Meeting Description:

In this webinar Sam Chenkin will discuss the changing nature of technology within nonprofit organizations. Using technology to be efficient is no longer enough to stay relevant as a nonprofit. Even using data effectively is old news. Today, nonprofits are expected to “disrupt” social ills through the network effects and scale of technology.

During this event, we’ll discuss this trend, its opportunities, and its dangers. We’ll talk about how the commodification of data storage, analytics, and AI is making software development a compelling option for nonprofits. And we’ll talk about how your nonprofit can take an idea from inception through to the creation of a website or app. The for-profit world isn’t going to fix the world, let’s talk about how you can.
