Give and Take builds solutions that allow people to share knowledge, exchange help, and build relationships while delivering tangible ROI.
Give and Take is rooted in cutting-edge academic research showing that when you make it surprisingly easy, people will be surprisingly generous, kind, and connected.
In turn, these positive attitudes translate to engagement, loyalty, and bottom-line business results.
Givitas is a knowledge-sharing platform that connects employees, customers, members, donors, students, alumni, followers, subscribers, or any other group for the purpose of exchanging help.
Givitas is kinder, gentler social networking that delivers real ROI to organizations that offer it.
Givitas is designed to require less than 5 minutes a day from users and gives everyone in a group equal access to the collective intelligence of leaders and peers.
Our work is inspired and influenced by the award-winning work of our founding team.
