Technology companies have become the goliaths of the 21st century global economy. With large revenues, however, comes large responsibility to give back. In this session, hear from the Director of Google.org, the company's philanthropic arm, about everything from Google's criteria and model for investing to trends across the philanthropic and social enterprise sectors.
Google.org focuses on more than just giving money, and this session will explore how the team leverages all of Google - from people to products - in support of its philanthropy. All of these efforts are aimed at supporting innovative entrepreneurs who are using technology to take on some of the toughest challenges both locally and globally.
