Fast Forward accelerates tech nonprofits by investing money, providing training and mentoring, and increasing the visibility of tech nonprofits to scale them to impact. Fast Forward is the only organization dedicated to tech nonprofits as a sector, utilizing a well-established Silicon Valley playbook and applying it to nonprofits. Fast Forward is focused on this new addressable market for technology. Tech has changed how hey communicate, find jobs, request rides, discover love, and now how they solve social problems. Fast Forward scales organizations that combine the best tech with sustainable business models in areas like education, healthcare, and human rights. In support of this mission Fast Forward runs an accelerator program, which in three years has helped 23 tech nonprofits impact over 18.4M lives and raise $26M in follow-on funding. Fast Forward also hosts the Accelerate Good Global summit, maintains a comprehensive directory of tech-based nonprofits, and manages a tech-for-good job and volunteer board.
