Growing Tech-for-Good in the North East

Monday, 2 December, 2019 - 17:00 to 18:30
TusPark Newcastle Eagle Lab 27 Grainger Street Newcastle NE1 5JE

 

An event exploring the North East's tech-for-good sector and its positive impact on our community as well as potential funding options

The challenges facing our region’s most deprived communities continue to grow; pressure on charities and voluntary organisations is mounting daily, and all the while financial support for essential services is shrinking.

Tonight’s event, hosted by Donr, asks what role technology - and in particular the tech-for-good community - can play in supporting charities to operate more effectively, to help maximise their impact with their limited resources.

In particular, we’ll be exploring ways to grow the tech for good ecosystem within our region, with speakers and panellists addressing such questions as:

  • How can people-powered finance grow the tech-for-good sector?
  • Why should commercial entrepreneurs enter the tech-for-good space?
  • Finance? Mentors? What’s needed for an effective tech-for-good ecosystem?

You’ll also hear directly from the founder and team from Donr, who are currently scaling a tech-for-good business, servicing 1500+ charities from their HQ in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Who’s this event for?

You could be a start-up in the social impact space wanting to learn more about the various funding options available to you.

You might be an investor intrigued by the potential opportunities in the North East tech-for-good space.

You may be part of the region’s tech-for-good community and you’re keen to find out more about what your role could be in helping grow the sector.

Or you could be from a charitable organisation wanting to find out how technology can help you raise more and reach more supporters.
