Happy Hour with Madison Tech & Social Impact

 Madison is full of talented people looking to get involved in worthwhile projects, and amazing nonprofits that could use all the tech help they can get. Thus was born Madison Tech and Social Impact, a local networking group looking to help bring together these two mighty communities. The group was inspired by a packed-house, one-off event last year, which illustrated there’s a strong demand for a space where tech and nonprofit folks can collaborate, innovate and learn from each other. We encourage everyone to come together to use their powers for good in our their backyard.We'll be hosting a Happy Hour that's part of Wisconsin Start-Up Week on Wednesday, November 7th from 6-8pm at the Argus. Our featured nonprofit for the evening will be Collaboration For Good and the event will be sponsored by Gener8tor.  We hope to see you there.
