What we're about

Public Group

What: LA Tech4Good leverages technology for social impact in the greater Los Angeles area. We're sponsored by NTEN, the Nonprofit Technology Network, at http://www.nten.org and TechSoup's NetSquared network http://www.NetSquared.org

Who: We welcome nonprofit professionals, social entrepreneurs and anyone interested in the intersection of tech+social good.

When: Our monthly meetups cover a wide range of topics, with quarterly, themed, networking events.

Where: We typically meet in Downtown Los Angeles, and we are so grateful to our event hosts for their hospitality.

Why: Los Angeles is home to more non-profit organizations than any other city in the U.S.A. We have unparalleled diversity, measured by a wide number of criteria: ethnicity, age, gender, sexual identity, languages spoken, industry experience, and more. LA Tech4Good exists to bring together people from all literal and figurative corners of our city for conversation and community building.

How to Help: We need 1-2 people for each event in order to make them happen. Tasks include contacting speakers, arranging for venues, event promotion, and buying snacks. If you would like to be a guest speaker at one of our events, please contact us.
