Working with Social Impact
Companies & Founders

We are working with primarily healthcare & education companies to help accelerate growth by working at cost and investing later + offering coaching services for any founder along the way.

Acceleration program

Preparing you for
growth and investment

We support your start up with growth guidance based on our years of experience as well as development and design resources at costs.

We can provide you singular resources during your time of need saving you from having to hire, or a full team to work with you end to end to develop your product. We do this at a rate that only covers our costs and in return we ask for an option to invest in your organization during your next round at a discounted rate. Although we have offices in New York and San Francisco, our development center is based in CEE, meaning our resources are super talented but typically less costly than those found in the rest of EU or US.

Founder Coaching

To change the world,
you have to find your purpose

The best leaders in today's world are the ones who are authentic. To others, but especially to themselves. They know their strengths but are not afraid to show their vulnerability. And that is a lifelong journey. But you don't have to face it's difficult junctions alone.

Reasoning

Why are we doing this

Jan and Ann have known each other for years, always wanted to work together and finally the right time came but both wanted it to be about more than generating profit and building products that benefit the bottom line. We spent most of our time discussing not whether we could work together to build U+, but rather how we could make the work matter. Ann after years of working in corporations and helping others build their businesses, now wanted to find a way to contribute in a different way by supporting building impactful products in areas where we have a strong interest. Jan wanted to build his business in a way that he could balance creating great international products with also building great products that have a big impact in areas outside of the corporate revenue engine.

So we talked.

We figured out quickly that we both share an interest and passion in the areas of Mental Health and Education. Mental health because the statistics are staggering - the increase in depression, addiction and other mental illnesses affecting people from all social strata in all geographic regions is growing exponentially with very little being done to deal with the root causes and provide help. Education, in our view, is the single differentiator to elevating people from poverty across the world, to enable voter eligibility and creating a more stable foundation for the disenfranchised population.

We wanted to give something back. We have a pool of incredibly talented resources working on big projects that of course generate a profit for us. Amazingly, many of these people share our thoughts and so we came up with the idea of a special offering to organizations and teams working within these areas where we support by offering our resources with the idea of helping more companies that matter getting to the next funding round.

For us this is just the start – we want to continue our work in this area by working with Social Impact funds, eventually starting our own and getting involved in any way we can in this growing community.
