We Released the First-Ever Tech Nonprofit Playbook to Scale Social Impact Startups Globally

Fast Forward Just Released The Tech Nonprofit Playbook, Made Possible by AT&T and Vanguard Charitable

Our biggest problems deserve our best tech – and the innovators building these solutions deserve the best advice on how to achieve impact. That’s why we’re excited to share the resource we created to help: The Tech Nonprofit Playbook. This comprehensive (read: 15 chapter) guide to starting and scaling a tech nonprofit shares just about everything social entrepreneurs need to launch their tech for good idea. Need guidance on how to go about building your product? We got you. Want the down-low on all things impact measurement? Look no further than the Playbook.

We’ve learned a lot over the last seven years helping over 50 tech nonprofits scale through our Accelerator. We distilled these learnings into The Tech Nonprofit Playbook, which gives social entrepreneurs around the world access to key advice from successful tech nonprofit leaders who have transformed the social impact space.

We’re so grateful to our partners AT&T, the seed funder of the Playbook, and Vanguard Charitable for making The Tech Nonprofit Playbook possible. Anne Wintroub, Director of Social Innovation at AT&T, spoke to the alignment of AT&T and Fast Forward’s work: “AT&T Foundation is the seed funder of this playbook. AT&T is committed to advancing education, strengthening communities, and improving lives. Through philanthropic initiatives and meaningful collaborations, AT&T and the AT&T Foundation support projects that create opportunities, make connections, and address community needs where we – and our customers – live and work.”

These are unprecedented times: we’re in the midst of a global pandemic, growing economic insecurity, and a racial justice uprising. With the need for scalable solutions greater now than ever, The Tech Nonprofit Playbook will support entrepreneurs across the world in creating large-scale impact across sectors and communities.
