If you're an investor and have come to this site for information on YZ-Scopo, she's under the radar! We're excited to be moving forward on an application like YZ-Scopo, 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.
The reason why we’re excited? For the past two and a half years, we’ve worked to develop YZ-Scopo recognizing the growing influence and impact of Gens Y and Z all over the world.
Events such as the recent #MeToo movement, Greta Thunberg’s environmental crusade, the Hong Kong protests and Black Lives Matter movements 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. Those headliner events reinforce our insights and clearly point to the need for an app that empowers users with tools for action and outcome such as YZ-Scopo.
