The Crunchbase Pro Bono Licensing Initiative

At Crunchbase, we recognize that not all innovators have equal access to opportunities, and their ideas–no matter how great–may not have the same chances to break through. 

That’s why we joined Pledge 1% in 2018 and have since donated at least 1 percent of our product, equity and employee time to help support nonprofits working to close the opportunity gap. But we know it will take more than just 1 percent to democratize access to opportunity and create meaningful change.

To further our impact and provide additional resources to support the communities where our employees live and work, we’ve also created the Crunchbase Pro Bono Licensing Initiative that goes beyond just donating 1 percent of our product.
