"Least developed countries (LDCs) are low-income countries confronting severe structural impediments to sustainable development. They are highly vulnerable to economic and environmental shocks and have low levels of human assets."

The Product Coalition Buy One, Give One programme

I founded The Product Coalition in 2014, to make mastery of product management globally accessible, for all.

Since then, with the community’s support and guidance, we’ve grown to nearly 500k readers on Medium, we have a Medium following of 18k and a global Slack community of 6,000+.

When I look at the analytics, I continuously notice the traffic sourced matches the world's most developed economies. I’ve decided I’d like to try to change that.

From May 2020, for every paid member who subscribes for 12 months or more, a complimentary membership of the same level will be provided to someone from one of the world's least developed countries, for free.

 

Prioritisaton

Complimentary memberships are made available by others purchasing a Polymath Pro or Polymath Lite Membership.  

Applicant Prioritisation 

  • Step 1: Applicants from Priority 1 Countries are always prioritised above applicants from Priority 2 Countries. 
  • Step 2: Applicants who identify themselves as female are prioritized, due to my personal pro-feminist stance with regards to bringing about the political, economic, cultural, personal, and social equality of women with men. 
  • Step 3: Applicants are prioritized on a first-come-first-served basis.

By applying, there is no certainty with regards to when a complimentary membership will be offered. Updates will not be provided to applicants. 

After 7 days the offer is withdrawn, and a new applicant is offered a membership.
