From Then to Now: Fast Forward’s Ten-year Timeline of Impact

It’s official. Fast Forward has hit double digits!

A lot has happened since our founding in 2014. Back then, the term “tech nonprofit” didn’t even exist. We made it up. Fast forward (pun intended) to 2024, we are proud to support a remarkable portfolio of 90 tech nonprofits that have collectively impacted 139M lives.

Behind this milestone are countless alumni, partners, and moments that got us here. To celebrate, we’ve crafted a timeline featuring some of the key people and periods from our history. We’re talking Demo Day throwbacks, alumni shoutouts, goofy traditions — all the bits that make our hearts swell with pride and gratitude.

There are so many more folks we want to thank, so much love we want to share, that we couldn’t possibly fit it all into a single blog post. Consider this our virtual hug to every person who has been part of this journey.

And now, without further ado, let’s take a walk down memory lane.
