I’ve written about Radix quite a bit in the past, the domain registry behind domain extensions like .TECH, .WEBSITE and .ONLINE and their commitment to doing good in the world. Last summer Radix partnered with Startup Grind to help entrepreneurs get their ideas off the ground, and this summer they’re at it again, this time supporting an incredible non-profit, Code.org that is dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools.
Helping organizations like Code.org makes a lot of sense for Radix given the leadership’s commitment to people. Last year I did an interview with Radix’s CEO Sandeep Ramchandani and he had this to say about the team:
The team forms the nucleus of Radix. Working together in rhythm is only possible when everyone on the team believes in a common goal and is enthusiastic about it. Unlike various organizations where a team member is just another cog in the wheel, at Radix we welcome and celebrate individual genius. Put together, the team at Radix is not afraid to challenge the status quo or to take risks.
The reason we’ve been able to build and sustain an incredible team is by being extremely selective when hiring. We’re never going to be a several hundred people organization, so we may as well be picky about who we choose! (Read the full interview here)
So it comes as no surprise that a company so focused on company culture also focuses on doing good for the community and in this case, they raised over $60,000 for an incredible cause. Here’s a bit more about the #MyStartInTech campaign:
The campaign was designed to raise awareness about the lack of access to computer science among young women and students from marginalized communities. As part of the campaign, .Tech Domains and the campaign partners will be donating 100% of .Tech domain sales proceeds through May and June, amounting to $65,000+, to Code.org, a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools.
Congrats to Code.org – I’m sure they’re going to put this money to good use, and nicely done Radix, keep doing what you’re doing, it’s pretty darn inspiring! 🙌
