Venture: Stronger Together Now
Seed Lab Cohort: 2021/2022
Impact location: Inland Empire, California
Organization Structure: Nonprofit
IDEA & ENTERPRISE OVERVIEW:
Improve connectedness among communities in the Inland Empire and facilitate access to information and resources in an efficient and impactful way.
Extreme division and disconnect amongst communities is an unfortunate characteristic in the Inland Empire region of California. The broad landscape creates unintentional divide, multiplied by the secular nature of each city’s focus on its own needs thus leading to grounds for operating in silos and profoundly impacting our communities, especially our youth and elders.
Stronger Together Now aims to bridge this gap by bringing solutions to and in the communities directly through events and mobile community-hubs that collectively serve, connect and train individuals.
Kai King is the co-founder of Stronger Together Now, alongside Janelle Guerrero. A professional basket player with an international career, Kai graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in Psychology who has been actively advocating for systemic changes in his community and the Inland Empire.
Together with his associate Janelle Guerrero, Kai has been in the front lines at protests and local meetings assessing the needs of their community and developing creative and applicable solutions to their challenges.
