Company description
1Degree is a platform that allows influencers, including athletes, public figures, industry leaders and celebrities, to engage directly with the public via FaceTime, while allowing them to raise proceeds for themselves and charity. Here's how it works: Follow your favorite influencer for the opportunity to video chat with them. You will receive a push notification when an influencer you follow creates a live auction of back-to-back two-minute video chats. You can then bid on each two-minute time slot to video-chat directly with that influencer. The winner of each slot will be the highest bidder or the first person to reach the $200 bid cap. And Voila! You really get to chat face-to-face with someone who influences your life! After your chat, the influencer can donate the proceeds to charity and message you if they would like to continue the conversation.
