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.

The Social Minute in the US - Giving Tech Labs - X4i - 2019

In the last 60 seconds, we exchanged 250 million emails and instant messages, watched 4 million YouTube videos, 700,000 hours of Netflix, and even swiped 1.4 million times in Tinder searching for love.

Cloud technology powered by artificial intelligence has advanced our lives in ways we never imagined possible.

However, other things happen in one minute in the US. It is this “other” minute we do not talk about enough and that we want to bring to the forefront of the debate on tech innovation, making a case for Tech for 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.

Tech4PI Innovation

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.

Impact Investing

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.
