JellyChip is a social network that wants to connect people and change lives. Users earn points by answering surveys and completing activities on the site to buy a gift on the JellyChip Store for free. Companies pay for the gifts by creating surveys and when a user purchases a gift, JellyChip sends the relevant funds to our partner charitable organisations.
In an age when more people want to see major social problems solved, it makes sense to design doing social good into the very basis of a social network. The result is JellyChip.
JellyChip was founded in June 2014 by two friends James Downing and Eric Chang. A coffee catch up over new ideas of social good led to a partnership for starting a new company that would become JellyChip. James showed Eric the plans and designs for an early JellyChip and both agreed to quit their jobs to pursue the JellyChip project after seeing its potential.James graduated with an MBA from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and is an avid video gamer. Eric graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Melbourne and is an avid horticulturalist.
JellyChip is unique because it looks to connect people in ways that have never been done before. Social networking has been revolutionized by Facebook, but JellyChip allows people to connect with each other and make a true difference in the world. They do this by earning points on the site which they can then spend on free charitable gifts on our Store. In short, it is a social network that transforms users’ networking time into a points-based currency, to be spent on charitable gifts. Whilst Facebook mines user data to serve their ads, which makes Facebook money, they generate revenue to pay for the gifts through surveys that our users can opt to do. A portion of their profits goes to fully paying for the charitable gifts that their users buy.
They are building awesome features that their users love so that they invite their friends to JellyChip and change more lives in the process. They hope to grow like any social network – fast.They generate revenue through surveys that users and companies can create that target their user base. Users earn points for answering surveys which they can then spend on charitable gifts.
