BlackRock began as a tech startup. They apply that experience to support Fast Forward’s teams with year-round mentorship and financial support. BlackRock employees around the world engage in Fast Forward’s Pitch Day, and cast their votes for the organization they believe deserves a $25,000 grant. Every year BlackRock employees have joined the boards of Fast Forward’s tech nonprofits.

"The [Fast Forward cohorts] are using technology to solve problems that are central to global prosperity."
