    See demos of social benefit apps where we plan to:
    Give developers a place to share their prototypes and apps with the subject matter experts who can provide useful feedback from direct experiences in the sector.

    Nonprofits get a chance to see what kind of apps for social change are being created and what is possible.

    Get ideas from nonprofits and issue advocates, and turn those ideas into an actionable format so developers could build on them and eventually turn those ideas into apps.

    Create a discussion environment between software engineers and social change agents and demystify apps for social benefit.

    Our goal is to create tools and apps that make the world a better place.
