Activating Blue Devils

Hundreds of thousands of Duke University alumni and supporters are seamlessly served personalized donor experiences.

With a community as large and diverse as ours, we needed a truly different and innovative solution to connect our alumni and students. Protopia’s AI has made networking simple, seamless, and scalable and allowed us to engage so many new people, and all without another app to sign up for or use for our already busy alumni.

Donor activation in the classroom at Michigan

Michigan’s Center for Entrepreneurship uses Protopia’s AI in the classroom to teach students how to network and deliver personalized engagement opportunities to mentors and supporters.

We chose Protopia because of its ability to connect people through the tools they already use, without another platform to learn, without another login. Protopia’s quick implementation process, flexibility, and integration capabilities allowed us to tailor their solution to meet all of our needs.

We all remember being students and having many questions about succeeding at Duke and beyond - great to have this tool for asking and answering questions among the community of students and the knowledge base present with alumni. Super easy to use and respond to.

I was so pleased that someone seeking support and guidance for a path I have already taken was able to utilize this program to find me. It was very fulfilling to be able to be helpful.

I loved speaking with the prospective student and sharing my experience at Emory. She was very curious about the arts and I was happy to share the benefit of pursuing a BA compared to a BFA.

What an easy way to connect with other Dukies! Just getting started is often the hardest thing to do in a new place, so we talked about ways she can engage as a volunteer, art lover and alum. We'll continue to stay in touch and will meet in person as soon as we resume in-person events.

Providing mentorship and support to students is a fantastic way to give back to NCSU! I'm so glad that Ask the Pack has allowed me to provide such support. Go pack!
Pitt Alum

My Ask Pitt Alumni experience was amazing. It provides a great way to give back. I responded that I wanted to help and we set up a half hour meeting. The process was super simple and easy.

It was a rewarding experience being able to (hopefully) help out a fellow Bobcat. I would have loved having an opportunity to ask questions similar to Liv's when I was in school, and it would have been great to get responses from multiple alumni.

The full power of the Pack

NC State University uses Protopia to activate the 250,000+ strong Wolfpack for digital volunteering and mentorship. Automated and frictionless.

Community is at the core of what the Wolfpack is all about. Our partnership with Protopia provides the entire Pack opportunities for networking and mentoring.

Too many apps, not enough engagement?

Protopia is not another app in your donor's busy lives. Instead, we complement your existing tools by encouraging them to engage further and update their data in your platform(s).

Our alumni, our students, and our team are app’d out. We chose Protopia because we need a simple and scalable tool to let our alumni give back without throwing another platform at them.
