We've combined the power of NetSquared & NTEN's 501 Tech Clubs to create San Francisco Tech4Good. We gather monthly in San Francisco and the East Bay to explore how technology is being leveraged for social impact. We see a big opportunity to share experiences and take action on local and global issues.
We're were the first of a global network of grassroots-organized communities sponsored called NetSquared by TechSoup.org across North America, South America, Asia, Australia and Africa, all exploring social tech tools for social change. In 2013, we merged our group with the local 501 Tech Club which was sponsored by NTEN. We renamed the group "SFTech4Good" and have two great nonprofit organizations as sponsors.
We come from a variety of organization types and diverse disciplinary backgrounds. Among them: social entrepreneurs, large organizations, b-corps, non-profits, angel investors, institutional funders, company founders, computer programmers, technologists, marketers, designers, writers, media makers, and beyond.
If you're having an event or have some other news you want us to alert the group, feel free to let us know about it. If you get it to us far enough in advance no later than the 3rd week of the month, it can be a part of our monthly newsletter for the next month. As we have a large group, we don't spam our members with one-off announcements.
We're a community of individuals, so please join with your real name and a picture. No handles, please.
