Founder Story

The world is at a crossroads. Technology now enables us to live, create, and transact without borders. Our Founder, Jesse Tevelow, has spent most of his life building companies. First a game company. Then a marketing agency. And now Praise, which will power the Praise Pals™ and other communities. Jesse has experienced horrible tragedies in his life, like all of us. Pain and joy bind us. So while we are here on Earth, let's have fun, celebrate ourselves, and elevate together. We all deserve Praise, just for being alive.
