Purpose over Profit
Resolve Networks was founded by a U.S. Marine Corps and Silicon Valley veteran in February 2018 on the belief that people, intrinsically, desire to do good and make a difference in the world. The company tested this idea on paper before bootstrapping the create of a gaming platform that makes it possible for players to do good and earn money for causes they care about. Moreover, the platform will help nonprofits overcome two universal challenges: engaging volunteers and increasing donations.
As people spend more and more time on their smartphones, game titles on the Resolve Networks platform offer the choice of doing good with that time while also having fun and making a social impact. Doing good deeds releases hormones that contribute to elevated mood and overall well being. The company is raising money in order to bring volunteers, part-time “reservists” (equal to two days per month + 2 weeks per year), and full-time staff together to make this idea a reality.
“I am thankful for the goodness within all of the people who have helped prove on paper to date what we aim to prove in this campaign on a larger scale with these Apps. I believe that purpose can outrank profit as a motive in both business and our lives. Rather than following an orthodox path to using accredited investors and building full game titles to bring this idea to life, Resolve Networks believes that everyday people who value purpose represent the only fitting path to develop this beautiful idea.” – Mario Blandini, Founder & CEO, Resolve Networks Inc.
