Amplifying Community Solutions

Prontopia Founder and CEO Shannon Kenny launched Prontopia in April of 2018 as a solution to the increasing gap in availability of human services. The Prontopia team tested its platform optimizations based on the premise that together we are greater than the sum of our parts. This innovative approach generated a tech-enabled dynamic system of sustainable networks.

Prontopia works within local communities to cultivate labor market growth and global local economic vitality. We believe large scale social change is accomplished through face-to-face interactions. Human relatedness is the essence of our platform's value. Advancing the services economy is essential for economic revitalization that supports workers who feel autonomous, personally invested, and connected to their work.
