What we're about

Public Group

Organized by Regina Walton (https://twitter.com/@reginawalton) and Katharine Bierce (https://twitter.com/@kbierce) and founded in 2006, SFTech4Good is a monthly meetup with events in San Francisco. We gather to explore how tech and people in tech can use their skills for social impact - and how social good organizations can more effectively use tech.

Participants,attendees, and speakers come from a variety of organization types and diverse disciplinary backgrounds, including social entrepreneurs, large organizations, B corps, nonprofits, angel investors, institutional funders, company founders, computer programmers, technologists, marketers, designers, writers, media makers, and more.

Initially called SFNetSquared, SFTech4Good was the first of a global network of grassroots-organized communities sponsored called NetSquared (http://netsquared.org/) by TechSoup.org (http://www.techsoup.org/)across North America, South America, Asia, Australia and Africa, all exploring social tech tools for social impact.

If you're having an event or news to share, email us at san-francisco@netsquared.org by the 20th of the month, to get in our monthly newsletter for the next month. As we have a large group, we limit one-off announcements to occasional paid sponsor messages that help us pay for pizza.

We're a community of individuals, so please join with your real name and a picture. No handles and no orgs, with the exception of our sponsors. Thank you for your understanding.

* In 2013, we merged our group with the local 501 Tech Club (http://www.nten.org/community/501-tech-clubs/) which was sponsored by NTEN (http://www.nten.org/). We renamed the group "SFTech4Good" and have two great non-profit organizations as sponsors. As of August 2017, however, we're no longer sponsored by NTEN. However, we thank them for their support.
