Pedestal is a collection of accomplished professionals who grow and develop through connection and belonging. The community was born in 2021 when a college professor noticed how difficult it was to find and maintain mentoring relationships. The idea has blossomed into a social media app that awards cryptocurrency to users who share their knowledge and guide one another. Pedestal users are everyday individuals who believe in creating a world that is cultivated by collaboration and intuitiveness. At Pedestal, we believe that mentors and mentees deserve exemplary opportunities to work together and develop professionally, and we have a responsibility to provide. By creating a community for everyone, we have produced a company that is durable and responsive to user needs.
