Event description


More of us are spending more time online than ever before. But, by and large our support for charities is still analogue.

Digital transformation has already disrupted the way we work, date, socialize and collaborate. Why should the way we give be any different?

From employability to elderly care, homelessness to humanitarian relief, there is real potential for social sector organisations to improve their impact, their relationships and the delivery of important services using #Techforgood.

Join us at 6.30PM to engage with innovators shaping the social sector’s future; to advise charities seeking talented people like you; and to explore how digital natives can help impact causes at the heart of our communities.

Drinks, nibbles, inspiration and good company provided.

Speaking on the night:

Alex Stephany is Founder and CEO of Beam, the world’s first crowdfunding platform to help homeless people train up and get into work. The model supports homeless people to create an online campaign to raise money for specific industry recognised qualifications, progress through training and into stable, skilled careers. After running the largest ever crowdfunding round for a tech startup as CEO of Just Park, Alex authored a book on the sharing economy and crowdfunding, The Business of Sharing. Beam is supported by the Mayor of London and Nesta and Alex serves a board advisor of Spacehive and JustPark.

Nick Mazzei is the Head of Digital Strategy for BT Corporate Affairs and has led on the development of a number of digital propositions for BT’s Purposeful Business goals. Nick joined BT in April 2014 into Openreach where he led on new digital systems designed to revolutionise Openreach’s network inventory records. Prior to that, Nick served 9 years as a British Army Officer serving in Northern Ireland, Kosovo and Afghanistan.
