Terms of Use

What is Sahoja?

Sahoja is Delaware corporation based in Atlanta, GA. Sahoja means “Stronger Together” and we are building an online community that will demonstrate we are stronger when we are working together. We are building an online social network, marketplace that will impact the world in a positive way and is based on giving. The Sahoja proposition is two-fold. First, our user members will be rewarded in the form of “points”, much like airline or credit card points, for positive engagement in the digital community. Second, Sahoja will curate and present nonprofits, charities, NGOs, and socially responsible product vendors working towards making our world a better place to live.

Audience of Testers

We have invited specific individuals and groups to test the Sahoja online social network and the Sahoja proposition as it is developed by the team. Currently, we are in the beginning phase of our development, a period of product we will call “pre-alpha”. This testing period, after several iterations, will be “upgraded” to alpha, then beta. During these testing phases, Sahoja will be closed to the public, meaning only individuals who are invited may participate in the testing. At a point in the future, we will make Sahoja “LIVE” and publicly available.  In agreeing to test here, you agree to test this “pre-alpha and alpha” stages.

Stages of Testing

We are asking our limited pre-alpha, alpha, and beta audiences to test certain specific functionalities of Sahoja. We will provide very specific instructions. We will also ask for your raw, unfiltered feedback, so that we can know what you love, like, dislike, really dislike, and really love as Sahoja develops its ideas. We will be asking you to follow the instructions we give and provide your views within certain time frames, usually about a week. We will make this process as simple as possible. We appreciate your time is valuable.

Rewards for Testing

In return, we will reward all our testers in a similar manner in which future members of Sahoja will be rewarded: with points! Again, these “points” are similar to, though not exactly like, those of various airlines, credit cards, and other loyalty programs. Our early testers will assist in developing the points system and be given points for testing and helping build Sahoja.
