Our mission is to promote generosity toward under-valued service industry workers.
Our virtual tipping platform promotes and facilitates tipping between hotel guests and their room attendants. Studies tell us that 70% of the time, a hotel guest does not leave a tip because they either do not have cash or are unaware of gratuity practices in the hotel industry. Knowing that the hotel room attendant on average makes less than $23K per year, Tip$ believes we can increase the room attendant’s income if we provide a virtual tipping platform for the hotel guest to leave a gratuity.
Tip$ is a Social Enterprise based in Hartford, CT and a member of reSET Social Enterprise Trust since October 2019. As a social enterprise, we measure and disclose how our platform increases the income of service industry workers such as room attendants.
Tip$ was selected to participate in the reSET 2020 Accelerator Program and the winner of Flight Night November 2019: Audience Choice Awards, sponsored by Murtha Cullina LLP & reSET.
