Foundspot is a form of energy within us all. An energy that guides us to help each other. Foundspot wants to help improve the lives of the greatest number of people possible

Foundspot is a platform that contacts someone that has lost something valuable with the person that has found it and would like to return it.

Behind Foundspot are all those who have ever felt impotence or helplessness when their personal or valuable belongings have been lost, and for those who have found other people’s belongings and would like to return them and have not known how. Behind Foundspot are all those who feel that things can be done otherwise. Also according to our research there is a strong case towards missing pets which are in desperate need to find their owners and vice-versa where we strongly believe our mission is heading.
The founders of Foundspot are 4 friends (David, José, Manu y Nacho) who have gathered that energy within us to primarily focus on it and expand it as much as possible with all our heart. We have been inspired by many so thank you to all and everyone supporting us.

Our sources of revenue are donations contributed by users and advertising revenues. With this income we pay all our bills, wages, system maintenance and improvement projects and dissemination of the platform

30% of the profits that are generated will be donated entirely to local and international social projects to support people with basic needs, improving the environment where we live.

Our Mission:

Foundspot is a free service so that people can retrieve objects or stray pets, so quick and easy
It’s use helps to collect funds for social projects that help many people improve their quality of life or, simple, to live.

Our Vision:

We envision a world where Foundspot is very present in all of us and is a worldwide reference linking people to retrieve their pets and lost properties. We can see a lot of people smiling because we have been able to help them in some way in the different social projects in which Foundspot is involved.

Our Values:

1. Our goal is to help people and we got it with the altruistic/unselfish collaboration of many. The system is fed back.

2. Social welfare as a means and as an end: collaboration in different local and   international social projects

 3. Consistency with our principles: exemplary and transparent management complying with all legal environmental requirements

We have been many years mulling over how we could fulfill a dream: Having an exciting job with which to live comfortably and at the same time, our work would serve to directly or indirectly help people in need …
And come to think … what if we work in an ONG? What if we allocate part of the wages of current work to social projects we collaborate? ….

… Let’s develop our own project and we allocate part of the profits to social projects that we created! …

… And that’s how Foundspot was discovered there in 2013. We feel, and we have been shaping up today, although it was in late 2015, after joining our savings when we gave the biggest boost.

FAQs

 Solve your doubts

No, this isn’t possible. Foundspot doesn’t publish the details of any users in order to avoid people claiming what isn’t theirs. All notification are internally filtered by our systems to notify people who have either lost or found items.

The notifications are sent in real time. As soon as both parties inform us of their lost and found item a notification will be sent to them with their corresponding contact details.

Of course. We offer an option which allows you to submit only basic information so Foundspot can get in touch with you: all that’s needed is your name and email.

We also offer the option of registration through Facebook, Google+ or other types of log ins.

In the email which notifies the user of their found item, there is an authentication option in which they can confirm that the item is theirs. As a result, the item will automatically be removed from the search list. Also, if you find your item or pet on your own or the same but in case you get to reach the owner of the item or pet you found, you can remove it from the platform.

Equally with the donations as the profits, they will be used to enhance the Foundspot site and for other social work projects. That’s why 30% of the benefits represent the total funds and will go to the following:

50% to national projects. Half of which will go to social works projects in one country in order to enable local action.

50% to international projects. This will go to countries where humanitarian aid is at its greatest and where they are most likely to benefit from the funds.

We are talking about benefits instead of revenues because first of all we have to ensure the maintaining of the platform and its solvency and stability.
We have calculated 30% in order to ensure that we are still able to continue spreading the Foundspot message all over the world/ In the near future we hope to increase this percentage to try and help even more people.
