Hello there! Thank you so much for visiting our website.
The Power of 1 is an accelerator geared for individuals who have ideas which can definitely change the world. We started because of our founder Marc Zilka who believed in the power of individuals to think of great ideas that can transform the world and make it a better place.
Marc had a best friend, Ryan, who had this idea of creating an app that could transform how people communicated with each other. Since Ryan did not have funding to create this app, Marc helped him out in sourcing support and getting funding. He approached people and organizations and was able to raise a lot of money in the process. At the same time, Marc was also able to get the support of experts in the field who trained and mentored Ryan in order for him to create and perfect the app. After a year, Ryan was able to finalize the app and launch it. It created a lot of buzz and was pilot tested in Africa. Currently, it is changing how people in the continent communicate with each other, even without telecom infrastructures and the Internet.
Coming from a high of raising money and getting the support of experts, Marc then created this platform in order to help more people, more individuals armed with great ideas. He wanted to connect them with funders and organizations who can help them make sure that their ideas will become reality.
Since 2012, Marc and his partners have been able to help more than a thousand individuals who are now focused in making the world a better place. Be one of them too. Just contact us and pitch your ideas to us. Who knows, you just might be the next big thing.
