Episode 15: Reyn Aubrey - PocketChange
I believe that entrepreneurs solve problems but traditionally, we’ve been using entrepreneurship to solve pain points not problems.
Reyn Aubrey is the founder and CEO of PocketChange. PocketChange is a technology that targets the moment when someone is really genuinely motivated to take action and remove all the barriers to that action. PocketChange helps people support causes on social media in a whole new way.
What Reyn and team are creating is a button that sits on Facebook right next to like, comment, and share that lights up whenever users see a post about a cause. It could be literally anything from an article in the New York Times about poverty, a picture posted about someones house that was destroyed in a hurricane, a video about climate change - whatever it is, their technology analyzes the post content and determines what specific cause that post is talking about, then instantly matches the user with the single most impactful charity tackling that problem.
