“The Established team searches across all avenues and around the world for diverse, rising startups that are the best of the best to apply to be part of our Startup of the Year community and programs. As a part of our application process, young companies are invited to “Take the Pledge” and learn more about how to incorporate giving back from our long time partner Pledge 1%.” We find extreme value in keeping philanthropy at the forefront of our global startup community’s mind.” - Jen Consalvo, Co-CEO, Established.
For our friends that don’t know, Pledge 1% is a national nonprofit that inspires early-stage corporate philanthropy. We incorporate a set of introductory questions in our startup award application and event registration, encouraging all to make the choice and/or learn more on how to further their impact. Companies are able to choose a way to give back that is relative for the company’s set of values and mission, which is great as they continue to evolve and grow.
Established is grateful to be a Pledge 1% Builder member, and we will always encourage our startup community to embrace a vibrant crossroads of early-stage giving and continued innovation.
