Alumnifire is powered by alumni.
We're on a mission to open doors.
Alumni networks may be the most valuable things we have that we don’t use. In fact, 9 out of 10 alumni tell us that they’d prefer to hire a fellow alum if given the choice, but this happens less than 4% of the time. That's a lot of doors nobody's opening.
We're killing the cold call.
Alumni networks surround us — from college and high school networks to employer and volunteer networks. Members want to help each other but 99% of them are strangers. They're not connected to each other on social media or anywhere else. Reaching out shouldn't be a cold call.
Alumnifire is the first independent and organic digital networking platform powered directly by alumni. It engages members to open doors and create opportunities for one another in the real world and on their own terms.
