Technology for the Public Interest #Tech4PI
At Giving Tech Labs we build, advise, 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 the deployment of Technology for the Public Interest under sustainable models.
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 inspire, advise or invest in social ventures that deliver results in a sector that has been largely ignored by technologists.
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 +150,000 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.
We engaged as acting CXOs with emerging or established tech companies and apply our proven model on:
- Branding & Leveraged Go-To-Market Strategy.
- Business Modeling, Unit Economics, Impact Metrics, Data, Product, or Services Monetization Paths.
- User Experience and User Journeys optimized for reaching Impact Goals.
- Tech Assessments, including architecture review (on AWS), Gap Analysis & Audit of Digital Tools.
- Data into Insights and roadmap planning for product and data strategy.
