Vision & Mission
Vision: A safer and smarter planet for all of humanity, impacting today.
Mission: Unleashing effective altruism through the power of applied and advanced technology.
Mission: If we are to thrive within a sustainable world, technology will play a key role. Here at AltruTek, we evaluate and support a wide range of applied and advanced technologies which directly address anthropogenic (human-influenced) problems. We do so within the emerging framework of “effective altruism,” where we advocate the use of evidence and reasoning to determine the most effective ways to benefit others, in the least amount of time. This requires a shifting balance of mind and heart, giving donors increased levels of confidence that their contributions will result in maximum and immediate impact toward precisely targeted problems.
The intersection of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences and Applied Technologies offers unprecedented avenues of environmental and social impact. By directly supporting groundbreaking innovations of applied technologies, we can collectively impact humanities greatest challenges starting today. Significant ecosystems and resources exist for long-term research and high-risk investment in “horizon” technologies. Yet, many companies with ideas and technology operating today do not survive the proverbial “valley of death” in funding. This includes those companies seeking to impact or solve a growing list of anthropogenic problems.
AltruTek exists to identify and assist such companies, applying existing technologies into operational platforms and solutions. We are led by a “core” interdisciplinary board with validated experiences and credentials alongside rotating board members with targeted skill sets and experiences. As we pivot from problem to problem, we adjust our board members, assuring that reason, logic, and efficiency operate in tandem with our relentless passion. This adaptive approach to effective altruism optimizes the stewardship of donor resources and maximizes their impact.
