Social Champ, the Martech startup providing social media management solutions, is breaking new ground in corporate social responsibility and setting an example for other businesses.
As part of its social responsibility commitment, Social Champ partnered with Pledge1% to dedicate its time and product to various philanthropic causes. By giving back, Social Champ is ensuring that its success has a positive impact on society.
“Even before Social Champ, I was committed to giving back to society, especially the university that gave me my two co-founders by volunteering and training students on behalf of Microsoft, Nokia, and now Meta (Facebook). However, with Social Champ, we had the opportunity to give back on a bigger scale, so since its inception, we decided to make policies that would help us do so. Apart from partnering with Pledge1%, we are also committed to regularly helping those who cannot afford social media management with discounts & cut-offs, especially after the pandemic. This has enabled us to stay humble in the face of hardships and maintain scalable success,” said Sameer Ahmed, CEO of Social Champ.
The company is also committed to mentoring and supporting the next generation of tech entrepreneurs. Khan is a mentor at the Founders Institute, where he helps entrepreneurs launch successful startups. Additionally, Social Champ’s co-founders provide one-on-one mentoring sessions to startup owners. The company is also part of the Techstars batch, which encourages a #givefirst approach to all founders.
“Giving back to the founders’ community is so important,” said Social Champ’s CEO, Sameer Ahmed. “After all, you understand the struggles that they are facing right now, so you are able to relate to them on another level,” said Khan.
Social Champ’s mission to give back extends to solopreneurs and founders just starting their careers. The company recently launched a powerful FREE tier with unlimited posting and all unlocked features, but for only three social profiles. This innovative offer is aimed at helping these businesses grow their social media presence without breaking the bank.
“We were working on a dynamic free plan that can support and help all who are starting out with social media and do not have the funds or the workforce to support a digital presence fully. And last year, we were finally able to come up with one. Our free plan is not limited in functionality or has anything locked. You can access all premium features for three accounts without actually paying us at all. However, as you grow, we would like to grow with you, so you can easily scale with a higher plan whenever you like,” said Shakir Ghani, COO of Social Champ.
The company also mentors university students and works closely with the University of Karachi’s Computer Science Department, UBIT, as alumni. By providing mentorship and support, Social Champ is committed to helping the next generation of tech entrepreneurs succeed.
Social Champ also offers a 50% discount for NGOs and nonprofits for a lifetime. The company understands the importance of giving back to society and hopes that this discount will help these organizations achieve their missions more effectively.
