IDEA #126: Marketplace for Doing Good

Congrats to Matt Galligan (@mg) and Shervin Pishevar (@shervin) on their launch of 1% Of Nothing (@1percentof) , an initiative for startups to allocate 1% of equity to a non-profit of their choice, which isn’t used unless an acquisition occurs.

Part of this initiative is the ability for companies to donate 1% of labor as well if they want (or more).
