Technology for the Public Interest
What is Technology for the Public Interest – Tech4PI?
Cloud technology powered by artificial intelligence has enhanced our lives in ways we never imagined possible. How can we leverage these technologies to maximize impact for millions of nonprofits and social organizations worldwide?
For technology to address complex problems in society, it must be grounded in a deep understanding of human behavior, cultural differences, empathy, inclusion, and social connections.
Technology for Public Interest – #tech4pi, is a field dedicated to leveraging technology and proven sustainability models to support social sector organizations in delivering their mission.
Tech4PI Principles based on experience creating and commercializing Tech for Good
A 3-year journey, incubating 7 successful tech for good ventures at Giving Tech Labs, inspired the first draft of these principles. It is a checklist we followed to create successful incubations such as VidaNyx.
When we did not follow one of these principles, we failed to deliver real sustainable, and impactful Tech4PI.
With the input from our Advisory Council and other experts, as well as constant learning from the data captured over time, we will make these principles core guiding elements of Tech4PI built under the X4Impact exchange.
Our goal is to inspire the creation of sustainable tech ventures that address our urgent needs in society.
