It’s very rare that a startup company makes it their mission to genuinely help people. When rapper T.I. came across a startup making huge strides toward supporting people in need he didn’t hesitate to invest his time and money.
Moolah Mobile, a service that turns Android devices into native advertising platform, partnered with SurgePhone Wireless to launch the first free wireless service for low-income communities.
According to a recent press release, the service will provide free talk, text, and data to an estimated 1 million users in select U.S. states over the duration of the partnership by subsidizing their wireless bills with income generated by Moolah Mobile on their smartphones.
“Moolah Mobile’s goal is to use emerging tech to give more economic opportunities and resources to those who need them most,” said Vernell Woods, CEO of Moolah Mobile. “We’re very excited to partner with Surge in creating the first free wireless service for underserved communities.”

“Partnering with Moolah Mobile enhances our ability to utilize emerging technology to improve the quality of life for low-income, under-banked, subprime credit and immigrant populations in the U.S.,” Brian Cox, CEO of Surge said in a statement. “It’s exciting working with a company that shares your vision and has the intensity, hustle, and discipline necessary to execute it. This partnership gives Surge a competitive advantage by essentially creating a no-cost product offering that currently doesn’t exist. I look forward to partnering with the team at Moolah Mobile on other products down the road as we both work to provide technology and digital services to the disadvantaged.”
It gets even better for users. By participating in the program, Moolah Mobile generates passive income for Android users through native advertisements that land on their home screens. They have the ability to opt-in to take surveys that will generate income. They can use the earnings to auto-pay phone and utility bills, make purchases on Amazon, or convert into useful gift cards. Additionally, Moolah Mobile also gives users access to resources like wealth management, education, and career assistance.
“I decided to become an investor in Moolah Mobile because it’s one of the few tech companies I’ve seen who truly wants to help everyday people have access to technology,” said Tip “T.I.” Harris, a strategic investor in Moolah Mobile.
T.I. has long been an advocate for the advancement of impoverished people in black communities. This is a great step in the right direction of helping people in need. I’m sure there is much more to come for Moolah Mobile.
