Radius Launches ‘Data for Good’ to Give Back to Customers & Community for Philanthropic Use of Data
B2B Enterprise Customer Data Platform Rallies Customers, Employees, And Nonprofit Organizations To Improve Society And Help Others
SAN FRANCISCO – January 15, 2019 – Radius, the first B2B enterprise customer data platform, is launching Data for Good, a program that helps both Radius employees and customers give back to their communities. When for-profit customers use Radius to support philanthropic and social causes, Radius will credit-back their account in full for any data used, in effect lowering the cost for customers to pursue important causes. In addition, Radius will donate its service to nonprofits, enabling these organizations to tap into a wealth of business data that can be used to enhance corporate outreach and pursue their charitable missions. The program also includes donation initiatives and employee volunteering to organizations with data-oriented missions.
“We know we have a greater responsibility than just building great technology, but to foster a community that benefits from what we build, our skills as a team, and the generous acts of our customers,” said Radius CEO, Joel Carusone. “We created Data for Good to support organizations that harness the power of data to create a better future and make a positive impact among their communities. We are excited to be a part of this instrumental step in using data for good, and to see all of the positive impact it has on our community.”
We typically see big headlines highlighting the misuse of data, but Radius and its customers are shedding light on how data can be used to give back and support the community, especially when tragedies strike. For example, Radius customer PATLive used the The Network of Record to identify and reach businesses affected by Hurricane Harvey in order to offer its answering services for free while the community got back on its feet.
Data for Good also extends to a donation commitment for nonprofits with data-oriented missions. When Radius customers use data to support the community, Radius will make a donation to either Girls Who Code, who work to close the gender gap in technology, or MissionBit, who strive to eliminate the tech divide for youth and adults living in the San Francisco Bay Area.
“Radius’ Data for Good program supports our mission with workshop volunteering, demo day hosting, and ongoing donations. Together, we will continue to reduce the tech divide and educate students on data science and computer programming,” said Stevon Cook, CEO and Founder, MissionBit.
