Sebastian: At Zubale we are building the future of work in Latin America. Why? In our region, over 40% of the population lives in the informal economy with low or no access to traditional labor opportunities. Unemployment has skyrocketed during the Covid-19 pandemic, making the situation even worst. In addition, smartphone penetration has skyrocketed, enabling new labor models to emerge. That’s where we come in!
Siya: Thanks for having me, Spiffy. My co-founder, Taylor Stockton, and I are building Pathway Ventures, an early-stage venture capital fund focused on the “Human Side of the Future of Work”. We are investing in founders that are driving economic mobility through innovative new models of earning, learning, and community building.
Max: Great to be here, Spiffy! We founded Givebutter after realizing there was a disconnect between communities — particularly amongst youth and small nonprofits — and the quality of the online fundraising tools available to them. Givebutter strives to be donor-first, creating online giving experiences that foster communities around the causes they support. This influences every feature we prioritize, such as our innovative supporter feed. We also want advanced fundraising tools to be available to important causes without bankrupting the causes themselves, so we created a transparent and low-cost fee structure. Every step of the way, we are aiming to empower fundraisers to build and support both their goals and the communities around them.
