ChekMarc launched a free, global social platform that allows members to build life-changing connections and create a supportive and positive network. The platform securely and privately permits members to both seek and offer advice, gain new experiences and share knowledge that may help other members achieve a positive benefit.
Founded by Marc Kaplan, CEO of ChekMarc and former partner at Deloitte, and Vrinda Johnson, COO and former Executive Director at Russell Reynolds Associates and PwC, ChekMarc has raised $3M in seed funding. The social platform is available to anyone over the age of 18 and is accessible in over 35 languages.

Designed as a humane technology platform, ChekMarc lets people all over the world connect one-on-one in a more safe and secure manner that reduces bias, judgment, bullying and negativity. Whether it’s how to get started in a career field or start a business, how to improve your leadership skills or find the right plan to achieve a fitness goal, or how to open a restaurant or even write your first book – ChekMarc provides a platform to connect with someone that can help.
Nearly half of Americans haven’t gone a full day without seeing nastiness online. A recent survey of 1,000 nationally representative U.S. adults conducted by Wakefield Research for ChekMarc, found that 47% of U.S. adults have seen a negative interaction online in the past day and nearly 3 in 5 (59%) have encountered it in the past week.
“At a moment when so many people are wondering whether social media is still a worthwhile use of their time and effort, ChekMarc is ready to help elevate human connections that empower people to do good deeds, gain knowledge from each other, and drive positive change in the world,” said Marc Kaplan, CEO of ChekMarc.

How ChekMarc Works:
ChekMarc’s community members log in to the platform at ChekMarc.com or via the ChekMarc app on their iOS or Android devices, and choose whether they want to act as ‘Explorers’ or ‘Catalysts’. Explorers want to achieve a goal in life, gain knowledge or engage with an expert or mentor. Catalysts want to share their knowledge and experiences to make a positive impact on others’ lives. The advantage of ChekMarc is that its members can be both – an Explorer and a Catalyst.
Because members can choose to keep their identity private (until they decide to connect with someone), members can freely and publicly express their goals or aspirations in an effort to find a community member with experience/expertise that can give them one-on-one advice. Similarly, members are encouraged to share their knowledge, areas of expertise or life experiences as a benefit to community members looking to accomplish something. The open exchange for ideas and inspiration is designed to spark and celebrate human endeavors, great and small.
