Beyond a Better Product: How We Give Back Together

After each research study, we make a small donation to the following nonprofits based on the number of participants.

Tech+Me (United States)

Through connecting technology with passion, Tech+Me strives to make computer science and tech education more accessible to children of underprivileged and vulnerable backgrounds while empowering underrepresented groups in the tech field.

Copaps - Bologna (Italy)

Copaps aims to achieve the social inclusion of people with disabilities and in difficulty through personalized work paths, in a sustainable agricultural environment and in a relational context of hospitality and integration. Work becomes both a source of well-being and self-esteem, and a means of social integration.

Giving back is a core part of who we are, and we love the idea of giving back together with you!
