One of Victoria's booming industries is the tech sector with many of these companies wanting to do good. Yet often, non-profits and businesses speak different languages and run on different timelines. There are many roadblocks for non-profits looking to make meaningful relationships with businesses. This panel of tech-based philanthropists will provide insight into how non-profits can best engage with businesses who are willing to give.
