Empower United, a new social enterprise, aims to help all Americans make serious money together

CARMEL, N.Y., Dec. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A new social enterprise, which aims to unite millions of Americans into one large start-up company, launched its innovative business model this week. Empower United seeks to leverage the collective purchasing power of US consumers by capturing the revenue created in things they already do every day. The ultimate aim is to fully fund an average person's basic living expenses such as food, housing, healthcare, childcare, education and retirement.

By allowing all Americans to become entrepreneurs, capitalists and partners in one large start-up company, Empower United fully embraces the current economic system in a way that works for a 100% of the people.

Empower United's vision is to provide a fully empowered cash-back loyalty program that will allow people to make serious money together. Once fully operational, Empower United will be effectively 100% owned and controlled by its individual members. Individual membership will be free and open to all US citizens, 18 years of age or older. Like most companies, Empower United's main objective will be to maximize profits for its owners, the American public.

"Empower United introduces a win-win model for individuals and companies, which could work, because it's very profitable for both sides and is based entirely on free-market principles," said Tom Higgins, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Empower United.

"By fully leveraging the purchasing power of our members, we should be able to generate much higher cash-back percentages than a normal cash-back program," explained Pat Higgins, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Empower United. "We then invest this money back into the companies where the cash-back was generated and finally all the profits are credited to the members' accounts."

With this initial launch, Empower United seeks to collect feedback on the proposed concept and attract financial support in order to fully develop its vision.
