The Crisis Years Begin!March 2020

We're on lockdown like most of the world, so we can't attend startup events soon. Please prepare for a long crisis

In the meantime, we are adding personality-healthrisk matching through SORA Match  and are developing SORA Agreeculture  to help people choose crops for their home garden to feed themselves. In theory, SORA Jobs could have sped up unemployment claims and SORA Relief  could have helped relief goods distribution if we had received funding back in 2016. However, it would also probably reduce the future pain that will then create a demand for the systemic change that we are proposing, and so, things are still looking good
