The Sumeria Group Mission
Our mission is to build a network of top young professionals and provide social opportunities for members including: fundraising initiatives, volunteer opportunities, social activities, and an online platform with which to stay connected to the Network.
Everything we do is social, but also has a social impact. We see the social impact space as incredibly opportunistic and we're excited to use socializing as a means of giving back to cities around the country. Specifically, we focus on the inner-city education space and everything we do socially either donates money or helps bring volunteers to our non-profit partners.
We're determined to help young people meet new people, but to also enhance their lives socially as well as philanthropically.
Our initiatives nationwide have taken off among the young professional community. Each initiative we oversee is on behalf of nonprofits around the country, but also has its social perks and opportunities too.
With over 2,500 members, Sumeria is a fast-growing network of socially conscious individuals committed to giving back to their communities.
Since its founding in 2011, Sumeria has created partnerships with over 10 non-profit organizations, worked with 20 corporate brands across various industries, and raised over $150,000 from our fundraising events. Additionally, our volunteer programs have totaled over 100 young professionals to date.
Sumeria has current initiatives in New York City and Boston, with new initiatives launching this fall in San Francisco, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
Our team is made up of two ex-investment guys and one Silicon Valley start-up guru. Two had enough with the Finance world and decided to try and make a difference by connecting like-minded, driven young professionals. The other handles everything tech-related for Sumeria and helps drive our west coast efforts, while keeping a pulse on the start-up scene out there in Cali. Our executive team loves to get interns involved with the inner-workings of the company and try to give them the best experience possible in the social impact start-up space.

Life at Sumeria Group
The work environment is maximum exposure, laid back dress-wise but intensity work-wise. We huddle up in a NYC co-op space and get our work done as a team. There's plenty of responsibility to pass around, so if you're hungry and want to have fun, this is an awesome opportunity!
