What to Expect

Intimate Crowd

200 nonprofit attendees from across the sector to learn from and network with during and after the events. No vendors or exhibitors and an agenda that focuses on making connections with likeminded nonprofits from across the country.

Vendor Agnostic

Our content and suggestions are vendor agnostic – no sales pitches, no product selling. Enjoy learning about tools and strategies that work for nonprofits from nonprofits themselves.

Handpicked Content

Keynotes, sessions and workshops tailored to address a variety of nonprofit tech pain points or growth areas. Discussions based around case studies and real-life examples of nonprofits using technologies with actionable next steps and takeaways to bring back to your organization.

Downtown Party

When in person, after an inspiring first day of content, trade in your work shoes for your dancing shoes and get ready for the Tech Forward Party. Walk the streets with new friends where we’ll host an evening of local food, music and networking.
