Impact-driven orgs find mobile-app success with Philly startup MilkCrate

Back in 2014, tech whiz Morgan Berman was competing in a “Shark Tank-esque” competition at the Forbes “30 Under 30” summit in Philly to get more funding for MilkCrate, the app she created that connected users to sustainable businesses.

Four years later, things have changed a bit: Berman, the 33-year-old founder and CEO of Milkcrate, LLC, said her start-up has “evolved” to a new, broader focus. Now she’s using her app’s platform as a customizable blank canvas for organizations looking to reach their audience through their very own smartphone app.

“It’s been an evolution over time from when I first started the company five years ago,” Berman told Metro. “We realized there’s all these different organizations and companies out there that need an app to do all kinds of things, to reach all kinds of audiences. … As long as an organization has a stated mission to make the world a better place in some tangible way, then we’ve been happy to work with them.”
