AdWallet: Enables advertisers to reward consumers directly for their attention & data.

AdWallet is a platform that enables brands and their customers to finally have a direct, transparent and mutually beneficial relationship with each other.

Ascent AeroSystems: Setting the new global standard for mission-critical unmanned aerial systems

With a simple cylindrical configuration that reduces the airframe structure to an absolute minimum, Ascent’s MADE IN THE USA coaxial drones are simply a better platform for mission-critical applications.

CommissaryClub: The exclusive social network for people with a criminal history (Social Impact, investors from Founder Fund, Y Combinator, Quake Capital)

We launched 70 Million Jobs four years ago with the goal of helping the formerly incarcerated find employment. By any measure, we’ve had great success, helping thousands of deserving men and women land jobs. Along the way, our community of 11M+ told us that in addition to employment help, they were hungry to be part of a larger community. We knew that building a digital destination where they could meet, share advice, and serve as role models and inspiration, should be our next priority. In response, we built Commissary Club.
