We would like to introduce you to our volunteers, the people who make Image Impact International’s mission possible by contributing their diverse talents to our nonprofit.
We want to acknowledge them and thank them for all that they do!
Brian Martinez is a first-generation college graduate from New York City, and as such wants to improve the opportunities first-gen students have to pursue excellent post-secondary education as they seek self-actualization.
After receiving his BA in Sociology from Colby College in 2017, he immediately turned his focus to co-founding a successful hardtech startup called NYC Train Sign.
Martinez is continuing his entrepreneurial streak by co-founding a new rideshare company called Aride that aims to improve rideshare drivers’ earnings by utilizing a subscription-based model and monetizing consumer data obtained through interactive advertising. He currently serves as Aride’s Chief of Staff. In short, Brian is a diligent problem-solver with a dedication to learning and building out successful internal systems. In his downtime, he is studying to become a full stack software engineer in order to build the kinds of platforms that better serve people.
