We are a private company owned and operated by social entrepreneurs who are focused on positively impacting the world through partnerships and delivering strong triple bottom line results. Wantsa is currently held by a small number of founding partners, key executives, and initial funding partners.

We envision a world where businesses, causes and consumers are united in creating abundance for all.

Our mission is to leverage technology to develop a sustainable, economic engine that creates positive change by inspiring, empowering and connecting businesses, causes, and consumers.

Our purpose is to combine "online personal search" with "positive change" using our social media based platforms and applications, thereby redefining the future of online business and charitable giving.

  • Create an online search engine that delivers relevant, personal recommendations from people you trust.
  • Offer businesses an opportunity to post offers to their customers at the exact time their customers are looking for a product or service.
  • Offer social network members the opportunity to select a specific cause they care about.
  • Make significant donations to causes through social network members' actions.
