The Tepia Manifesto

One of the reasons Tepia was founded was because we wanted to break away from the purely profit-motivated attitude that Silicon Valley seems overridden by. We wanted to make technology human again, and while it hasn’t been the easiest journey, it’s been an extremely fulfilling one.

Our clarity of purpose has always been present in our minds, but we never got round to putting pen on paper, or rather finger to keyboard, to articulate it.

Until now.

This is our manifesto.

The tech industry is polluted by technology that serves a purpose other than the improvement of human life.

Silicon Valley creates incredible tech, but often at the cost of those who produce it. We know. We’ve seen it.

It’s driven by greed. Manipulation. Hunger for power.

We disagree.

Technology should be used as a tool for those who want to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

We’re not naive. We understand the need for profitability.

But we want to work with those who think beyond their back pocket.

With those who think of the impact that their technology will have on those who use it.

We want to work with leaders trying to provide a human-first service, leaders who are trying to make their employees’ lives easier and more fulfilling, leaders who want to be more efficient and sustainable.

We don’t want to work with those who create technology that prioritizes profit at the expense of everything else.

We don’t want to work with those who wield technology like a weapon, rather than as a tool.

We want to take advantage of the incredible opportunity given to us simply by being born into the information age to use technology for the long-term benefit of those who use it.

We believe that those who are armed with a good idea and the strength of will to see it through are those who make the world a better place.

We want to help.

We are Tepia.
