Background on Team

After working at NYC public schools, NYU Wagner School of Public Policy alumnae Alexandra Meis and Miriam Altman created an app to improve K-12 student attendance. Compiling information from schools and programs, the app analyzes and communicates attendance data to get students the support needed to stay in school. Kinvolved won first prize at the $200,000 Entrepreneurs Challenge (social venture track) and participated in 2013's Summer Launchpad.
