Friendbase has been granted a scholarship of $20 000 to attend the US accelerator Newchip, an opportunity valued at $400k+, it starts on July 9th and runs until December 2020. With over 500 applicants for every cohort, the Friendbase team are very excited to be a part of the program. The aim of the program is to help raise up to $1M before the end of the program which runs for six months.
Co-founded in 2014 by Deborah and Donnie Lygonis, the Friendbase platform is on a mission to create a fun and friendly place online for young teenagers using AI and behavioral science. With mental unhealth on the rise among young people, it has never been more important to create positive forces online.
