On this September 12, 2016 episode of The Opening Bell, Steve heard from Rose Afriyie of mRelief.com on CEO Spotlight. This web platform aims to help Americans figure out if they qualify for social services. Afriyie spoke to the rewarding, albeit difficult sides of running an NPO and how disjointed the politics around food stamps can get. He also talked to Ric Militi and Alanna Markey, co-founders of Zip:The Question Answer App, an app that instantly settles friendly squabbles by “gathering responses from fellow users quickly and anonymously.”
