Founder, Haven Safe

"DCCM has been a catalyst for transformation at Haven, my campus safety startup, and a personal game-changer for me. Their invaluable support in covering tuition costs empowered me to devote my full attention to developing Haven.

The mentorship provided by DCCM’s experienced mentors and members has been a driving force behind our company's growth, opening numerous doors and presenting unparalleled opportunities. Moreover, the generous grant enabled us to advance our technology significantly, thereby playing a crucial role in supporting students across North America as they confront critical incidents, including sexual assault. DCCM's assistance was pivotal not just for Haven, but it also cast a wider net of support, benefiting countless students in profound ways."

Hear from our Alumni

"When my team and I first received the DCCM grant, it was a pivotal moment for me in recognizing my capacity to generate something meaningful change from scratch. It was a powerful example of what happens when you bring ideas to fruition. It validated the significance of social impact initiatives.

 

I am so grateful for the invaluable lessons learned during that time, which continue to inform my approach to projects today. My ongoing relationship with the DCCM team is a testament to the continuing impact of that experience."
