SxSW Interactive is in less than 3 weeks (where did the time go?) and the big question is: will we see YOU there?
Over here at Beaconfire HQ, we can’t wait to hang out with all you do-gooding Geekerati in The Beacon Lounge, where you can network with cause-conscious folk, catch up on your email, grab a beer, or just rest your weary feet and catch your breath.
This year, in addition to hanging our awesome Beaconfire team in The Beacon, you’ll also get meet some amazing Nptech rockstars/nptech twitter crushes. To get everyone fired up for SxSW, we have partnered with the fab folks at Groupon Grassroots to produce a blog series – “PhilanthroTech: Making a Difference the the Digital World”. The superstar contributors – like Amy Sample Ward of NTEN, Robert Rosenthal of VolunteerMatch, Danielle Brigida of The National Wildlife Federation, Wendy Harman of The Red Cross, Carie Lewis of The Humane Society, Derrick Feldman from the Millennial Impact Report, and David Neff from PwC- will all be spending time in The Beacon Lounge, and dying to talk with you about how technology is changing our sector for the better. You could even grab dinner with one of them, thanks to Groupon. (Details to come)
If all that’s not enough to whet your whistle, what about connecting with like-minds over daily breakfasts, snacks and happy hours (while listening to some awesome live music to benefit Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.)
