Doing well and doing good.

We’re used to operating by the maxim “you can have cheap, fast or good: pick two”, but with the triad of sustainability, happiness and profit you really can have all three. In fact, with those things as a focus they actually nourish each other.

Companies are composed of individuals and we can do both, do good and do well. In fact, it’s more rewarding. 

The value of a company’s goods and services is relative to the waste it generates. Sustainability and happiness are not at the expense of profit but a means to it.

Volunteer, Hire, Partner, Sponsor… PepUpTech.org is a non-profit dedicated to increasing the number of underrepresented people in tech.

PepUp Tech gives motivated, underserved students the access, skills, mentors, and confidence needed to begin careers in tech and help diversify the industry.

We are in a moment in history where we have the data, we well know the consequences if we don’t act, we have the skills, knowledge, technology, influence… to make a difference. Past generations haven’t had all of these. Future ones won’t have the timing. It’s a pivotal time. We can make a dent, we can be part of the solution. There is a better way to do business.

The question is: Are you willing to be part of it?
