Startups Give Back harnesses positive momentum

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Startup businesses are a great source of positive economic energy in the U.S. Now, one group is seeking to harness some of that positive momentum to help startups impact the communities around them on a larger scale.

San Francisco-based Startups Give Back is the philanthropy movement where people in the startup community get out of their offices and actively work together to help nonprofits, causes, and the community around them.

It’s an opportunity for you to get away from your desk, step out of the office, and make a meaningful difference — immediately.

The mission is simple: to make philanthropy a top priority for startups around the world instead of an afterthought.

Startups Give Back is also a new way to network. Instead of standing around with a beverage in hand, like traditional networking events, you meet people in the startup community while actively making a difference.

The group links startups with nonprofits who could put time and talents to good use.

So far, regular events have been beach cleanups and food packing in and around the San Francisco area but organizers are hoping to spread the movement.
