In March 2020, Tomasz Karwatka, CEO at Divante, came up with the idea to unite technologies companies to share their resources to support non-profit and non-governmental organizations as they react to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
After just a few weeks, 180 technology companies worldwide volunteered their resources, and 80 non-profit and non-governmental organizations shared with us their challenges.
First successful collaborations help to scale up the positive social impact of non-profits. The analysis of NGOs' needs highlights the digital gap between market and impact-driven organizations. Tech To The Rescue, supported by Ashoka Poland, is established as an organization with a mission to facilitate social organizations with acquiring and implementing new technologies.
In less then two months first fundraising round is closed. Ten Polish technology companies and VC unite to support organization set up in the first year.
Work continues to refine the process and help to scale up positive enviromental and social impact globally.
Our mission is to facilitate social organizations with acquiring and implementing new technologies.
'Tech To The Rescue' actively supports worldwide non-profit and non-governmental organizations as they react to the social and environmental challenges.
