Why integrating philanthropic strategies should be the new norm for tech startups

by Inline Policy on 18 Mar 2014

We’re in the midst of the biggest technology boom in a decade. Dropbox and Box are following Twitter and Facebook into celebrity IPO territory. Venture capital returns for 2013 were at a 10-year high. Companies are competing for talent, employees are calling the shots, and there are no signs of the momentum slowing down.

The gains of this boom, however, have been partially overshadowed by a debate about the impact of tech’s dazzling success on the general welfare of our communities. From gripes about outrageously high rents to protests about the Google buses unfairly using public bus spaces, the boom has a ripple effect that touches every individual in our community.

So how can we leverage this great success to give back to the community—and the world—in a meaningful way?
