Dropwise is a company that makes products and services that do social good. Driply, our first product, is a social, competitive mobile game that gamifies advertising for 100% user engagement. With Driply we can help companies find out what consumers know about them, strengthen their brand, hype up product releases and find out what causes consumers care about. By purchasing from advertised companies players receive additional points. A major aspect of the game, the majority of revenue is donated by Dropwise to whichever charitable causes players select. By playing Driply you can be a social champion, and champion change.
