CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

The social entrepreneurship venture gives free licenses to scientific researchers in Alzheimer's, mental illness, developmental disability, and drug studies. Historically, the B-corp has given time and engaged in profit sharing with NYC's under-resourced, and will be launching a new initiative empowering under-resourced groups in STEM. It Pledged 1% in August 2016 and signed the April 2017/Cyber Monday Startups for Net Neutrality letters.

HISTORY

In April 2017, Audtra pivoted from DreamEntries, a one-woman project conceived July 2015 as a SEO-friendly site to solve spending 33% of life asleep with no efficient journaling method. Dormant until the February 2016 Pre-Seed self-funded by B. van Dam, the iOS/Android alpha released early 2016, receiving organizational charter in April 2016, now amended to Audtra. The first, social audio/transcription platform shipped June 2016 in the App/Play Store, with regular iterations.

B. van Dam, 26
FOUNDER, CHAIR, AND CEO

van Dam's responsibilities are strategy, design, copy, PM, web, legal, accounting, operating a lean startup, and CSR. The 99% equity holder (1% employee option pool) has self-funded the venture and remained a full-time, unpaid employee from concept.

Designing with HTML, CSS, PHP, and W3C validation since 13, she tested "better than adequate" on a state exam, earning a diploma equivalent at the first eligible age of 16, meaning she could have been a baccalaureate holder by 20. Named on multiple patent applications, the 2x global blue ribbon winner (2016) was cited in an Oxford scientific research book by a multi-disciplinary luminary. 

The social entrepreneur has served as an AR-listed donor and jr. committee member to personal causes since 23. Self-raised since 15, she has a 10x analytical advantage and cross-posts founder satire as the @AudtraGod.

Thank you to patent lawyer, Howard Eichenblatt, for re-writing 80% of the NP utility draft in a week and on generous terms. Without Mr. Eichenblatt, Audtra would have lost a competitive advantage and product defensibility in another buy-clone-or-bury case study against oligopolies. Co-founder of the satirical Patent Trolls: The Card Game, he's an entrepreneur’s patent lawyer.
