Alex: Beam is focused on ending homelessness. We think it’s wrong that people don’t have a place to call home, and we believe that everyone should have the chance to fulfill their potential. Through our website, homeless people can raise money for job training, work tools, travel costs, and rental deposits. Members of the public can donate and send messages of encouragement to boost their confidence. A team of Beam caseworkers then supports each homeless person into a stable job or home.
Asha: We are building the world's first on-demand business school specifically for people navigating their careers at fast-growing tech startups. This community is underserved as most solutions don't address their key pain points: lack of time, lack of guidance, and being overwhelmed by choice. We're developing a comprehensive mobile learning app tailored to their needs.
Edward: My journey began when I took a break to travel, beginning in Bangladesh, and visited over 200 social enterprises (SEs) across South Asia. Seeing firsthand their impact in slums, villages, and farms amazed me, but I also saw their lack of access to capital— inspiring me to start Givfunds.
