GIVING TECH LABS
powering impact and change
Technology for the Public Interest #Tech4PI
At Giving Tech Labs we build and invest in Public Interest Technology Ventures. Addressing social issues is our passion.
Equality, equity, and social justice are fundamental values guiding our pursuit.
Our vision is to inspire entrepreneurs worldwide to drive positive impact and change through artificial intelligence, data sciences, and sustainable models to address systemic social issues.
To inspire others we created x4impact, the largest market intelligence platform for social innovation™
Our mission is to create an impact through technology for the public interest.
We Power Impact and Change
At Giving Tech Labs we create technology and sustainability models to deliver results in a sector that has been largely ignored by technologists.
We focus on three core areas to unleash the potential of the nonprofit sector creating sustainable Technology for the Public Interest as well as on conducting scientific research in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and Sound Technologies applied to solving social issues.
We incubate a new Tech Social Enterprise every year and we graduate it from our lab under a fully operating team and with a sustainability model in place.
Our incubations exit our lab as a C-corp or as a 501c3; in both cases, with sustainability models in place.
Since 2017 we have successfully created 7 tech ventures that deliver impact to +70,000 monthly users.
We remain as shareholders and Board members in the Social Enterprises that graduate our lab under a C-corp or B-corp structure.
We make a handful of investments in seed rounds or series A in promising Software Social Enterprises that have a B2B business model, are past product-market fit, and where our expertise can help them to realize their full potential.
Research & Development
Our AI for the Public Interest – AI4PI practice is our research and development arm.
We focus on AI and Sound Technologies applied to complex social problems and we license our patents or SDKs to the social sector at a substantial discount.
Our applied research papers have been published by the world’s largest conferences in Knowledge Discovery and Data Sciences.
