction in defining its mission: “to regroup within the Catholic Church to work more efficiently, to pool resources and skills in order to benefit from quality services”.
Our projects are all complementary, coherent, and we are part of the same community.
So it would be nice to be together!
