  • For engineers and other tech workers looking for a job that packs a bigger societal or environmental punch than, say, creating another app for gaming or dating, Shelly Cano Kurtz has a suggestion: consider building technology for nonprofits.
  • Kurtz is the co-founder of Giving Tech Labs, a Seattle-based startup bridging nonprofits and tech innovation through multiple initiatives.
  • There are other startup studios that tackle social impact issues, though they tend to have a narrower interest, like children or the environment, and some traditional studios will turn out startups with a public-interest mission.
