I'm writing today to encourage you to spend 46 minutes to submit
an application to this year's NetSquared Mashup
Here is why I think you should participate:
A. The potential of data visualization to spark insight into the
issues/cause you're working on could be transformative in
accelerating your work forward.
B. The exposure that NetSquared brings to social innovation
projects is both unique and far-reaching.
C. NetSquared is currently working with software developers,
product managers and other technologists interested in
contributing world-class technological expertise to your work
D. The $ point. There's 100k up for grabs. More details here.
Social change makers and web innovators have come together in cities across the nation to share ideas, network, and build community web resources and network. Now join us, so Chicago can grow more technology savvy social change organizations that benefit our local communities. Staff and volunteers of non-profits, web innovators, and any individuals pushing for change are encouraged to attend.
We encourage anyone who is interested in the intersection of tech and social good - tech encompasses everything from IT to social media, from software to hardware; social good encompasses everything from non-profits to NGOs, from small community coalitions to large formal organizations. Other groups may focus on the marketing and fundraising aspects of non-profits; we're an active community building and organizing group focused primarily on fostering collaboration and communication.
