About Swiirl

Swiirl is a pioneering platform that transforms student artwork into digital collectibles, offering a novel approach to school fundraising and brand engagement. At its heart, swiirl aims to tackle educational inequity by providing under-resourced schools with a sustainable and innovative funding source.

Problem Statement


Educational inequity is a pervasive issue, particularly in financially constrained communities. Schools in these areas struggle to secure adequate funding, impacting the quality of education and resources available to students. Traditional fundraising methods often rely on the same financially strained local communities, creating a cycle of underfunding that limits students’ potential and opportunities.

Additionally, in the competitive market landscape, brands constantly seek authentic, meaningful ways to engage with their audiences. There’s a growing need for content that resonates on a deeper, more personal level, fostering genuine brand loyalty.

Solution & Uniqueness


Swiirl transforms student artwork into digital collectibles (NFTs) and sells NFTs to brands to generate a new, sustainable revenue stream. Brands leverage NFTs for marketing and loyalty programs, aligning with social responsibility goals.

Web3 Integration and blockchain ensure authenticity. Building community connections fosters connections between schools, brands, and consumers thus empowering marginalized communities.

Scale of Opportunity

Compared to the current models where farmers reach out to local brokers of information, AgriConnect provides access to information at zero cost with only internet access charges to be borne by farmers. Potential to reach 5,000 farmers to access AgriConnect as part of the ongoing partnership negotiations by the end of the Calendar Year.
