Meet YourCause, Carrollton Startup Empowering Enterprise Do-Goodery

Give us the 30-second elevator pitch on your company

YourCause provides companies with CSRconnect employee engagement platform. A community that allows corporations to engage their employees in giving and volunteering programs.


Tell us about the founders, who they are, backgrounds, and why they are passionate about your company

YourCause was founded by Cornell graduate Matt Combs in 2008. He is a technology entrepreneur that has founded multiple companies and he has a passion for doing good.The perpetual challenge of “doing good” and “doing good” continues to motivate Matt. From Ithaca, NY, Matt ventured all the way to Cornell University. In an effort to avoid the normal investment banking route, he hopped into Internet consulting (Sapient) with no experience whatsoever. More than 10 years, 3 ventures, 3 children, and a wife later, Matt finally finds himself absolutely loving what he’s doing -innovating, growing, and developing YourCause into a first-class operation that helps support causes, philanthropy, and general social responsibility in ways that haven’t been done before. Perhaps he is one of the few that can truly say “I love what I do.”

See more here on why Matt is passionate about YourCause.

Do you have funding?  If so, how much?
