Businesses hate working with universities because universities do not know what they are doing.
“Imagine the logistics of connecting interested students to the right projects,” Wesemann says. “It requires a kickoff call, scheduling, and a lot of administrative overview. There are all kinds of other types of programs like this throughout any university. I’m constantly rubbing shoulders with other leaders at institutions with similar programs, yet they do it on spreadsheets and emails. Kado has a nice system that will more or less automate and push all the overhead logistics onto the parties—the students and the companies. It helps connect the dots.”
Kado helps schools eliminate massive of emails between the school, the student, and the business partner. We are providing the schools a better CRM tool to manage their capstone projects and internship programs.
We have signed major partnerships with fortune 500 companies to take stock of their overall approach to skills and enduring capabilities as part of their workforce architecture.

Kado was founded by two immigrant entrepreneurs who experienced the career navigation space in Utah.
Gladymir Philippe: Co-Founder and Chief Technology Engineer.
Computer Science degree - Utah Business 20 in Their 20s (2021)
Siya Mali: Co-Founder
He worked at quip and Lawvu
We bootstrapped Kado to this point and we are ready for funding to improve our platform.
First, we want to democratize access to wealth with our first raise by giving students the opportunity to not only to better tell their story of the skills they are gaining through college experience - be part of Kado with a minimum investment of $100 that will grow to thousands of dollars before graduating college
Parents can also invest in Kado while their kids are in elementary or high school.
Anyone can invest to help businesses discover the skills that immigrant college students have.
Universities and companies in Colorado and Utah will have full access to Kado in Q4 while we are improving the platform to give access to more schools and companies in other states.
We have partnered with Edtech startups for students to take STEM courses on Kado and boost their skills. Our management platform will be ready to use next year - our signed clients will be able to assign tasks to students on Kado.
We believe we can have an exit of over $1bn in 2028 or get acquired by Linkedin or fortune 500 companies.
