Announced Today – 6sense Joins the Global Pledge 1% Movement
6sense is thrilled to announce that it has joined the Pledge 1%, a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business, with a 1% equity contribution.
Founded by Atlassian, the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Colorado, Rally Software and the Salesforce Foundation, Pledge 1% empowers companies to donate 1% of product, 1% of equity, or 1% of employee time to improve communities around the world.
In August, 6sense announced a donation of $87,000 to support Girl Rising, a global campaign for girls’ education. Every 10% increase in the number of girls who are educated will result in a 3% increase in GDP, making educating girls a measurable solution that changes lives and economies.
Now we stand alongside an impressive network of entrepreneurs and companies across the globe who have also committed to philanthropic efforts. We are honored to be recognized at Dreamforce today for our participation.
“6sense has a greater purpose beyond building a predictive intelligence platform. Data provides us the opportunity to build a successful business, and data holds the key to solving real-world problems,” says 6sense CEO and founder, Amanda Kahlow. “We want to redefine success in business so that all companies compete to not only be the best in the world but also the best for the world.”
When Marc Benioff founded Salesforce in 1999, philanthropy was an integral part of the corporate culture with the launch of the 1:1:1 model. In 2014, Salesforce teamed up with Atlassian and Rally Software to encourage 500 companies to also make this pledge. So far, over 300 companies have joined.
“The Salesforce Foundation is dedicated to changing the way companies think about corporate philanthropy,” said Suzanne DiBianca, president, Salesforce Foundation. “Today, we’re excited that 6sense is joining us in giving their resources back to the community. This is another great example of the power that business has to affect positive change.”
