1% of Nothing

What is 1% of Nothing?

We want to change the world through inspiring early-stage corporate philanthropy. We connect startups and founders to causes, where they can donate 1% of their equity, tying their own success to making major differences with those causes.

The idea is simple:

  • Founders identify a cause that they’d like to support
  • They make the 1% pledge, pledging 1% of their equity to that cause
  • If their startup gets acquired, that 1% turns into cash for that cause
  • Founders can also additionally pledge 1% of their time and/or profit, extending their collaboration with the cause.

1% of Nothing is currently in beta. If you feel like you understand and can appreciate our mission, we encourage you to make the 1% pledge.
