About Good Tech Fest:
Last year had more than 1,500 people from 42 countries participate in Good Tech Fest and we are striving to make this year’s event the most global, representative, and accessible yet! If you’re new to the Good Tech Fest community, we work to utilize data and technology for social impact. Unlike other nonprofit or social sector technology conferences, we are very much focused on program and field technologies. Basically, how can we use technology to further our mission? We wrestle with topics of access, equity, and responsibility. We work to make killer applications with the resources available to us. We know that data has the insights we need to improve our programs. While we often are talking about technology, our real passion is impact. Good Tech Fest is an impact conference first and foremost. So if you’re a program manager, developer, product guru, data scientist, visualisation expert, grantmaker, founder, or just plain impact nerd, join us at Good Tech Fest!
