About the project Edit

CHANGE. This was the link that connected two young friends in São Paulo, who in moments of conflict and questioning decided to turn in and listen to their hearts. The answer came as a new purpose in their lives, and the will to do something for the world was the solution found. How? Bringing altruism to people and thus transforming the world through INNOVATIVE SOCIAL ACTIONS.

AltruS is a Social Technology Startup whose mission is to connect people and companies who want to help social initiatives that need help. Through the AltruS Platform, we unite communication and technology in favor of the social to transform people's lives, presenting causes to our network of Altruists and providing voice, access and help to these initiatives.

Themes

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

AltruS enables the connection between social initiatives that need to broaden their voice to people and companies who would like to help but do not have access to these initiatives.

We operate as a channel where Altruist finds causes previously certified by our team and can help with time (volunteering), donation of products or financial resources. We are creating a new way of helping causes through a collaborative platform that can work across the globe.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

The main goals of AltruS are to foster the culture of giving and volunteering, to provide a voice to the causes and to stimulate personal transformation through altruism to generate social impact.

It is a great chain of help, love and altruism. We believe that there are more people engaged in wanting to help than to omit the world; and our cause is to bring those people together with those who need them.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The AltruS Platform has full potential for expansion. We are developing the platform scalability process for certification of causes in other cities / countries.
The idea is to reach more and more people and causes and promote aid globally.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

Testimonial of Overcoming Bruno Aleixo, Founder of AltruS.
"On the first of August 2012, at the top of my fitness and professional career, I suffered a stroke. I had only a 5% chance of surviving and today I am here to thank and tell my story of happiness and overcoming. While I was in a wheelchair, between physical therapy and another, I began to think about how I could use my marketing knowledge for the benefit of others, and I began to idealize AltruS, a channel for connecting altruists and socially responsible businesses to social initiatives who demand help, using technology in favor of promoting altruism.

This is our new life project, our legacy to the world and we need you, not only to enjoy it, but also to share this idea and to be part of our network, in fact social.
"Today, the acronym AVC came to have a new meaning for me: Life Continues."

What is the business model of this project? Edit


560/5000
The AltruS Social Engagement Platform connects people and companies who want to help social initiatives with products, financial resources and time. The user finds the cause in his / her locality in several social categories and chooses the help in the cause needs panel. In addition to helping, the user tracks the impact generated with the help.

Altrus certifies causes for altruistic companies to engage their employees. We also reproduce the AltruS platform model for the company to disclose its own causes to its employees.
