Once users download our app and make an account, they'll donate money into a collective pot that's region-specific, like NYC or London or Tokyo. Then, once the pot reaches a certain amount, the money is distributed (“dropped”) in the form of virtual coins that users can see through Augmented Reality! The coins users find, they keep! However, 50% of the money raised will go to charities based on the principles of effective altruism. Think Pokemon GO, except instead of Pikachus, users catch coins!

Today’s submit-and-sell model of traditional publishing keeps poets in the dark and readers at a distance. The system is costly and stressful for serious poets and prioritizes editors’ decisions, not diverse tastes and total talent. Trūbadour restores the focus back to writing and places poets and readers in control. Our share-and-connect, mobile platform grows audiences by enabling personal networks built on quality poems—and by applying both human and algorithmic curation for poem discovery.
