“The plight of the unbanked in the US’s poorest regions is a modern-day scandal in the world’s richest nation. Southern Bancorp is one bank seeking to address the problem. The bank has been working with marketing technology firm Mighty, offering data analysis on the impact of the 5,000-plus banks in the US. The aim is to increase awareness about how deposits support community investments and to point consumers to banks that align with their values.”
MIghty co-founder Megan Hryndza was quoted in Huffington Post along with other SOCAP scholarship company founders on what it takes to build a social impact business: “Focus on equipping people to take inspiration from your cause and make it their own.”
Mighty is excited to have been named 1 of 125 social enterprises (1 of 48 in the US) accepted into the 2017 startup cohort awarded scholarships to SOCAP 17 in recognition of commitment to building businesses that will create a positive impact for communities. Mighty team will participate in a pre-SOCAP workshop for impact startup awardees on October 10, prior to attending SOCAP October 11-13 in San Francisco.
