Who are we?

We started DiveIn to help channel everyday humanity into tangible local action. Community involvement has never been more important. Yet, there are few technology options available for people who are ready to connect with their local communities and start making an impact.

Frustrated by being forced to take a digital trip back to the early 2000s whenever we wanted to lend a helping hand, we decided to do something. We believe that in this day and age, you should not only be able to get a ride, groceries delivered, or a date with a few taps; you should also be able to get off of your couch and help your community. We built DiveIn to make mobilizing and engaging in your local community a lot less annoying. It really shouldn’t have been so hard in the first place. We hope you enjoy using DiveIn and, more importantly, helping your community as much as we do.
