Wavve is a social audio platform that gives community leaders and fans a platform to connect with one another through voice sharing. Users create "Channels" and invite others to engage around a specific topic or community through audio posts (called Talks). Talks can be shared to other social media applications (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) to encourage discussion on the Wavve app. Wavve provides community leaders such as Podcasters, radio hosts, sports fans, media sites, and more, with tools to better engage and track audience activity.
The Scholarship System is a program for students and families to learn the necessary steps to pay for college without taking out student loans. Through online webinars, an online course and live workshops at schools and conferences, The Scholarship System teaches students the process by breaking it down into 6 simple steps. This process has been tried and tested as the founder, Jocelyn Paonita Pearson, actually used it herself to get her entire college education paid for, having enough to graduate with zero student loans.

Auto-Ad places customer advertisements on their fleet of vinyl wrapped SUV's. Once they have the advertisements on the vehicle, Auto-Ad then gives it to a veteran in need. The veteran operates the SUV as his/her primary vehicle, driving it to work, to walmart, to their favorite restaurant, to the movie theater, to pick up the kids from school, etc. Auto-Ad is a revolutionary new way for companies to advertise while contributing to a charitable cause.
