"My idea for Kolyde came when I saw a discussion on a social media platform devolve without resolution," Vincent Mays, CEO and Founder of Kolyde. "We all like to engage in spirited discussion on the topics that matter most to us. Kolyde provides a level playing field and guardrails for people to debate, and their network votes on who made the most compelling argument. I first sketched out my idea with colored pencils, but when I took it to Shift3, it came to life. Now college students will be testing my app and I hope it helps generate more civil conversations online."

The application is set to go through beta testing with California State University, Fresno in November with a number of other educational institutions set to begin testing in the coming months.

"Today, every idea can become a digital reality with the right vision and partners," said JP Prendergast, Shift3 Technologies. "We help non-technical founders with the technical side of their business so they can create innovative solutions to the problems we face every day."
