33needs.com is a web application that connects entrepreneurs solving our world's biggest needs to micro-investments from the public. Anyone can invest in ideas and companies that are saving the world.
Quote from 33needs CEO Josh Tetrick: "Here's the bottom-line: none of this (TC coverage, NYT coverage for our web application) would have happened without the skills and guidance that Tony provided us.. He literally built the site from the very first line of code into something that all of us can be so proud of. We can't imagine what kind of mess we'd be in without him and 29fx."
