Volunteering: It starts here and now
Monday May 14,2012
The founders of tech-social enterprise Start Now Volunteerism Advocacy, Ivan Chang and Keith Tan, built an integrated Internet portal that would not only enable non-profits to use technology to manage and communicate easily with volunteers through a central database, but also allow volunteers to keep track of their activities with ease. Both NUS and SPRING Singapore have been instrumental in getting Start Now to where it is today, said Mr Tan. Mr Chang's alma mater, SMU's School of Information Systems, has also lent its facilities and expertise to refine the business's technological aspects.
