Fundable Startup Spotlight

Fundable

 

YourCauseOrMine is an online community where people can meet, connect, and interact while supporting a cause, pursuing an interest, or promoting a cause-related event. YourCauseOrMine matches people based on their cause interests and provides a platform for individuals or groups to meet, connect, and volunteer together at local events.

About The Founders

The two co-founders, a husband and wife team, have spent most of their adult lives mentoring teenagers, at-risk youth and volunteering as coaches and team parents for youth sports. It was their common interest in live local music that brought them to a small, eclectic local artist spot where they met in 2000. The vibe of the lounge was one that attracted people with very specific interests and it was those interests that initially brought them together.

They hope to provide a platform that is the catalyst for successful, meaningful relationships for others.
