Dear Friends and Fellow Technologists,
Amidst the troubling headlines we are all seeing on the daily, I would like to share some uplifting stories of people and organizations that have been utilizing technology and compassion to band together during this time:
Wordpress founder, Matt Mullenweg, said: "Technology is best when it brings people together". Those of us at the forefront of technology can be so pressured to our immediate milestones and product launches that our vision becomes myopic. During this unique period of global slowdown, Mullenweg’s quote is a worthwhile reminder of why we are all in this technology business to begin with - to advance our collective health, well-being, and communities.
A couple of the Ioterra team members just finished a trade mission in Eastern Europe right as the travel bans and border shutdowns were taking effect. The hospitality they received from the companies they visited as the lockdowns began taking place, and the eagerness of these companies to use their resources and technology to make a positive impact in the current global context, was inspirational. We are honored to have so many pioneering and visionary companies in our Ioterra ecosystem. We will continue our mission, now and in the years to come, of banding together with technology leaders to create solutions to advance our collective health, well-being, and communities.
Best wishes to you, your businesses, and your families,
CEO/ Co-founder of Ioterra
