Impactfully No. 31: Universal computing

This week, Revivn gives your work computer another life, Marmoset brings a community of musicians together, and The Trevor Project helps end LGBTQ suicide.

If you're like me, you've seen your fair share of technology pass through your hands: new phones and computers replaced every few years to keep up with the latest demands of modern life. What happens to all the technology that gets left behind?

Our featured company this week, Revivn, is helping give that technology a new lease on life. They help companies recycle their old computing assets – essentially, managing what happens to your old computer when your company decides to give you a new one.

Doing so benefits enterprises, sure, but by rescuing this technology from the landfill, they're able to partner with organizations like Teach for America to expand the number of people with access to a computer. I love a win-win situation, don't you?

Here are this week's social impact job opportunities:

Revivn is reviving used enterprise IT equipment to bring computing to more people around the world. They help companies recycle their old electronics and repurpose them so they can be used by people who don't normally have access to a computer. We're particularly excited about the potential impact on education – consider how important computer access has been throughout the pandemic!
