About

Our Vision

We are building the world’s leading tech-for-good movement where every line of code makes a difference.

We dream of a world where we improve technology and technology access for social agents by helping organizations to be more collaborative in the creation and scaling of their solutions.

Our Mission

We are creating a scalable and inclusive tech-for-good ecosystem.

Ovio is developing the ecosystem for digital collaboration and cooperation toward social impact. Bringing together tech for good solutions and talents, we help do-gooders efficiently turn their world-changing ideas into reality and empower changemakers with resources to implement sustainable tech-solutions.

What makes us unique?

By focusing on coding, we transform micro-volunteering opportunities into long-term impact.

Who we are

Tiphaine Boyer

Tiphaine Boyer

Co-Founder & COO

After receiving a Master of Arts in Conflict, Security and Development from Sussex University, I started my career as a project manager for multiple social impact organizations around the world such as United Nations.
When I moved to San Francisco, I was shocked by local nonprofits struggling to leverage technology solutions. That is why I decided to co-create Ovio, a tech volunteering platform. I am most passionate about refugee rights and women’s rights. My appetite for social justice oriented my career towards humanitarian and social activities.

Eric Boucher

Eric Boucher

Co-Founder & CEO

After a Master of Science in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, I started my career as a software engineer in Silicon Valley. My desire to code for good led me to work for a tech nonprofit, Bayes Impact.

Witnessing the huge need for technology in the social impact sector, I decided to co-create Ovio. I am passionate about climate change and human rights. Since graduate school, I have engaged my time and skills to support these causes.

Director of Engineering

I am a data scientist and software engineer with experience working on web engineering and design, embedded systems platform architecture and machine learning.

After studying Physics, Mechanical Engineering (with a focus on adaptive control theory) and Computer Science at Dartmouth College, I spent the next 9 years in a variety of software and analyst positions, ranging from programming smart HVAC systems for high performance homes to developing data pipelines, storage and tools for an education startup working with satellites. I love mountains and spend most of my free time skiing, rock climbing and mountain biking.
