Mert Iseri, SwipeSense
Fiona & Carolina sit down with our longtime client and friend, Mert Iseri, CEO of SwipeSense. Listen to his experience growing up in Istanbul, Turkey, and the life-changing moment that made him make the 180 degree turn on his plans abroad in order to move to the U.S., and in the end, propelling him to found the life-saving healthcare company, SwipeSense.  Before the coronavirus pandemic, "hospital acquired infections" were the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. While the seriousness of such an issue may seem obvious today, many U.S. hospitals and clinics have only recently begun to approach "hospital-acquired-infections" in a dramatically different way. As it turns out, these infections are highly preventable through very simple, local hygiene solutions that may sound familiar today. But as we've seen, simple solutions can still be complicated to enforce. Enter SwipeSense, the revolutionary healthcare system focused on keeping hospitals "healthy" and in so doing, keeping their patients healthy.

Walle Mafolasire, Givelify
Fiona and Carolina chat with Walle Mafolasire, CEO and Founder of Givelify, a donation management app that helps connect non-profit and faith-based organizations directly with their members and donors. Global changes in technology, lifestyle, and even the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, have all transformed the way we give. In an increasingly cashless society, innovations like Givelify help to bridge the gaps between organizations and the untapped millions of donors that want to give and make this world a kinder and better place.  Walle is an inspirational testament to the wealth, strength, and importance of our immigrant communities throughout the U.S. In this episode, you'll hear from Walle himself, who credits the diversity of his communities around him throughout his life in the U.S. as the driving force behind his successes.  Whether you are an organization seeking to better connect and grow your membership, or whether you are someone who wants simply "Tap. Give. Done." - you can learn more about Givelify at www.givelify.com  In honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness, and the memories of Walle's father, Olatunji Mafolasire, and Fiona's cousin, Owen Farrell, we invite our listeners to donate to  Big Hearts for Cancer Patients through this link.
