The world's toughest social problems deserve the best technology solutions. Fast Forward equips tech nonprofits with the financial and human capital necessary to scale solutions to global issues like education, healthcare, human rights, and the environment. We believe that if more nonprofits incorporate open source software, always connected devices, inexpensive variable cost web infrastructure, and APIs, we can achieve unprecedented social impact.
