Addressing the Needs of Social Innovators – Let’s Solve for Good

Over one million nonprofits in the US are addressing our social challenges. They report an annual income of $2.9 Trillion. But the whole sector faces data and insights related challenges:

  • There is a lack of access to insights to understand the social sector holistically and across issue areas.
  • Relevant content is too sparse on the general web and drowned out by noise. Quality content exists, but it is fragmented among different portals that offer a niche view of the complete picture.
  • The sector lacks custom data, research, and advisory services to gain efficiencies in go-to-market, tech development, policy, and operations that other industries enjoy.

We Empower Leaders in Nonprofits, Foundations, Tech for Good Companies, Social Enterprises, Universities, and Local Governments, to Do Well by Doing Good
