Galaxy Digital finds success serving nonprofits
By Jason Sandford
ASHEVILLE — Doss Church and Jim Nimblett knew they had good product to sell in the online universe of social media platforms, but in February 2011, they were struggling to find their market.
Church and Nimblett had formed Galaxy Digital two years earlier. Church’s background in advertising sales and marketing, as well as his tinkerer’s mentality, fit well with Nimblett’s expertise in building large-scale social networking sites.
Their idea was simple - find a market for a private platform that allowed any organization with a large member base to privately connect and communicate. They dubbed their platform Galaxy Social, sort of a customized version of the popular Facebook social media website.
