Description

Our founder, Andre Hughes, was born and raised on the south-side of Chicago. After a successful career as a Global Managing Partner at Accenture, he retired in 2010. Inspired to give back to his neighborhood and others like it, he knew an effective infrastructure would be necessary to connect people needing help to the best resources and people anywhere. So he and his wife invested in building a technology platform that allows anybody, anywhere to meet as though they were in the same room.

With their support, we built a unique, web-based collaboration platform. Its innovative design makes it affordable to nonprofits and useable by anyone with Internet access. True to our founder’s vision, our solution supplements the traditional in-person delivery model by virtually connecting nonprofits and the people they serve using online communities, chat, and interactive live events where 1000+ people can attend at once.

Now, less than 1 year after the initial launch date, our team is already working on version_2.0 that embeds our core web-based capabilities into a white-labeled mobile app. Imagine how a branded mobile app leveraging the nonprofit's name would accelerate adoption and usage!

We believe version_2.0 will exponentially change the number and frequency of interactions between nonprofits and the people they serve, further increasing the probability of success and the desired change.

With this fundraising campaign, we will be looking to you to help us make this vision a reality for 3-7 nonprofit organizations. Certainly, any gift is deeply appreciated, however, we are looking for leaders who can gift at one of the following giving levels:

$1000 - Connector
$2500 - Innovator
$5000 - Amplifier
$10,000 - Visionary
$25,000 - Angel

The Problem

Nonprofits lack the funding and resources to connect with the people they serve as often as they would like to affect change.
Likewise, if the funds and resources existed, people lack the ability to physically attend ongoing trainings and counseling sessions as they lack transportation, time, etc.

Our Solution

Connect and communicate via live or recorded interactive events and online community chat to share best practices, experiences, and know-how with anyone, anywhere as often as necessary.

Additionally, leverage the preferred mode of communications: mobile technology.
