As part of our Tech for Good initiative, FounderTherapy is proud to share that we’ve officially joined Civic Hall, a groundbreaking collaboration center for civic innovators. Located in NYC’s Flatiron District, Civic Hall connects people and organizations with a cross-sector network, professional growth/development, and opportunities to collaborate and advance the use of technology for the public good.

“We joined Civic Hall because we’re ready to be at the very core of the social good entrepreneurship movement in NYC,” said Greg Matthews, Head of Business Development at FounderTherapy. “We firmly believe Civic Hall is leading this charge.”

Aligned with FounderTherapy’s longstanding mission of helping companies make an impact on the world around us, it was only natural that we were drawn in by Civic Hall’s commitment to social innovation.

“Our team members are dedicated practitioners and catalyzers for early stage companies,” Matthews said. “We help founders execute their plans and solve the problems they’ve set out solve. We are eager to contribute our expertise to the Civic Hall community.”

FounderTherapy believes in solving problems that really matter, not just building better widgets. Our Tech for Good initiative, led by Product Director and sustainability expert Karen Schlesinger, specializes in working with social enterprise and impact-oriented startups. At our company, Tech for Good means using technology to solve problems in the areas of the environment, education, healthcare, and civil society.

“I strongly believe that harnessing the creativity and passionate drive of entrepreneurs, and especially those founding tech startups, is one of the most effective ways to make positive social and environmental change at scale,” said Schlesinger. “We’re committed to using our unique combination of technical expertise, company-building expertise, and domain expertise in the impact space to help these early-stage startups be successful.”

As part of our engagement, we’ll soon be hosting FounderHours at Civic Hall. FounderHours are one-on-one strategy sessions designed to address founders’ most pressing questions about launching a successful software product. Social impact tech startups within both the Civic Hall community and broader NYC tech ecosystem are invited to sign up for a complimentary session using this link.

We’re glad to have found a community of like-minded change makers at Civic Hall and Civic Hall Labs, and we’re thrilled to be joining all the amazing companies and organizations making this community thrive.

I help early stage companies bring their software products to market through holistic product development, sales operations development and optimization, and user acquisition strategy and development. Previously I was the Product Development Lead at Axial, where I managed their transition from a financial advisory consulting company into a product-driven technology startup with an online private network of over 10,000 financial professionals taking thousands of private companies to market for late-stage financing. Prior to Axial, I launched and built profitable outsourced Sales and Customer Service Operations for a number of technology and software companies, including HP, Intuit, Polycom and ADP.
