Response is building a digital procurement officer for the humanitarian sector. Our web application helps procurement teams automate the purchasing of lifesaving aid so humanitarian organizations can focus on their mission and not on paperwork. We've received over $50,000 in non-dilutive funding to date and are launching our web app with an exclusive group of nonprofits in Summer 2019.

Tap2Row is one of the only rowing games that exists. Since its fall 2014 release, the game has accrued nearly 20,000 downloads from players in over 70 countries.
