Montana Butsch, Founder, spotivity

Founder of spotivity, a double-sided marketplace that not only supports after school programs to increase enrollment and participation rates but also enables kids and their parents to make the best decisions about how to use time outside of school hours. spotivity removes key logistical barriers to entry and promotes positive networking opportunities while providing a platform for marketers to engage with a key demographic market. This self-sustainable dynamic app will ultimately evolve into a lifestyle/social tool and grow in importance as the user ages.
