The Company

Synergy was founded in 2003. Only 7 years later, President Barack Obama invited its President and CEO, Prachee J. Devadas, to a meeting in the Oval Office, where he singled out Synergy as representing the promise of opportunity in America. In a short time, we have grown from a staff of two working at a kitchen table to a small business with more than 100 full-time employees. We are deeply committed to supporting organizations—in our neighborhoods, our nation, and across the world—that help people in need. Our staff members assist homeless families throughout the Washington metropolitan area, support innovations in substance abuse research, work with paralyzed veterans, and fund education in the Mumbai slums.
