Google.org was the first funder to bet on Fast Forward. And it paid off. Together, we’ve accelerated 102 tech nonprofits through the Startup and Growth Accelerator, engaged hundreds of Google employees through micro-mentoring, and unlocked millions in matching donations and follow-on funding.

Google.org is also a seed partner of the Fast Forward Growth Accelerator. From assembling an all star team to vet the cohort of breakout tech nonprofits, to mobilizing volunteer Googlers to provide tailored mentorship, Google is helping the most promising tech nonprofits reach unprecedented impact.

BlackRock began as a tech startup. They know how hard it can be to take your big idea to the next level. That’s why BlackRock has partnered with Fast Forward for seven years, supporting tech nonprofits at Demo Day and hosting private Demo Days for their employees. At Demo Days, tech nonprofit entrepreneurs pitch their world-changing ideas. As a Demo Day partner, we work with you to engage your employees in meaningful ways across the Demo Day experience.

Employee Engagement campaigns are turnkey virtual programs that empower your employees to support solutions to our world's biggest problems. Through individual giving credits, your global workforce directs foundation funding to an international portfolio of curated tech nonprofits. Fast Forward provides everything you need to seamlessly activate the campaign and maximize participation.

A pioneer of the program, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Foundation has led HPE Accelerating Impact for three years, giving employees $1.2M+ annually to invest in tech nonprofits. The campaign aligned with foundation goals, empowering 28K+ HPE employees with representation from every HPE office globally. With this infusion of funding, tech nonprofits have rapidly scaled their solutions.
