Who we are
Hearken means to listen.
We founded our company on the recognition that curiosity and listening are the basis of innovation and better business.
Unlike many companies that create technology, we are not venture-capital funded. Our startup capital came from angel investors and strategic investors who care about our mission and impact in the world.
We subsist through revenue from our customers and creating valuable programs that attract philanthropic support. We consider ourselves a “zebra company” one that prioritizes purpose over profit, collaboration over competition, and believe mission and money can align.
