If you're an investor and have come to this site for information on GenKloud, she's under the radar! We're excited to be moving forward on an application like GenKloud, that will run with the tuvuga platform algorithms of bridging global gaps to have a social impact on the future generations now and to come. For an exciting investor opportunity, contact us.
The reason why we’re excited? For the past two and a half years, we’ve worked to develop an exclusive gamified business application like GenKloud with the recognition of the growing influence, impact and talents of Gens Y and Z and the coming generations from all over the world.
The great resignation and headliner events reinforce our insights and clearly point to the need for an app that empowers users from a professional and social impact standpoint, with tools for action and outcome such as GenKloud.
Additionally, GenKloud's "social impact function" supports events such as the recent #MeToo movement, Greta Thunberg’s environmental crusade, the Hong Kong protests and Black Lives Matter movements that are mainly fueled by Gens Y and Z. These coordinated efforts were cleverly cobbled together by YZs making do with current social media platforms that are not specialized for those objectives for positive global change.
As Gen Y Mary, joined GenKloud as a Project Management Consultant in 2021 bringing her unique Millennial perspective to drive projects that create opportunities for global connection. After graduating business school from Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts she landed a position with one of the largest e-commerce websites, Wayfair as a Merchandising Specialist. She learned the vast world of e-commerce by working with white-label suppliers to help improve the SEO of their SKU’s through backend data capture.
Mary also spent 12 years working in live music production- a passion that brought her many opportunities managing and networking with new artists of varied backgrounds and nationalities at some of the biggest music festivals in the United States. “A large concert is an experience, to me, where strangers come together to unite and connect under one universal language - music.” She continues as a freelancer to engage and work with the Live Nation concerts seasonally. Mary accepted a position as a Mental Health Worker in Boston, MA at a local state hospital. She was able to use her business skills but more importantly understand the complexities of mental health, types of treatments, the system and their impact on our society. In her downtime- when Mary’s not working on GenKloud or big concerts- she enjoys spending her time with her family, spending time in nature, watching crime-investigation TV shows, and relaxing with her cat (or as she says “fur child”) Swayla
