AS THE mother of five active children, Felicity Dougherty knows how out of hand the family schedule can get.
So when Canvas Coworking Space Toowoomba launched the inaugural Festival of Audacious Ideas, she knew exactly what kind of project to pitch.
She teamed up with a small group of programmers and aspiring entrepreneurs, and the group managed to bring the project from pitch to serious business plan in 48 hours.
The result was Our Village, an app designed to take the stress out of family life.
Ms Dougherty said the new app was all about helping busy families schedule their tasks and chores, keep track of where family members are using GPS and allow each person to check off their list.
