The Goodnik meetup is a group of social entrepreneurs and nonprofit innovators who meet regularly to explore the use of new technology and other resources in the promotion of social causes. Our events include workshops, seminars, and conferences on topics such as the use of social media, web development tools, graphic design, fundraising tools, and emerging technology that helps solve real-world problems. And of course, sometimes we get together just for fun or to connect with other like-minded people who are interested in starting their own social enterprise or working with others in the field. The Goodnik meetup is only one aspect of Goodnik's activities, so make sure to check in at Goodnik.org for more information and find other resources that support social entrepreneurs and social responsibility.
