Seeds: Farmville meets Kiva and For-Profit Gaming Transforms the World
Seeds (Farmville meets Kiva) a big time for-profit social game and API for mobile microlending in early growth stage. People in the US can play the game on their cells, sending microloans directly to the mobile phones of entrepreneurs in Nairobi, Chicago, and eventually anywhere in the world. Our vision is to transform the way the world conceptualizes gaming, embedding the Seeds API in every game possible for a revenue split, so that all games have a positive social impact and more entrepreneurs can source capital and improve economies.
Our team includes Amanda Wixted, the former Tech Lead of Zynga's iOS Team, and Game Designer Brad Wiggins, recipient of IGN's Mobile Platformer of the Year Award (both Editor's and Player's Choice) in 2005, and Wireless Gaming World's 2007 Award for Casual Game of the Year. We're currently raising a seed round.
