Frequently Asked Questions 

  • Who are Innovators?
    On VOTO, innovators are business owners, entrepreneurs, creatives, anyone with a THING that they want to share with the world. Innovators are actively working to transform the communities they operate in.
  • Who are Homies?
    Homies are fans and consumers of the great products and services that Innovators produce. They’re the voters that help Innovators make the best decision when releasing something new and make an impact each time they vote.
  • How does VOTO work?
    In order to post a vote on VOTO, Innovators must make a pledge to their favorite charity. Every time a vote is cast, a portion of the pledge gets unlocked. Let’s jump into a simple example: Company CDE pledges $100 to The Benny Foundation and wants 100 Homies to vote and provide feedback. This means every time a vote is cast, $1 is unlocked for The Benny Foundation. $100 pledge = $1 per vote x 100 voters
