This startup helps young people find a meaningful career. 500 Miles uses big data and a mobile app to do this.

The new company encourages its users not to find just a job, but a meaningful career by connecting them with "high-growth employers." This will certainly appeal to millenials who want their work to mean something, and even more so to recent grads or young professionals who are struggling with unemployment or underemployment. If you have asked yourself 'what am I doing with my life' lately, this is an app definitely worth checking out.

The platform is designed to help users expand their possibilities, view insights, ask alumni and employers questions and track companies they are interested in.
