The ThinkTilt founding team spent years working together to build SmartyGrants, a software as a service solution for grants management. Through SmartyGrants, the founders assisted over three hundred organizations, from federal government departments to multinational companies, in transforming thousands of grant programs into online processes. While SmartyGrants is the best system for managing grants, the founders observed that many customers were cajoling the system into handling more general business processes.
ThinkTilt was founded to provide similar tools and opportunities to every team in the tens of thousands of organizations that already use Atlassian's suite of tools. The result is ProForma, an add-on for Atlassian's JIRA Service Desk product, available through the Atlassian Marketplace.
We applaud the 1% Pledge movement, which encourages corporations to pledge 1% of their time, equity, and product to philanthropy. However, our team has determined that 1% isn't enough. We have therefore decided to up the number to 5%, and we hope that other organizations will consider increasing their pledges as well.
