In light of the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States the topic of giving thanks in a startup is very apropos. Giving thanks is an important part of startup culture and should be incorporated into the standard rhythm. Here are some ways we give thanks by helping others and by enjoying each others’ company :

  • Donate 1% of our time to local non-profits
  • Donate used computers and monitors to local non-profits
  • Company-wide off-site quarterly celebrations
  • Catered Monday morning breakfast and Friday lunch to break bread as a team

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone — all the best and happiness.

What else? What are some other ways to give thanks in a startup?
