About Prem

After having spent the last ten years of my life working in finance, volunteering for Peace Corps, and getting an MBA education, I am fully prepared for the work of an entrepreneur with an aim towards social impact. My experience in development, financial management, and business strategy are all essential to the success of a new organization.

Namely, my organization is GiveWave. GiveWave is a social media-based application established as a hub to connect donors with charities. Its mission is to provide charities with more donations from better aligned donors. We will harness the capabilities of social media, currently through Facebook, to create a more personalized experience for donors to find, research, and donate to charities. I am currently working with a developer on this project. His focus is on application development while I focus on the financial forecast, business plan, and legal obligations to get our business off the ground.

We would love to add a web designer and/or programmer to our team to push GiveWave forward. This person would have experience in program design, ideally working with social media applications. Most importantly, any new team member would have to believe in our mission, and have a passion for helping underserved populations. After all, GiveWave is about helping good people do good things.

For more information on GiveWave (business strategy, revenue potential, etc.) or about joining our team, please feel free to contact me.
