The smartest engagement platform on the planet.


Our AI makes connecting super easy for your students, for your alumni, and for you.




Easy for students


Let them engage for advice and networking via the tools they already use: email, Slack, SMS, even your existing portal.

We coach them on why, when, and how to ask for help.

Easy for alumni


We share requests with only the most-relevant and available alumni and mentors matched by our AI algorithms.

They can choose IF, WHEN, and HOW to help. Or guilt-free pass.

Easy for you


Protopia augments the tools you already use, and runs FOR you (not because of you).

Your team has 24/7 access to real-time engagement insights and alerts.


Protopia has made it easy for us to build and connect a global community of future and current NC State entrepreneurs.

We've built Protopia around the "The Golden Rule": Treat others like you want to be treated.

#1 Keep it simple.

It's never been easier to create a new tool, a new process, more software. That "silver bullet" that will finally get your community to engage.

We did not reinvent the wheel. Instead, we make it easy for students, alumni and mentors to connect through the tools they actually use: Email, Slack, SMS, or your existing website.

So that they can focus on building relationships.


#2 Make it relevant.

Helping is easy and rewarding when you know you can make an impact.

Our technology carefully analyzes who is asking, what's being asked, and who may be the most-relevant, willing, and available expert in the community right now to assist.

To create a "fertile soil" for a connection and a potential mentoring relationship.


#3 Give them control.

You know what doesn't feel good? Being asked to help when you're busy. When it's not a good time. When it's something you can't assist with.

With Protopia your alumni and mentors control if, when, and how to engage. Guilt-free. Without "another login." In fact, we love it when they say "no" so that we can simply engage the next expert in the queue.

Engagement on their terms.


Solution Smart


We'll make your existing tools better.

Our job is to create serendipity for meaningful, professional relationships between your students, alumni, and mentors. And to make your life easier.

You'll bring the community (we can integrate with most platforms - or you can use ours), and we'll create magic together.

That's what makes our hearts beat faster.


With Protopia connecting our entrepreneurs to the right advisors, investors, and corporate executives in our extensive network is a breeze. And I have great insights into how my community is engaging.
