Group Looks to Team Tech Executives With Nonprofits
Could the Silicon Valley management style help charitable organizations?
An organization called Palindrome Advisors thinks so, and it launched a program Wednesday that aims to match executives in technology and other industries with nonprofits that need their help.
“In technology terms, think of Palindrome as a ‘match.com’ for industry leaders and the boards of nonprofits,” the group’s founder, Zaw Thet, told Digits in an email.
Palindrome has 100 executives signed up already–including Twitter’s president of global revenue, Adam Bain; Apple’s director of iPhone apps, Dag Kittlaus; and Ellen Siminoff, a founding executive and former senior vice president at Yahoo. The list of advisers is mostly from the tech world, but there are some outliers, including those in government, the energy business and even nightclubs.
