Company

Avela is a platform for organizations and governments to run markets to equitably allocate resources and opportunities.

Our mission is to more equitably and efficiently distribute opportunity. We believe the right person in the right position will change the world. And similarly, the right opportunity or school for the right individual could change their life.

Our clients use our tool to match individuals to these opportunities. Examples include assigning students to schools, graduate students to fieldwork, medical residents to hospitals, patients to treatments or doctors, employees to teams, consultants to clients, volunteers to projects, etc. Before Avela, these opportunities were allocated through a combination of manual processes, spreadsheets, and trial-and-error - rife with implicit bias and questionable outcomes.
