Prim

Modernizing Mentoring

The world needs your help to make it better and fairer for all.  Our call to action is for you to help us to revolutionize and modernize mentoring.  

We built our platform to be global and scalable for millions to utilize our technology.  Now it’s your opportunity to make your imprint on the world.  Help us redefine knowledge and information as it should be, because there is too much information and misinformation out on the Internet.

PRIM’s communities and curated information makes it easier to help people with meaningful and actionable content.

This is why we created PRIM, which has the same technology as social media platforms, but without all the nonsense.

Why we passionately created PRIM

PRIM is a platform for us to help people one person at a time.  Our co-founders created PRIM because they were disenchanted with social media, the direction it is heading, and its content.  That is why they set out to create a virtual mentoring (VM) platform built on communities and the strengths of our users; and particularly, our mentors. 

The co-founders wanted to show the real world and a virtual world full of imagination and endless possibilities.  As such, the reason they picked dinosaurs as symbolism for the PRIM platform was because of the #1 movie in 1985 called “Baby” when they were kids. The movie had a huge impact and left an indelible mark on them because it entailed a baby brontosaurus that needed guidance.  The adult and baby brontosaurus represents community, nurturing, and growth.  And, we hope PRIM will be that way for you.

As a company, PRIM stands for People Re-imagining Information for Mankind (PRIM).  We are a technology, software, and virtual mentoring company built for the betterment of humanity.  PRIM users will be able to participate in VM with real-world experienced people who are driven to help others.  It is a forum for people to give back to their communities and society by teaching, showing, and mentoring.

Who we are

We are a team who truly believes that software and technology development’s main goal should be to help people. Technology’s purpose should not be just about making money or gain insane riches, but more so how it can help improve people’s lives and for generations to come.

That is why we believe our platform will be so different and unequivocally unique from the other mundane and often divisive social media platforms currently available to the millions and billions of users.

PRIM — communities for like-minded people.

PRIM is here to serve you with cutting-edge, innovative, and creative open-source technology.
