Is there space for a company whose main focus is to do good, but also make profits from doing good?
Like Altruistic capitalism. Don't want to do non-profit because that seems not sustainable and constantly having to get funding.
Are there companies already out there like this?

Got an idea for low power embedded computer solutions for semi-developed countries (maybe too high tech and want to be at municipal level) and engineers without borders already do this stuff, but I'm interested to see if money can be made from helping people.

Im not being a dick, but there is a reason all of the groups that do this kind of work are non-profit and live on donations and funding.

One of the most important things being researched right now is how to bring clean water to third world countries. The problem is, no one is going to "buy" your solution if you come up with one. You could create a system that would save billions of lives in the next 3 decades... and you wouldnt make a single penny from it. The only way to do it is heavy government funding and donations from billionaires who feel bad for having that much money
