Democratizing Opportunity

We are a two-sided market network that uses technology, finance, and the power of the crowd to enable striving Students of low socioeconomic backgrounds to obtain the financial and community support they need by connecting them with their biggest supporters online. We provide online supporters the transparency, impact, and personal connection they seek. Like a living ecosystem, our social platform provides an online community for all parties to connect, transact, and interact.

“Success is not an accident, success is actually a choice.”

The Problem

Only 16% of low income college Students graduate

On top of the normal stressors college Students face, many Students of low socioeconomic backgrounds also experience financial distress, lack of mentorship, and little ongoing support. Not having a sufficient amount of funds often leads to Students withdrawing. This combined with the lack of mentorship and support ensures Students are less likely to complete their education.


The Problem

Only 25% of online-only first-time contributors are retained for more than a year 

Often times Online Supporters make a one time contribution to a campaign and never get to see where their money goes or how it made an impact. Online Supporters are frustrated with the existing giving options and are left with no personal connection to whoever they contributed to.
