About Karma:

Established in 2005, Karma had the original mission of connecting exceptional, inspirational individuals socially and professionally through high profile experiential events, business networking, and social gatherings.  For the past twelve years, Karma enjoyed revenues of $32 million (membership fees, sponsorship, and tickets) while offering 374 experiential events all over the world to their community of 65,000 people. Over the past three years, Karma built an advanced membership technology platform to allow scalability beyond the current nine chapters in Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, Houston, Bucharest, and Kyiv.

In the era of decentralization, Karma's new mission is to provide its own Protocol to empower membership-based communities around the world, including:

  1. Physical membership organizations (golf clubs, social clubs, etc.)
  2. Virtual membership organizations (university alumni chapters, business networking organizations, etc.)
  3. Non-profit organizations, which lack the operational backbone (CRM, ERP, BI, etc.) to raise funds from their donor base transparently.
