Ms. Tiffany Pang, 2011 recipient of the FUTI Global Leadership Award, named one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs

Tiffany Pang, co-founder and CEO of Appledore, Inc., a company that creates Outreach Grid, a software program for government agencies and non-profits to collaborate to end homelessness, was recently selected for Forbes’ 30 under 30 Social Entrepreneurs list. Tiffany was chosen from more than 15,000 nominees described by the journal as “revolutionaries…changing the course –and the face of –business and society.”

Forbes further comments: “Concerned about the rising homeless population in San Francisco, Pang left her job in Silicon Valley to start Outreach Grid. The company uses data and technology to build connections with underserved populations and provides city departments, service agencies, and community members with the tools to help homeless people find housing.” Her company has since launched in communities across four states in America.

In 2011, Tiffany was a recipient of a scholarship from Friends of UTokyo. As a Yale undergraduate neuroscience major, she participated in the IARU Global Summer Program and the University of Tokyo Research Internship Program at UTokyo (UTRIP). She remarks of the experience:

I participated in the University of Tokyo Research Internship Program (UTRIP) in 2011 and value the experience immensely. And while starting a software company seems a far cry from doing biochemical research, the friendships and connections I made during the program were invaluable and ultimately led to some of our first investors. Thank you for your support! Arigato Gozaimashita!

Prof. Ojima, President of FUTI says, “FUTI aims to foster future leaders in scientific, cultural and social fields who contribute to the well-being of global humanity. We are pleased to have provided Ms. Tiffany Pang with a FUTI scholarship so that she had the opportunity for inspiring experiences at UTokyo. We are extremely proud of her accomplishments. Congratulations, Tiffany!”
