WE ARE YOUR

Alumni Whisperers

Your alumni want to help. So we’ve finally made it simple.

For you and them.

WE’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS.

Alumni apathy is real.

Why are 90% of alumni not engaging or donating regularly to their alma mater – leaving most universities woefully underfunded?

App overload

App overload.

Alumni use an average of 50 apps. When is the last time they asked you for another platform?

Make an impact first

Impact first.

Alumni want to help and be a part of a greater cause. They just don’t remember yours.

Protect their time and privacy

No time.

We are all busy and protective of our time and privacy. It’s easier to not engage than to say “no”.

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.

IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE HARD

We turn all alumni into mentors.

We make your alumni feel awesome by sending them AI-matched mentorship opportunities via email. No app, spam, or loss of privacy here.

Students have a lot of questions

Students ask.

No intimidating directories. Ask via webform, Slack, Email, SMS.

Protopia's AI finds the best alumni to help

Our AI matches.

Our AI-enabled technology finds + asks the best, available alumni to help.

It's easy for expert alumni to help with Protopia

Alumni answer.

They safely choose if, when, and how to help. Until we’ve got answers.

What stood out for us with Protopia’s solution is that it is platform-agnostic and all of our alumni are automatically included as advisers.

THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S ALUMNI ENGAGEMENT PLATFORM

Simple for alumni.

Mission #1? Never make alumni feel bad because they are busy, anxious about their privacy, or don’t want to sign up for “another thing”.

No app.

Nothing new to sign up for.

Alumni only use email to answer questions or update their data.

No spam.

No superfluous emails.

Only questions matched to their unique background and expertise.

No guilt.

No “breaking the chain”.

Confidently pass knowing that we’ll ask the next-best alum.

With Protopia it's not only easy to ``just ask`` for advice, but our busy alumni can choose to help and mentor or simply pass the baton to the next-best Matador - all without another app or login.
