Startup Funds People Rather Than Businesses
A New York based company is helping pair together young, ambitious creatives with financial backers.
Pave, a startup company less than a week old, is looking to turn the investment business on its head.
Pave is a new business community that wants to unlock talent and inspire progress by connecting financially accomplished backers directly with the change-makers: ambitious and driven young people.
Rather than connect investors with new business plans and models, Pave thinks the next step in creating visionary opportunities is going to be ‘People behind people, doing work that matters.’
Pave builds their community with two types of people: prospects and backers. The prospects are young people striving to do work that matters and that inspires them. They’re ambitious and creative, but lack the finances and guidance to realize their dreams. The backers are established individuals who want to invest not only their money, but also their experience and wisdom in these young people to help them succeed.
