PitchIt Podcast #48: Adam Nash of Daffy

On episode 48, I talk with Adam Nash of Daffy. Daffy’s mission is to help people be more generous more often. 

When talking to Adam, you can tell this is beyond just a company for him. He has a passion for giving. While giving has always been a part of society, the last decade has seen the space skyrocket in popularity.

Adam and I discussed his extensive background in technology and startups, the mentality of working for a charity versus a for-profit company, the top reasons people forget to give even though they intend to donate, and the technology that underpins Daffy, raising capital, and much more.
