Project Concern International Logo

Yesterday we looked at Institute for Educational Leadership, one of a seemingly endless number of non-profits devoted to improving educational outcomes. Education seems to be one of the most worthy and, as a result, pursued causes, but I think poverty reduction has to come in number one. Project Concern International is a San Diego, CA based international development non-profit that works to “prevent disease, improve community health and promote sustainable development worldwide.” The core idea behind PCI is that they identify areas with the greatest need and then deliver help in a way that can have lasting community impact.

FSG Logo

Yesterday we looked at InterAction, a non-profit organization that brings other non-profits together to work towards common goals in international relief and development. Today we’re going to look at another non-profit that helps other non-profits. It’s called FSG, and they’re a “consulting firm specializing in strategy, evaluation, and research” with offices in Boston, MA; Geneva, Switzerland; Mumbai, India; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; and Washington, DC. They were founded in 2000, and they are constantly working “to develop more effective solutions to the world’s most challenging societal issues.” They approach problems with four key ideas: Catalytic Philanthropy, Collective Impact, Shared Value, and Strategic Evaluation.

Opera Solutions

I guess I could have done today’s post about how we’re hiring interns, but I already wrote a post about that on our blog. So today we’re going to talk about something completely different. Big Data Analytics. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Opera Solutions is a company that “combines human expertise with advanced capabilities in analytics, technology and data management to offer Big Data Analytics as an ongoing service to leading organizations in industry and government.” They’re located in New York, NY; Jersey City, NJ; San Diego, CA; London, UK; Paris, France; New Delhi, India; and Shanghai, China. I know it’s kind of hard to get a grasp on the kind of problems that Opera Solutions solves, but luckily they’ve provided an awesome example. They put together a team to work on the Netflix Prize, a contest that offered a $1 million prize for a solution that would “substantially improve the accuracy of predictions about how much someone is going to enjoy a movie based on their movie preferences.” Opera Solutions’ team ended up tying for first, but just barely missed out on winning the prize.

Duron Energy

Duron Energy Logo

Believe it or not, I’ve been on vacation in Aruba for the past week (I’m sneaky like that). I have a few friends who are locals, and one of them was telling me that he will soon be moving out on his own. His expected rent is dirt cheap at $400 per month, but he expects that his electricity and water bills will easily surpass the monthly rent. We often take affordable clean water and electricity for granted in the United States, but even in a highly developed tourist destination like Aruba they can be insanely expensive. Now just imagine living in a developing nation with low income and high energy costs. Electricity is an extreme luxury. But not for much longer if Duron Energy has their way. They’re a company that came out of Idealab, and they are “a leader in affordable power products designed for off-grid use in emerging markets.” Duron Energy is headquartered in Bangalore, India, but they also have offices in Ahmedabad and Lucknow (both in India) as well as in Los Angeles, CA.

Intellectual Ventures

Intellectual Ventures Logo

One of the books that I’ve been reading lately is SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes, and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance. It’s a great follow-up to the original Freakonomics, and it once again shows how changing your mindset can lead you to all kinds of new ideas (this is a really important lesson for your career). One of the companies that is mentioned in the book is Intellectual Ventures, a Bellevue, WA based invention company. They’re all about ideas. Things like product design, product development, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and service all come later, and Intellectual Ventures doesn’t want anything thing to do with those processes. They just invent, invent, invent. The company isn’t tied to one specific area—they’re working on problems like stopping Malaria, preventing hurricanes, and counteracting negative effects from climate change should they ever happen.

LinkedIn Logo

A lot of people find it ironic that I put an end to my job search by starting a company that helps other people with their job searches. I’ll admit that it’s a bit odd, but it seems to be working out pretty well. Maybe you’ll do something similar by starting your career with an internship at a job-search focused company like Mountain View, CA based LinkedIn. There are plenty of other companies trying to build professional social networks and online résumé sites, but none of them seem to have any hope competing with LinkedIn. LinkedIn reached critical mass first, and that’s why they’re one of my favorite online job search tools. Not only do they allow you to visualize your own professional network to see whom you’re connected to, but they also let you browse through the networks of different companies to learn more about their organizational structure. Where else can you get access to the résumé (which includes where they interned) of someone whose job you want to have five years down the road? LinkedIn is an amazing tool for smart job and internship seekers, and it’s also an amazing business—they’ve been profitable for nearly three years (which is impressive for a startup of their size and scope).
