NEW YORK, July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Goaloop, the Goal Market, a one-stop solution for goal achievement, launches today. Goaloop connects all productivity by the common denominator of goals. It is a free, online platform, open to everyone.
"A global network to help people achieve their goals is a powerful way to connect with one another. We all have goals and Goaloop is the action network to achieve them. Lori Terrizzi (Goaloop's CEO/Founder and Site Architect) is a visionary. She is launching one of the most exciting concepts I have ever seen," said Janet Hanson, founder and former CEO of 85 Broads (now Ellevate).
Goaloop connects and matches goals and engages support for goals in a variety of ways: from tracking a goal, to taking action on a goal, becoming a paid or volunteer mentor/mentee, and participating in a "think tank." Users can sign up as an individual, a non-profit or a business, seek funding for goals, and fund the goals of others. Funding is optional. Its goal index measures monetary and non-monetary activity. "Goaloop uses the goal to transcend social, business and ideological boundaries, to unite us and focus on getting things done. No matter what goal you have, someone else has a goal that will help you to achieve it," said Terrizzi, who built Goaloop with a team that has strong ties to Columbia University.
"While there are a myriad of choices to help achieve goals, they often lead to 'siloed' efforts and present barriers to those who want to connect and integrate their efforts. Goaloop is a unique digital product that connects and unifies people through the establishment of a global goal market," said Goaloop Advisory Board member Ellen Moran, former White House Communications Director, and Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Commerce.
"Goaloop is a new standard in the sharing economy: the Internet began with sharing information, then it grew to sharing things, and Goaloop now represents the next phase of its evolution: sharing goals, sharing what we do," said Barbara Clarke of Astia Angels.
Goaloop is patent pending and has raised over $1.1 million. Launch partners include YWCA of NYC, Ellevate, and The Rao Institute. Goaloop is an Astia company. Got a goal? Goaloop it!
