Description

Homi bills itself as the “career center of the future.” Launched in 2015, the social networking platform enables college students to connect with alumni to find job opportunities. Philip Xiao came up with the idea after he leveraged his Carleton College alumni network to land a high-profile job at Morgan Stanley. He envisions Homi as a way for companies to recruit underrepresented Gen Z talent and foster better mentor-mentee relationships. Since it was formed, Homi has raised $1 million in seed funding, with plans to raise even more.
