Noah Simon, Co-Founder of OurPangea Knows That Hard Work and Some Insight Can Go A Long Way
Some people are fine with being products of their environments, but not Co-Founder, CEO and OurPangea’s perennial wiz kid Noah Simon. The Chicago native and Colorado College Alum has discovered that he will never be satisfied until he has completed the project which he knows has the potential to truly make the world a better place.
Over the past few years, Noah has encountered more than his fair share of challenges, motivation and inspiration. When it came to choosing where to go to school, Noah jumped at the opportunity to move to Colorado. He wanted to take the opportunity to escape the familiar and enjoy all of the natural wonders that Colorado had to offer. He wanted his college experience to equip him for all of life’s challenges, so in addition to climbing, skiing and hiking the snow-capped mountains of Colorado Springs, Noah created his own major: leadership.
While Noah knew that the skills he could take away from his studies would offer him invaluable insight into the world of management and business, he also wanted to learn more about himself and self-expression. The curriculum covered business management and organization, social and cognitive psychology and political science, but he also learned from several experiences as a young entrepreneur.
OurPangea is not Noah’s first scrape with the rough and tumble world of small business. The young businessman admits that OurPangea is actually his fifth attempt to start a business, but he feels more motivated and better equipped to succeed than ever before. As a sophomore, Noah started his own student painting business at the same time he tried to launch an earlier version of OurPangea. Although both failed, he still contends that he has no regrets because of the valuable lessons he learned.
Meeting his birth mother for the first time last summer gave Noah a unique perspective that has stayed with him ever since. This perspective, coupled with the hard learned lessons of his earlier business ventures have given Noah the insight and extra motivation he needed to help OurPangea reach its true potential. Noah has devoted himself to studying and understanding the power of creativity and human emotion and believes that both provide the keys to ushering in a whole new age of human interaction.
Noah believes the time has come for a social network that will help its users reach out and learn more about themselves and the world around them. He wants that social network to be about helping communities grow and better equip their citizens for all of the joys and challenges that life has to offer. Most of all, he wants to unlock the true potential of the internet by creating a place for the sharing of knowledge and ideas that can connect people and groups who may have never had the opportunity to meet otherwise. While some believe that it is the uniqueness of every individual that divides the human race, Noah Simon believes that it is that uniqueness that can unite us and, eventually, help us grow and prosper as a people.
