What If we all gave 1%

By | Pledge 1%, Uncategorized | No Comments

What if all companies in the world pledged 1% of their employees time, product and profit. At CoTé , we take this commitment to heart.

So what’s our why?  We believe that business and technology can be a platform for change, and that if we all gave 1% – We could all help change the world!

We take great pride in announcing that CoTé has joined the Pledge 1% Initiative, a global movement that encourages and challenges companies to make a positive impact within their respective communities. The initiative has been successful at promoting a model of early-stage corporate philanthropy, as a way to promote the integration of philanthropy and business and to make it easier for founders and business leaders to give back.

As part of our pledge, CoTé will be giving 1% of employee time and product to projects within our local community, charities and Not for profits.

Pledge 1% launched as a partnership between a small group of companies and foundations in December 2014, and now boasts a membership of more than 1,200 companies in 30 countries around the world. This initiative is also supported through a vast ecosystem of partners, including nonprofits, incubators, investors, venture capital firms, accelerators and co-working spaces. Through the Pledge 1% website, companies pledge 1% of their equity, profit, product or employee time in service of their communities.
