Catalyst 2030 founding member and serial social innovator and entrepreneur, Jim Fruchterman, has launched Tech Matters as an independent tech-for-good non-profit organisation, with its own board of directors and charitable status. The launch was announced at the Skoll World Forum 2023 and covered in Alliance Magazine.
Tech for social innovators
As the Founder and CEO of the Sillicon Valley-based Tech Matters, Jim’s focus is on bringing the power of tech to social innovators. Tech Matters has so far raised more than $10 million from funders including Schmidt Futures, Skoll Foundation, the Jenesis Group, the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation, Meta, Okta, Peery Foundation, Twilio and others. The nonprofit has also already launched AseloTM, an open source platform that is dramatically advancing the work of child helplines in Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America. A second tech-for-good initiative focused on community-based climate adaptation is launching soon. Read the full announcement on the Tech Matters website.
