The GSBI originated from the observation that technology innovations bene!ting humanity, such as those honored by The Tech Awards program, rarely achieved meaningful scale. The GSBI seeks to link social enterprises using these innovations to the Silicon Valley acumen of building scalable, sustainable ventures. While stories of innovations bene!ting hundreds or thousands of lives are inspiring and heartwarming at black-tie events, and they certainly matter to those hundreds or thousands of people, such impact represents a tiny fraction of those suffering from the pressing problems of poverty.
