Improve the World by Accelerating Tech Nonprofits
Technology has the power and reach to be a force for good. Fast Forward unlocks the power of the tech community to tackle social issues. From poverty, to education access, to improving health, to environmental degradation—technology can impact lives at scale unmatched in human history.
But there’s a gap in support for tech nonprofits who, in the early stages, need to build their product and prove their model. We look for product-driven nonprofits that leverage open source software, always connected mobile devices, open APIs, and inexpensive variable cost web infrastructure to solve education, environmental, health, and human rights issues. Fast Forward then provides financial and human capital to help scale these technology solutions and maximize impact.

It's refreshing to hear from people who are pursuing solutions to problems, rather than just pursuing a business that makes a lot of money.
