The Problem (Harvard Research Findings | Trevor Haynes, May 2018):
Research by the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences concluded that 92% of Millennials are developing feelings of anxiety, social inadequacies, insecurities, obesity, depression, and other negative thoughts and emotions. Why? It is because they don’t have enough face-to-face and emotional conversations with people. This generation is the most connected in terms of quantity, yet the loneliest in the quality of relationships. They go to social media to voice their concerns and try to get attention, but they are further disappointed to find out that other people are leading exciting lives without them. This problem will continue to grow as technology becomes increasingly addicting.
The Solution: KemNu App
KemNu is the next-generation social networking platform that enables people to easily meet new people and expand their social circle over exciting activities. It’s a simple way to pick an activity, send invites to people, and schedule a time & place. The groups built on KemNu will automatically expire after a week, and encourages users to try new activities with new people. When groups of people meet, they will receive 1 KemNu Coin. The goal is to collect KemNu Coins and redeem them at local businesses. The more you hang out, the more perks you will earn. (5 KemNu Coins = 1 Free Caramel Frappuccino at Starbucks). KemNu uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to personalize activities, improve user experience, and grow local businesses.
Overall, Vishwa and Viraj want you to find the right group to enjoy socializing and growing your emotional intelligence.
