We are delighted to announce the next evolution of social networks!
Check it out at www.pondera.me
Pondera is a social community for people who LOVE Personal Development. We are creating an online environment where you can find personalised content – just for you!
Rather than trawling through searches and content to find what you need, you will be matched up with ideas, content and partners that are the most beneficial to you.
The more you use Pondera, the more it will get to know what you want and need, and the more it will intelligently connect you to the right resources for you.
This is done through the power of a funky algorithm (created by Dan who is a specialist in Artificial Intelligence!)
What’s a Pondera?
Pondera is the Latin word for ‘balance or equilibrium’. Just like on Wellbeing In the City, we want to offer you the best ideas, resources and connections to balance your life.
And it gets even better!
Pondera allows you to personalise everything on the site – just for you. Cut through the clutter online and get the information and inspiration that’s right for you based on your unique interests, lifestyle and aspirations.
Unlike most social networking sites that about who you know… Pondera.me is about who you are, and what you’re interested in.
This is a true revolution!

And there are plenty more!!!
So what does this mean for Wellbeing In the City?
We are all incredibly proud of Wellbeing In the City, the work we have done, the Partners we have connected with and the amazing community we have created and engaged.
The vision of Wellbeing In the City was to create a place for people to discuss, connect and be inspired. With Pondera we believe we have truly tapped into this vision.
All the amazing articles and resources you enjoyed on Wellbeing In the City will still be available on Pondera – in fact it will be even easier to connect with the information and inspiration you need.

All the inspiring Partners who you met on Wellbeing In the city are on Pondera – and now you can connect with them more easily through their unique communities.
Plus we’ll be sharing special offers on workshops, programmes, talks and events.
Even though we only launched Pondera in beta stage (that means testing) a couple of weeks ago, we have already had a few thousand visitors and loads of activity.
So we know we are providing something that people really, really want and need. That makes us very happy and we hope you will love using it too!
What about the crowdfunding campaign?
Three months on the accelerator programme has taught us something very important. We are 100% committed to making a difference by creating an online community that matters. We love what we do and we want to make it a massive success for us – and for you!
The next couple of months will be a critical time for us. Having made such a monumental shift in our approach (and yes it is just a little bit scary!) we need to prove that it works. This is quite literally make or break for us.
We need to raise £20,000 to keep going with Pondera
Here’s where the money is going…
Basic living costs for team - 6 x £1500 = £9000
Office rent and running costs = £1000
Web hosting = £150
Business & Development systems = £276
Total = £10,426 per month
So the £20,000 campaign target is basically just enough to keep us going for 2 months.
During that 2 months we’ll be growing all the communities on Pondera as well as securing our next stage of funding, either from grant money or a private investor. But for that to happen we need to survive for the next 2 months! For that, we really need your support!!!
