Providing free-access is an important element of democratizing data to spark social innovation. Equally important to the democratization efforts is to make the data easy to understand and accessible, as well as combining different sources to offer a comprehensive view. We organized information under one or more of the UN SDG Goals. We use our proprietary content classification engine. Some concepts are documented in our research papers. * IRS related data: 10% margin of error with a 95% confidence level. * SEC data: less than 85% accuracy; we expect to reach high-quality SEC level data by Q2 2021 * Articles, Solutions, and Challenges: Over 90% accuracy. With over 370 Tech for Nonprofit Solutions that address mission-critical needs, we quickly became the largest marketplace for Tech for Good. By analyzing the data from recent rounds of financing filed with the SEC, we gain visibility to thousands of new potential listings every quarter. We apply automated classification validated by a human expert. We cover solutions such as fundraising, cybersecurity, and document automation, as well as mission-critical applications such as homelessness, food waste reduction, combating human trafficking, sexual abuse, climate change, mental health, education, and many others. We have a Tech4PI (Tech for the Public Interest) certification, developed by a multidisciplinary team. EXPLORE LISTING SERVICES Over 75% of the Total Income reported by Nonprofit Organizations in the U.S. comes from selling products or services, hence the importance of aggregating data beyond charitable giving and government grants. We analyze over 600,000 filings of forms 990 and 990-PF with the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS). We exclude religious organizations as well as Private Foundations, Community Foundations, and Trusts, as those entities behave as intermediaries that eventually deploy the money as donations. We aggregate data from the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC). We process 50,000 forms D and D/A filed in the past 18 months. We focus on technology companies raising between $50,000 and $500,000. We remove duplicates by looking at the last amendment filed by any given organization. EXPLORE IT We are just starting. Our aspiration is to become a trusted data intelligence marketplace to spark social innovation. We have many Interactive tools and we plan to continuously release new ones. USAFacts provides the government data (impact indicators), and we combine it with our data. We are using quick and basic prototypes, optimizing for speed to market, learn, and improve. Together, we present a complete picture of the problem, potential and existing solutions, available funding, and the human impact of addressing such problems. INTERACTIVE TOOLS We have over 200 million units of knowledge in over 10 million articlesaggregated from trusted published sources that have a special focus on data. For example the United Nations, US Department of Labor and Statistics, USAFacts, Leading Universities, and Research Institutions, among others. We organized these data and information under one or more of the UN SDG goals. This is enabled through our proprietary content classification engine. SEARCH NOW l Data is extracted and aggregated from grants published by the federal government, as well as by private foundations and private companies. On average our tech inspects around 4,000 potential grants every week and organizes them under one or many UN SDGs. We offer the opportunity for Private Companies, Private Foundations, and Local Government to publish grants in our System. Today we allow uploads of a large number of grants (Bulk Uploads) via CSV file ingest and expect to have a documented API by Q1 of 2021. Please contact us if you are interested in bulk uploads. CONTACT US At launch, we have aggregated over 800social challenges that need a solution or ideas that are ready for investment or for the right social entrepreneur. These challenges and ideas are extracted from published sources through our text summarization components. A private-wiki experience enables experts from nonprofits, academia, and the private sector to augment and refine the work done by our text analytics components. We also work with Hackathons from Universities, Social Incubators, Large Technology Companies, and provide access for Bulk Upload their ideas and challenges. We believe this will be a great way to enable a sustained acceleration of ideas for social innovation. CONTACT US SUBSCRIBE Our approach is AI-assisted rather than AI-replaced. We have automated algorithms and human validation. We have a private Wiki experience for our Challenges and Solutions to enable experts to augment, correct, and refine our content. As of Feb 2021, we have: * IRS related data: 10% margin of error with a 95% confidence level * SEC data: less than 85% accuracy; we expect to reach high-quality SEC level data by mid-spring. * Articles, Solutions, and Challenges: Over 90% accuracy If you see something that we can improve, please contact us. Many niche services charge subscription fees for access to datasets such as private foundations activity, grants, private investment activity, compensation, and more. We believe in the Democratization of Access to Data and on the Power of collective impact. Read more here. There are many unpublished datasets that can be a great contribution to innovation in the social sector. We offer Bulk Uploads via CSV files and in Q1 2021 we will provide access via an API that includes rich editing tools.
