As a high school senior, Jordan Steffy `15CBS founded the Children Deserve a Chance Foundation, a mentoring organization that now serves nearly 2000 students annually. While in business school, Jordan realized the need for a mobile app that would allow mentors and his mentees to communicate, share, or schedule while apart. After coupling with finance guru Joe Brown `15CBS, the two founded Xylem.

Xylem is a mobile platform that enhances communication between mentors and mentees. Xylem seeks to leverage modern technology to enrich the lives of youth and young adults between the ages of 13 and 22 by providing them with a unique and effective mentorship experience. The combination of personal interaction and convenience via modern technology will create an experience that fosters an environment for success.
