In 2003, I was one of six pre-med students selected nationwide by the University of Maryland School of Medicine to intern in a medical research program to develop a vaccine against Malaria in Mali, West Africa. As a naive 20 year old college student who dreamed of changing the world, that was the greatest honor of my life and a humbling lesson on Giving Back.
Nine years later and a MBA in hand, I quit a six figure job and along with Josh and John co-founded Miigle, a platform for discovering and fostering innovative projects based on interests. Our goal was to empower the public to help not just innovators raising money, but also those needing emotional, practical, and intellectual support, especially in impoverished regions.
We launched Miigle in 2014 at The Launch Festival in San Francisco, and were told by the judges, Silicon Valley Investors, that we would never succeed because we weren’t part of the “Boys’ Club”. Watch the video
We didn’t care about Boy Clubs. We knew that there are millions of people working hard every day to make this world a better place and we didn’t want to sit on the sidelines.
“There are millions of people working hard every day to make this world a better place and we didn’t want to sit on the sidelines.”
Miigle+ Products is a commitment to our mission to empower all of us to help the people and companies who are making a positive difference towards humans, animals, and nature.
