For those of you just getting wind of PF through SB, we recommend you check out our alpha site up at www.projectfranchise.org where you can read all about how we got started and what we're planning on doing. And for those of you who have followed us to Front Office Fans, we wanted to give you a quick update on what's cooking...
- We've gotten thousands of early sign ups and are moving ahead with the Project plan, using the first vote selection of a minor league baseball team as we work to line up a franchise
- We've got one team lined up and are hoping to have a couple of other options on the table soon, so we can turn it over to a community vote, with the aim to take ownership in early 2010 and take the field for our innagural season next April
- We have built out the sponsor pitch and gotten access to a whole lot of new, relevant digital media so the opportunity to start making money from sponsorships is finally here and we are actively selling the concept to interested brands and agencies
- We've got the full version of the proper Project Franchise website in development and are planning to roll it out by the end of October or in early November.
Stay tuned for more updates, and of course, if you have any ideas or suggestions let us know anytime by commenting here or sending an email to team[at]projectfranchise.org.
