Aarti: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Our purpose is to build a world where people with disabilities belong. To create a world where everyone, no matter who they are, can shine brightly. We firmly believe that all of us have special gifts and talents. They can have a gift of hand, a gift of heart, or a gift of head. People with disabilities are sometimes not seen or heard, or they are unfairly thought of as less than others. We want them to be seen, heard, and valued for the incredible people they are.
Ishveen: Glad to be here, Spiffy—thanks for inviting me! We know that sports has the power to unite people and nations; but how many realize that sponsorship is the financial backbone of sports helping athletes, teams, and events to exist? We are using technology, data, and innovation to make the sponsorship industry more efficient and effective. In the 60-billion-dollar sponsorship industry, the non-top 5% of athletes and properties often have a tougher time finding sponsorship. We focus our attention on them.
Alifya: Now, imagine you have this big idea that you know can change the world. You also have the motivation to spend hours, months, years working on the idea to make it come to life. What you don't have is the pocket money to get started. Your parents already gave you what they had, but you still need a little extra money to just get started. Who do you ask? Do you go on Shark Tank? What are your other options? The problem is...not everyone has access to the people or companies that can give you the seed capital to get started on their idea. Closed Round is changing that. We think everyone should have a fair shot at accessing the money from 'sharks' or venture capital investors!
