Fast Forward in the News

"Encouragingly, the number of nonprofit AI-focused startups is beginning to tick up. Nonprofit accelerator Fast Forward said that this year, more than a third of applicants for its latest class were AI companies."

"This year, Fast Forward hosted its 10th startup cohort, featuring upstart nonprofits deploying tech in areas such as literacy tutoring, solar-powered fridges and peer support for young people in crisis."

“There are a multitude of opportunities outside of traditional tech roles, creating a pressing need for technologists who want to solve some of the world’s hardest and most urgent problems.”

“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.”

“More and more philanthropists are seeing the potential for high-growth tech nonprofits to solve our biggest social problems.”

“Fast Forward provides workshops, mentoring and $25,000 in seed money to a cohort of tech non-profits.”
