Tom Arrix

Founder/CEO, Former VP of Global Marketing Solutions at Facebook

What do you do when you have a front row seat, watching your children grow up and sifting through the challenges and opportunities life throws at them? Tom spent the last 4 years helping early stage companies grow up, mainly through digital, marketing and business building expertise. One of the companies Tom came across was Betr. What was originally an idea that was focused on student-athlete development and wellness quickly became a real product, a platform that is laser focused on a generation that needs our support the most, Generation Z. It's way too common today to see the complexities in a young person's life go unchecked and unaddressed. The way we look at our world today is through the lens of positivity. We thought about how Betr could become a key part of a young person’s life but in the most uplifting way possible. We dream about bringing hope, confidence and optimism to young people everywhere. Join our journey!
