What we're about

Organized by Regina Walton (https://twitter.com/@reginawalton) and founded in 2006, SFTech4Good is a monthly meetup with events in San Francisco. SFTech4Good gathers 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.

To see what's going on, SFTech4Good's latest newsletters (http://bit.ly/2prCb7v) and incredible sponsors (http://www.meetup.com/sfnetsquared/sponsors/) can help you get a feel for this community. Also, learn more about the worldwide groups here: http://netsquared.org/

The newsletter goes out mid-month. As this is a large group, one-off announcements are limited to the occasional paid sponsor messages that help cover costs.

IMPORTANT: This is a community of individuals. Please join with your real name, a picture of yourself, and answer the questions. No handles and no orgs, with the exception of our sponsors and partners. Thank you for your understanding.

* In 2013, SFNetsquared merged 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 had two great non-profit organizations as sponsors. As of August 2017, however, SFTech4Good is no longer sponsored by NTEN. However, please thank them for their support from 2013 to 2017!

** Miss you Katharine Bierce (https://twitter.com/@kbierce)! Thanks so much for your help organizing SFTech4Good.
