|Givero Introduction (2019): »Givero is a privately owned company located in Holbaek, Denmark. Givero’s owner, Brian Rasmusson, has a long history as an entrepreneur. Brian believes tech companies in the coming years need to take social responsibility and contribute positively to the development of our society.« Source|
|Givero Introduction (2019): »Using Givero you’re not only making an impact on the world, but you’re also choosing a data ethical search engine. Your searches are kept safe, and your search history isn’t kept or correlated with your behavior.«
|Brian Rasmusson (2019) via Hacker News: »Givero is a search engine that shares its revenue with good causes you choose.
We silently opened to the public about a month ago, and we are currently putting the final touches on the site and story, and working on onboarding more charities. Right now you can support charities working for climate, animals and children.
Since we have a lot of DuckDuckGo fans on here, I think I should mention that Givero: * Has DuckDuckGo compatible bangs * Has Instant Answers (just launched the first 3, more to come) * Is Privacy centric. * Is Bing based, like DDG. * Is Euro hosted.
So a good mix of DuckDuckGo and Ecosia, with the key difference being that we donate 50% of our entire revenue to charities you choose.
Full disclosure: I am the founder. We're a small team based in Denmark, formerly working on Findx (privacy search engine with own index), which shut down last year.«
