Amalgamating "audio" and "transcription," Audtra is the first, social audio/transcription and analytics platform (patent-pending no. 62/456,604). Calculating thought percentage by mood, recurrence, character, and location, the app reinvents journaling, with No-Knowledge privacy and no trolling ability from concept.
Audio record experiences with playback, transcription, analytics, and commenting/liking. Audtra's next update (patent-pending no. 62/534,421) will empower anyone (including the marginalized, illiterate, and ill) to monetize micro-podcasts and content from anywhere.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
The social entrepreneurship venture gives free licenses to professors and scientific researchers in Alzheimer's, mental illness, developmental disability, drug, and cognitive studies. Historically, the B-corp has engaged in profit sharing with NYC's under-resourced until age 25, and will be announcing a new initiative empowering under-resourced groups in STEM.
In April 2017, Audtra pivoted from Dream Entries, a one-woman project started 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, 25
FOUNDER, CHAIR, AND CEO
van Dam's responsibilities are strategy, design, copy, product management, web dev, 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 the CHSPE, earning a diploma equivalent at the first eligible age of 16, meaning she could have been a baccalaureate holder by 20. Named on six patent applications, the 2x 2016 World Maker Faire blue ribbon winner was cited in an Oxford scientific research book by multi-disciplinary luminary, Dr. Domhoff.
The social entrepreneur has served as an AR-listed Annual 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.
