The app that believes in you.

Influences is a mobile app that matches you with good ideas when you need them most.

Influences gets to know you like a person.

To unlock personalized content, Influences communicates with you like a mentor.

We’ve developed a contextual algorithm that delivers ideas and inspiration in the form of targeted video content.



Influences tailors short videos (such mini-documentaries, biopics, TED talks and intellectual how-tos) to a user’s specific taste, focusing on content and that evokes inspiration and meaning to help you achieve your lifelong goals.


Chat with your personal virtual mentor to unlock new video stories. We’ll ask you questions that no search engine would think to ask in order to get some context on your life and what makes you tick.


See who’s influenced by the same stories as you. Browse the stories that people you admire have saved in their library. Share stories with people you think they could have an impact on.

What people are saying…

Ari is working on a social idea to make the world a better place. This is a kick-ass app that drives motivation and human potential home.- Eric Brousseu | Global Product Management Director at Nike
I love this! The concept of curating content around influence and inspiration is great and with market trends showing content marketing to be a dominant force in 2014 the timing is perfect for monetization too.<br /> - Robert Swisher - CTO at
A lot of people use social media to share mundane things or for self-glorification. I try to use it to share interesting things with people. Tony Hsieh, who created, said to me, “Everything I post on the Web has to be ICEE”—it has to inspire, connect, entertain, or educate. The other important thing about social media is that it’s not about what you post but what you listen to. It’s about sharing the valuable ideas that you hear. You don’t want to be the source of everything, you want to be the pipe for everything.- Ashton Kutcher
Inspiring content is what keeps me going day in and day out. It keeps me motivated, is a catalyst for creativity, and offers hope when I run into hurdles.<br /> But the challenge is constantly finding quality content that matters to me.<br /> Influences efficiently solves this problem, and will become the staple in my information diet.- Blake Jamieson - Director of Content Marketing at Leslie's Pools
